13D2 Latin Authors in Situ (or as close as possible)

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

Reading ancient authors in the original languages on site has developed into a major component of the overseas workshops we direct. We have discovered that other study tours do not incorporate this process, which we believe serves to enhance the understanding of the language, meaning of the texts, and context of passages even when the particular passages are not ekphrastic. Our session will speak on behalf of combining the sites and museums with thematically appropriate texts and how this method results in creating an unparalleled educational experience for both teachers and students. We will also address ways to adapt this successfully into the classroom when a quick visit to Rome or Athens isn’t feasible.
