3D1 A Model for Classics Outreach

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In recent decades, outreach and service learning have become buzzwords in higher education. These terms connote issues both of relevance (how is our field applicable “real world” problems?) and of access (how can we reach non-traditional student groups?). This paper will address these questions as they apply to classics. Starting with fundamental questions about outreach, the paper will ask: what are the goals of outreach, to whom should we reach out, how should we reach out, and, importantly, how should we teach and increase access to classics without perpetuating an elitist and colonialist legacy. Ultimately, the paper will outline a model for outreach that looks both outwards and inwards – outwards to increase access to classics by reaching non-traditional learner communities and teaching with non-traditional pedagogies, and inwards to redefine the field by opening new avenues for engagement with classics and diversifying the voices within the field.
