A Call for Articles: the Classics Library Journal (July 2014)

The new Classics Library Journal has just released its first issue (January 2014), on the theme of Classical Reception in Classics Teaching.

The theme of the next issue (July 2014) will be:

Hatches, Matches and Dispatches:
Birth, Marriage and Death in the Ancient World

CL members are invited to write articles to share and publish here in a digital journal format for all other members, posterity, and to share with the wider Classics community. Articles will appear here ‘in real time’, published online as soon as possible after they are submitted, and will also be collated and published as a freely available pdf/ebook, twice yearly (January and July). The process should be relatively informal, articles could be from 500 to 2,000 words, and the main aim is always to provide information and ideas to help others with their teaching of Classics.

If Classics teachers would be interested in submitting a student’s work, they should first contact the editor as to suitability prior to submission. As student submission will comprise only a small part of each issue, the final decision on inclusion will most likely take place after the final submission deadline.

We are looking for submissions for the next issue of the CLJ which will be titled ‘Hatches, Matches and Dispatches: Birth, Marriage and Death in the ancient world.’

The final deadline for articles to be included in the July 2014 edition will be 30th June 2014.

The CLJ Editor is Gemma Ball (2013/14).

Articles welcome on any aspect of birth, marriage or death in either Ancient Greece or Rome. For example, they could:

  • review source materials on these topics for use in the classroom,
  • analyse or report on the teaching of these topics,
  • consider representations of these topics in art and/literature,
  • offer a brief exploration of any of these topics (or indeed all of them).

Please submit suggestions for articles to Gemma Ball at editors@theclassicslibrary.com.
Suggestions on the current theme welcome, but equally welcome are suggestions for articles on any theme, or suggestions for future themes.
