CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT
Conventiculum Lexintoniense: 20-26 July 2017
Conventus XIV Academiae Latinitati Fovendae: 27-31 July 2017
 
The 14th international congress of the Academia Latinitati Fovendae, along with the Conventiculum Lexintoniense will take place at the University of Kentucky, Lexington in July, 2017.
 
Journeys is the theme for the 14th international congress of the Academia Latinitati Fovendae. This is the first time the ALF international conference will be celebrated in America. The conference will be conducted entirely in the Latin language, and will include a full range of academic sessions, plenary lectures, and social events related to the theme. A draft program will be published in June 2017.
 
The conventiculum Lexintoniense is an immersion seminar designed to foster ex-tempore expression in Latin through conversations on topics as varied as art, literature, and daily life. While no previous experience in speaking Latin is necessary, all participants should be able to read unadapted Latin texts. Through the use of active Latin, attendees find that they acquire a more instinctive command of the language and, as a result, a more intimate relationship with Latin writings.
 
A non-refundable entrance fee of $120, which covers both conferences, must be received by May 1, 2017. Those interested in participating in these two Latin language conferences should contact Prof. Terence Tunberg at the following e-mail address: terence.tunberg@gmail.com
