CFP: Undergraduate Classics Conference at Willamette

All undergraduates in Classics courses are strongly encouraged to submit a paper to the Northwest Undergraduate Conference on the Ancient World, held at Willamette University in Salem on Saturday, April 25, 2015. This is a great opportunity to share your original research outside the bubble and to meet other Classics students and faculty from the area.

Don’t hesitate to ask any of the Classics faculty if you need encouragement to submit a proposal. Reed pride is at stake!

New TLG website

The TLG revamped their website!

It has a super cool intertextual search feature.

And also a super cool vocabulary list tool.

And probably more super cool stuff.
