from Davina McClain (Northwestern) (via a CAMWS email announcement):

Make your plans now to attend the 90th Anniversary Meeting of CAMWS-Southern Section, Oct. 28-30, 2010 in beautiful Richmond, Virginia! Why come to the Southern Section? It is all the fun of CAMWS and more! Where else will you find panels titled “CNN: Catullus Neoteric Network,” “Desperate Housewives,” “Oh Epic, Where Art Thou?” and “Law & Order: CI (Ciceronian Intent)”?

This year’s meeting is hosted by the University of Richmond. In addition, we will share the meeting with the Classical Association of Virginia as they celebrate their Centennial. The CAV is organizing two special events open to CAMWS-SS attendees: a tour (Sat., Oct. 30, 1:30-3:30) of the newly renovated Classics collection of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, and a lecture (4:00-5:00) by Hunter Rawlings on “Virginia’s Founders and the Classics.” The city itself offers a wealth of history and happenings.

Deadline for submission of abstracts for both papers and panels is Tuesday, June 1. Questions? Contact T. Davina McClain, Secretary-Treasurer, CAMWS-SS ( The call for papers and the online submission form can be found here.
