The Department of Classics at the University of Iowa announces that At the Crossroads of Greco-Roman History, Culture, and Religion: Papers in Memory of Carin M. C. Green (edited by Sinclair W. Bell and Lora L. Holland) has just been published by Archaeopress. From the publisher: “At the Crossroads of Greco-Roman History, Culture, and Religion brings together recent research from a range of upcoming and well-established scholars to demonstrate the richness of the cross-cultural exchange of ideas around the ancient Mediterranean along with the reception of and continuing dialogues with these ideas in the medieval and modern worlds. The crossroads theme both honours the memory of our late colleague and friend Carin M. C. Green, who published an important book on the cult of Diana—one of whose aspects was Trivia, the goddess of crossroads—and emphasizes how each encounter of new topic or genre forces the reader to pause and think before proceeding down the new path.”
In addition, last year, we awarded our first Carin M. C. Green Memorial Scholarship to Spencer Silver, an Ancient Civilization and Religious Studies student and president of Eta Sigma Phi at the University of Iowa. Spencer graduated this past Spring and is now attending the graduate program in Religious Studies at Wake Forest University. She traveled to Israel in the summer of 2017 to participate in an archaeological excavation with Professor Bob Cargill. Her thank you note and pictures can be found on our webpage about Carin, along with information about how to donate to the scholarship fund, a video of Carin’s lecture at the Toledo Museum of Art, and shared memories of Carin.
