105th Annual Meeting, Minneapolis, Minnesota

April 1-4, 2009

The Classical Association of the Middle West and South (CAMWS) will hold its 105th Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, beginning on the evening of Wednesday, April 1, 2009, and ending on the afternoon of Saturday, April 4, at the invitation of the University of Minnesota. All sessions will be held in the Marriott City Center Hotel except those on Friday afternoon, which will take place on the University of Minnesota campus. Temperatures in Minneapolis in early April range from 20º to 60º F., and snow is possible; it will be warm and dry, however, inside the skyways that connect many downtown buildings.


After the pre-conference workshop sponsored by GSIC, a free reception, hosted by the former presidents of CAMWS, will officially open the meeting, 8:00-10:00 p.m., on Wednesday, April 1, in the Marriott. Between Thursday morning and Saturday afternoon there will be 57 paper sessions and 13 panels on a variety of pedagogical and scholarly topics, plus a happy hour for graduate students, receptions and/or breakfasts sponsored by the Vergilian Society, the Women's Classical Caucus, and the ACM/GLCA/ACS College Classicists, and a round-table reading sponsored by SORGLL. Friday afternoon's schedule will include a Presidential Panel entitled “Vox Humana, non solum Romana: Neo-Latin Literature and our Heritage” and a free reception held in the Hubert H. Humphrey Center. The CAMWS banquet on Friday evening will feature President Rob Ulery's address and the ovationes for 2008-09, presented in Latin by Jim May. More awards will be announced at the Annual Business Meeting on Saturday morning.
