Humanitas Update

In the next couple of weeks, please look for the new edition of Humanitas, the Bulletin of the Ohio Classical Conference (which will be disseminated through the OCC Webpage).  We hope that Humanitas will provide a venue for Ohio Classicists to share information with other Classicists throughout the state of Ohio.  In addition to some of the old sections of Humanitas, (such as the President’s Message, academic papers, and OCC news), we will be adding some of the following:
  • Program Profiles: Profiles of Latin/Classics Programs in the state of Ohio (both High School/Middle School and University);
  • News From Ohio Classicists: A venue to share announcements of interest to our members;
  • Online Resource Corner: A venue to share online resources which teachers use in their classroom.
To make Humanitas a success, we ask for some of the following:
  • Please respond if contacted for a Program Profile.
  • Share news about your programs or of interest to our members.  You can so so by clicking here.
  • Share an online resource you use from which our members may benefit.  You can do so by clicking here.
  • Share/tweet/publicize the OCC Webpage and Humanitas as much as possible.

Deadlines for submission for each issue of Humanitas will be December 1st, April 1st, and August 1st.  Further information can be found in the Humanitas Section of the OCC Webpage.
