The Maine Classical Association will be celebrating its silver 25th anniversary on Saturday, October 26th at the beautiful Governor Hill Mansion in Augusta. At this meeting, we will be honoring those who helped the MCA start and grow, while also enjoying several interesting talks on classical themes. Michelle Currie, Colby College, will be giving a talk on Seneca (“Emotion Therapy in Senecan Tragedy”), and Beth Woodward, Bates College, will bring us a little bit more into the present with a talk on art in the Middle Ages (“Appropriation and Reuse: the Classical Past in Medieval Art”). In addition to these academic talks, John Higgins, CANE president, will discuss the CANE Summer Institute.
Be sure to attend this meeting to reminisce on the classics in the state of Maine. The meeting begins at 9 am and runs through lunch, during which you’ll be able to connect with colleagues, past, present, and future.
While you may register at the event itself, it would be so nice if you register early by going to our Fall Registration page.
