CAMWSCorps was founded on the model of NPR’s StoryCorps in 2012 to interview longtime members of the Association, focusing on their experiences at meetings and the value of CAMWS to their professional careers. Under the guidance of the History Committee, we have conducted 106 interviews and thereby compiled an oral history of our association, a unique living legacy of testimony that will be of great value to  future historians of the field and the association. Our immediate need is for volunteers who are willing to edit the interviews which have been electronically transcribed to a 90% degree of accuracy. (The program has trouble detecting “CAMWS”, for instance: one finds “cameras,” “campus,” and even "Kanye West.”). Each file prints out to between 5 and 7 pages and requires a little over an hour to edit. To volunteer, please email CAMWS Historian Ward Briggs: wbriggs7@bellsouth.net. Many thanks from the CAMWS History Committee! 

The CAMWS Statement Supporting Diversity and Opposing Violence and Discrimination

The Classical Association of the Middle West and South decries all forms of hate, discrimination, racism, bigotry, and xenophobia. We affirm that all people deserve to be treated with equal compassion, dignity, and respect. Our commitment to the liberal arts impels us to resist violence and hatred, whether perpetrated through word, symbol, or deed: diversity is a resource that strengthens and benefits our entire community, be it diversity of ability, age, ethnicity, gender identity, nationality, political thought, race, religion, sexuality, socioeconomic status, veteran status or culture. We unequivocally stand with our colleagues, students, families, and friends to support and celebrate all ways to be human.
