GSIC at #CAMWS2020

Alright, so CAMWS 2020 isn’t going to look exactly as we had originally planned. But your Graduate Student Issues Committee is still preparing some great content that you can get in on!

Tuesday, 10:00 am CDT: Starting off THE ENTIRE CONFERENCE is our panel “Being a Classicist in the Digital World: Public Scholarship in the Age of Twitter.” When we proposed this panel, our idea was to provide guidance on how students and scholars are using digital tools for scholarship, to build communities, and even for self-care. But honestly we could never have guessed how important these tools would be in 2020.

Thursday, 2:30 pm CDT: Our roundtable will provide a place for all grad students (and interested parties) to provide feedback on how CAMWS can better serve graduate student issues.

Friday, 2:30 pm CDT: Finally, our workshop this year focuses on “Interrogating the Hidden Curriculum: First Steps for Designing Inclusive and Accessible Courses.” Presented by Ellen Cole Lee, this workshop will feature hands-on activities to help increase accessibility and inclusivity, which has never been more important than now, the time of unplanned and all-encompassing Zoom.

In addition to GSIC programming, our members, though they are few, are also sharing their independent research throughout the course of the conference!

Tuesday, 2:30 – 4:30 CDT: E.L. Meszaros (that’s me!) will discuss Chaldaean Astronomy in Greek Authors.

Thursday, 12:15 – 2:15 pm CDT: Sara Hales-Brittain, our intrepid social media director, is presenting on The Morality of Viewing and Verbalizing in Achilles Tatius and Lucian’s Eikones.

Friday, 12:15 – 2:15 pm CDT: Sarah C. Keith, our once-and-future President, will be presenting on Realism and Reality: The Elegiac Epistolography of Sulpicia.

So, hey, we hope to see you there!
