Annual Institute

54th Annual Institute
October 27-28, 2017
Union College
Schenectady, NY

The CAES board is grateful to Union College for having once again generously hosted our annual Institute on their lovely campus on Friday and Saturday, October 27-28, 2017.

The Institute theme was Tene tranquillum et utere Latina, and now more than ever we need to be reminded of that sturdy old Roman stoicism and to continue to think of ways of putting old wine into new bottles. 

Presentations began on Friday at 1pm. The keynote speaker, Ann Patty, gave a talk about her book, Living with a Dead Language, at our banquet on Friday evening. Presentations continued on Saturday from 8am-3:30pm. 

  • Kitrina Finlayson, New Hartford Central School District, “Technology and Flipping in a Dynamic Latin Class”
  • Thomas Hayes, Suffolk CCC, “Sex, Lies and Make-overs: Ovid in Community Education”
