The Women’s Classical Caucus is a wonderful thing, and I’ve had a great deal of pleasure from being involved with them, so I’m delighted to see the latest Call for Submissions from their newsletter, Cloelia. I repeat it below, for those who might not have seen it in the normal channels, and those who might not be aware of the WCC and the work that they do. I’ve sent in a note about my thesis and my forthcoming article on Fortunata, so do drop the editor a line if you’ve got something suitable to share too.
Cloelia: Call for Submissions
“Cloelia: Women’s Classical Caucus Newsletter” is the official annual publication of the Women’s Classical Caucus (WCC), which was founded to “foster feminist and gender-informed perspectives in the study and teaching of all aspects of ancient Mediterranean cultures and classical antiquity.” The WCC is an affiliate of the American Philological Association.
