In Memoriam: Judith de Luce

Dear OCC Members-

The OCC would like to honor the memory of former OCC member and officer Judith de Luce.  For those of you may not have heard, Judith passed away on February 12th, 2023.

Along with her warmth and exuberance, Judith’s passion for teaching was one of her defining features.  Following her retirement from the Classics department, Judith remained very involved in Miami’s Institute for Learning in Retirement program, excitedly planning courses on topics such as the contemporary mystery novel and Cleopatra.  Judith was devoted to service―to her students, to Miami University, and to the field of Classics at large. 

Within Classics, she was at the forefront of women’s studies and her interests focused largely on aging, gender, and power, as well as her beloved Ovid; a project on the “helpful princess” in classical literature was especially close to her heart.  Judith was a relentless advocate for Classics at Miami, and she remained deeply engaged in the larger Oxford community. 

Miamin university is inviting people to join them in sharing their memories of Judith at:

Call for Actors – Plautus’ Trinummus (aka Minimum Wage)

Theater in Greece and Rome (TIGR) is seeking actors and crew to participate in this year’s TIGR performance at CAMWS 2023 in Provo, UT, March 29-April 1. This year we will be doing a table reading of Plautus’ Trinummus (aka Minimum Wage) and exploring whether this is a snoozy moralizing play, as Trinummus’ detractors claim, or a daring play on morals meant to call out the hypocrisy of the Roman elite. This play features your favorite comic stock characters playing against type, including scheming old men, sententious youngsters, and a hilariously inept conman. And there’s buried treasure! Don’t miss a chance to participate in the fun. To volunteer, email Seth Jeppesen at sjeppesen@byu.edu.
