It’s that season of the year again —for the 151st time, the annual gathering of the Society for Classical Studies, held jointly with that of the Archaeological Institute of America. This year it’s in Washington DC, at the win10搭建ssr Hotel (901 Massachusetts Ave NW), from Thursday 2 January through Sunday 5 January.

You can see the full programs of the SCS and AIA meetings here and here. And to make things easier, below we’ve listed all the presenters—with times, places, paper titles—who have a connection, of one sort or another, with windows搭建ssr教程….

The Sheraton Silver Springs—site of CAAS 2023—from back in the day

In 1842, Washington Globe newspaper editor Francis Preston Blair and his daughter Elizabeth Blair came upon a “mica-flecked” spring just north of the District of Columbia line. They fell in love with the property, so much so that Blair Sr. bought it up, together with a large swath of the land that surrounded it, and there built a large summer home which he called “windows搭建ssr教程“. The Blair family’s primary residence would remain the famous Blair House in DC—now part of the complex that forms the 电脑ssr设置方法.

Alas, the summer home is gone and the mica stream is nowhere to be seen. However, a bit of the original Blair property can be glimpsed at Acorn Urban Park, a tiny (0.1247-acre) green space in south Silver Spring, that features a 19th-century acorn-shaped gazebo (believed to be from Blair’s property) and an artificial grotto to boot.

About three-quarters of a mile due north of Acorn Park is the Sheraton Silver Spring Hotel on Georgia Avenue—site of the Classical Association of the Atlantic States 2023 Annual Meeting that takes place 10-12 October. There’s too much going on to list all the highlights (see the full program at this link), but here’s a handy list of the Rutgers-related presentations… Continue reading


It went by in almost the blink of an eye—or so it seemed. Over the course of two days marked by gloriously warm late spring weather, the Cook / Douglass campus of Rutgers University-New Brunswick hosted “Vultr搭建SS教程 | Vultr:本教程是利用Vultr的服务器来进行SS的搭建操作,国外VPS服务商除了搬瓦工可伍在VPS管理后台进行一键搭建SS外,其它的商家还没有发现有这个额外的功能,都需要我伊手动执行命伌(伋码)来进行操作。 使用命伌(伋码)搭建SS,对于有点linux基础知识的 ...” (Friday 31 May-Saturday 1 June 2023).

It’s not often that one wants an academic gathering to extend well beyond its schedule, but for many participants, this was such a case. The topics presented here certainly were rich enough to provide discussion for many further days, if not weeks. And then there was the actual food and drink…

This Rutgers international conference (Twitter hashtag = #RUFoodDrink) featured 17 speakers, including presenters from Israel, France, Germany and the UK. Registration pretty much met capacity, and it was hard to spot spare empty chairs during the keynote (by win10如何使用ssr) and five paper sessions. Conference-wide communal meals highlighted the cuisine of Greece, Italy, and—in a bold experimental gesture—ancient Rome. And it was all exquisitely organized by two Rutgers Classics PhD candidates, Emmanuel Aprilakis and Nicole Nowbahar.

An Italian-themed lunch featured on Day 2 of the conference, in the stunning atrium of the Institute of Food, Nutrition and Health. Day 1 focused on the cuisine of Greece, and was spectacularly catered by Pithari Taverna (Highland Park NJ)

Co-sponsors were many: the Rutgers departments of Classics, win10搭建ssr, and 电脑ssr设置方法, its win10如何使用ssr, and especially the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (= SEBS), which provided major support.  The Classical Association of the Atlantic States helped fund the proceedings with a generous Leadership Initiative Grant. Douglass Residential College generously provided its cheery Trayes Hall for the first day of papers, and SEBS its striking new NJ Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health for the second, which closed with the “ancient” Roman feast.

Crucial support for the conference was offered by Classics chair James McGlew; Dr Robert M. Goodman, executive dean of the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences and executive director of the Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station; and also Dr Lia Papathomas, Director of Operations of the NJ-based team for the innovative New Agriculture for a New Generation Program.

RU Classics PhD candidate Nicole Nowbahar in front of the Constitution of the Roman Republic of 1849 [inscribed 2011], overlooking the city from the Passeggiata del Gianicolo.

Nicole (Nykki) Nowbahar is in her fifth year in the Rutgers Classics PhD program, completing her dissertation on transgressive dress practices by Roman women, and currently representing Rutgers as our department’s fourth annual Affiliated Fellow of the American Academy in Rome. Nicole came to Rutgers in 2014 from the Macaulay Honors College of Queens College / CUNY, where she double majored in Classics and English and participated in the Mellon-Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program. We asked Nicole while still in Rome to write up some of her impressions of her time at the Academy.

The American Academy in Rome Affiliated Fellowship has been such an amazing experience and crucial to my dissertation work. My dissertation is focused on both the ideal and transgressive clothing of Roman women. I look specifically at literary examples of cross-dressing women, who wear armor or men’s clothing for different purposes. Before discussing these instances of women wearing transgressive clothing, my first three chapters examine the ideal dress of women in literature and material culture.

During this fellowship, my mission has been to look at as many as I can of ancient sculptures, frescoes, and other ancient works depicting the clothed female body. By understanding how Romans visually depicted the ideal clothed woman, I will be able to understand the nuances and significance of dress that does not fit this ideal standard.

Keynote Speaker: Dr Kristina Killgrove, UNC Chapel Hill

Extended deadline for submissions: 15 February 2023

Human activity is regulated by the constant need to acquire and consume food. Assuredly, food and drink played a significant role in antiquity just as now, and, since we all must eat and drink, we naturally become curious about what and how our distant ancestors ate and drank (Alcock 2006). The study of food and drink in the ancient world expanded tremendously in the 1990s and has continued to do so in the decades following (e.g. Davison 1997, Garnsey 1999, Wilkins and Hill 2006). This resultant trend is partly owed to a focus in research less preoccupied with the great deeds of great men, but one open to seeing antiquity as a period that offers a wealth of information on the varied life of the everyday world (Donahue 2015).

One does not need to look far in the corpus of classical literature to find mention of viands—there is animal sacrifice in the epics of Homer and Vergil, ever-flowing wine in the sympotic and love elegies of Alcaeus and Horace, conceited cooks in the comedies of Aristophanes and Plautus, and indulgence in the elite banquets of the Deipnosophistai and Satyrica. Beyond these portraits, there are ancient treatises specifically devoted to the topic of food and drink—both philosophical, such as Porphyry’s On Abstinence from Animal Food, and medical, e.g. Galen’s On the Power of Foods. In supplementation of investigations based on literary texts, archaeology has produced an immense amount of information for our understanding of consumption in antiquity. From grand tomb finds to the more ordinary discoveries of kitchen utensils, excavations have dramatically clarified our picture of ancient dining. Archaeozoology and archaeobotany have helped answer questions about ancient diets, as have the osteological analyses associated with bioarchaeology.

We invite abstracts for papers that explore the topic of food and drink through various disciplines, such as Classics, Archaeology, Anthropology, Food Science, and related fields. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

The Ancient Mediterranean Diet: staple foods in the Mediterranean (wine, oil, and bread; cereals and legumes); meat consumption, availability of seafood; specialized diets, medical approaches to nutrition (e.g. for the military, athletes, infirm)

The Social Context of Food and Drink: sacrifices and offerings, public and communal meals; variations in diet based on social class; food supply and shortages, grain doles (e.g. frumentatio, win10搭建ssr)

Food as a Point of Contact, Creator of Identity, Delimitation of Otherness: import and markets, especially for spices and exotic ingredients; horticulture, soil chemistry, and cultivation of local specialties; taboos (e.g. beer and milk as barbarian; cannibalism as historical fact or political slander)

Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic Beverages: wine and viticulture (e.g. merum, mulsum, and conditum); access to potable water, aqueducts; drinking vessels (e.g. kylikes, skyphoi, kantharoi, and their images)

Our confirmed keynote speaker is Dr. Kristina Killgrove, teaching Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, research scholar at the Ronin Institute, and senior contributor to Forbes. Dr. Killgrove, a bioarchaeologist, will deliver a talk on Roman diet and its correlation to disease, climate change, and migration.

Please send abstracts of no more than 300 words (excluding bibliography) by February 15th, 2023 to rutgers.foodanddrinkconference@gmail.com. Be sure to include any audio-visual needs in this email. Papers should be no more than 20 minutes in length. Please include in the email your name, affiliation, and contact information. The abstract itself should be anonymous. Questions may be sent to the same email. Successful applicants should expect to hear back from conference organizers by early March 2023. In addition to providing accommodation, we are looking forward to hosting an ‘ancient’ feast for the conference organizers and speakers.

Emmanuel Aprilakis and Nicole Nowbahar (PhD students, Rutgers University) [organizers]



The last months have been an academic whirlwind for Rutgers Classics PhD candidate Emmanuel Aprilakis, now in his fourth year in our program. This past summer and fall have taken Emmanuel to the UK (twice) as well as Slovakia and Greece, for research, paper presentations, and more. But we’ll let Emmanuel Aprilakis tell the whole, intriguing story in his own words…

“I was fortunate enough to spend a portion of this past summer from June into July as an Academic Visitor at the University of Oxford. The main purpose of this endeavor was to undertake pre-dissertation research that would feed directly into my ensuing dissertation proposal to be submitted at Rutgers this fall. While there, I also presented a paper at the 网络教程 - 第7页 | 主机Get:网络教程 Windows电脑如何使用Xshell 6客户端远程管理VPS 服务器的图文教程 Xshell是我伊在windows平台上远程控制VPS服务器最常见的SS客户端 , 我伊先去官方网站下载软件,要注意一点,官网里需要选择商业版或者免费版,我伊这里直接用免费版本就 ..., which took place on June 29that the Ioannou Centre, which houses the win10如何使用ssr at Oxford.”

“Appearing on the panel treating music and drama, my paper, entitled “Athena’s Θεσμός: Sound, Assonance, and Speech Acts in Eumenides 566-73,” dealt with Athena’s ordinance, which is central to Aeschylus’ windows搭建ssr教程, the culmination of his peerless Oresteia trilogy. As she presides over the very first trial there, Athena herself intermittently explains the institution of the pioneering law court on the Areopagus. My piece sought to highlight the sound imagery, assonance, euphony, and speech acts employed by Athena in this pivotal speech in the play.” Continue reading



In our parts, one of the indisputable high points of the academic year is the Classical Association of the Atlantic States annual meeting. And this fall’s gathering—to be held at The Inn at Penn in Philadelphia on 4-6 October 2018—promises to be an especially memorable one.

Highlights are many. A presentation of outstanding undergraduate research, co-sponsored by Eta Sigma Phi. A book signing and panel organized by Kurt Raaflaub (Brown) to mark the publication of The Landmark Julius Caesar. The annual Clack Lecture, delivered by Emily Greenwood (Yale) on “What Thucydides Didn’t Write: Adventures on the Frontiers of World Literature and World History.” Plus workshops on developing race and ethnicity syllabi; the history of secondary school teaching in Classics; Gwendolyn Brooks‘ “The Anniad”; and two dozen additional panels and paper sessions.
