73rd Annual ACL Institute CANCELED
Out of concern for the safety, health, and well-being of our members, the ACL Board of Governors has voted to cancel the 73rd annual Institute scheduled this summer at the College of Charleston. The widespread and ongoing travel and other restrictions due to the pandemic made this decision necessary.
The 2021 ACL Institute will be held at Washington University in St. Louis as planned. The Vice President and the Executive Director are working to secure space at the College of Charleston for 2022.
The Program Committee is developing a plan for a Virtual Institute at the end of June. A Virtual Institute will offer a flexible format and schedule that will provide a variety of ways to participate. Participants will have the option of attending pre-recorded and/or live sessions, not to mention online discussions on a variety of pedagogical and professional topics. Please watch for upcoming news about how this will work and how you can participate.
The ACL Office will contact members concerning a refund of any Institute registration fees paid.
SPRING CONFERENCE CANCELED
In December 2015, San Francisco State University's (SFSU) Department of Classics completed its first initiation ceremony into
Eta Sigma Phi, Honorary Society for Classical Studies. Now recognized as the Iota Phi Chapter of Eta Sigma Phi, SFSU just completed its third initiation ceremony in December 2016, welcoming 11 new members into the chapter, which totals 36 members in just three semesters as an active chapter. The Iota Phi Chapter consists of both undergraduates and graduates enrolled not only as Classics majors, but also as History, Philosophy, and Biology majors, who are passionate about the study of Latin and Greek.
