Thursday, 26 March 2020. All CAMWS members interested in the study and performance of Greek, Roman, and Classical Tradition drama are invited to participate in the following two special sessions at the 116th annual meeting in Birmingham, Alabama. (1.) On Thursday 26 March from 5:15-6:15 p.m. there will be an organizational meeting for all interested in forming a CAMWS-version of CAMP. The proposed CAMWS group would present a staged reading of a Greek, Roman, or Classical Tradition play at each CAMWS annual meeting and perhaps sponsor an academic panel. Timothy Wutrich will preside over the organizational session: all are welcome to come to help visualize the structure, operation, and goals of this new group. Contact Tim (trw14@cwru.edu) for further information. (2.) Also on Thursday 26 March from 8:15-10:45 p.m. there will be a table-reading of Sophocles’ Trachiniae organized by Amy R. Cohen. The event is free and open to all interested either in reading or listening or taking part in a discussion of the play. Contact Amy (acohen@randolphcollege.edu) for further details.
