54th Annual Institute - Tempus Fugit!

The Annual Institute committee and our presenters have prepared an outstanding program for participants. As you begin preparing to head to Schenectady, there are a few items for your consideration.

Please park in the lot at the corner of Seward Place and Nott Street. It is the closest lot to the Reamer Campus Center, and is open to campus visitors. Reamer is at number 45 on the following map:

Please Come Ready to Share
The last workshop on Saturday is going to give all participants an opportunity to share ideas about their favorite lessons, projects, etc. While it will be helpful if participants could bring copies of materials they would like to share, it is not necessary. (Items can also be shared electronically and posted to the CAES website after the workshop.) Idea sharing is the goal of the session so that people can walk away with something to use in their classroom.

Speaking of sharing, please consider bringing an item to donate to the CAES Emporium. Gently used books, teaching materials, realia, et al. are all greatly appreciated.

Late Registration
If you plan to attend but have not yet registered, please do so statim. You may also register at the door. N.B. Meals may not be available at this late of a date.

ASCSA Study Opportunities in Greece 2018-2019



The American School of Classical Studies at Athens, one of America’s most distinguished centers devoted to advanced teaching and research, was founded in 1881 to provide American graduate students and scholars a base for their studies in the history and civilization of the Greek world. Today, over 135 years later, it is still a teaching institution, providing graduate students a unique opportunity to study firsthand the sites and monuments of Greece. The School is also a superb resource for senior scholars pursuing research in many fields ranging from prehistoric to modern Greece, thanks to its internationally renowned libraries, the Blegen, focusing on all aspects of Greece from its earliest prehistory to late antiquity, and the Gennadius, which concentrates on the Greek world after the end of antiquity.
