Meeting #2, January 21, 2005, held in Brewster B202, 2-3 pm

The committee discussed Prof. Cerutti's development of CLAS 2000 into a survey of Mediterranean culture. After discussion of the successes and curricula of Prof. Cerutti's current courses, a motion passed to approve the use of CLAS 2000 for this purpose with the understanding that it might also continue to be used for other purposes.

A sub-committee of Profs. Papalas, T. Wilson-Okamura and J. Given was formed to invite a speaker for the spring


  • Prof. T. Wilson-Okamura asked the committee whether it wished to continue participating in the Medieval & Renaissance Studies Film series. No firm action was taken, and it was agreed that Classical Studies would continue to publicize the series to students and to participate with films of its own when appropriate.
  • She also reported that a group of students wish to organize a Classics club. The committee endorsed the idea, preferring a student-organized model to a faculty-driven one. There was discussion of whether and how to seek SGA funding.
  • She also reported that the formation of an Ancient Greek Reading group with two faculty and three students. They are currently at work on Thucydides' "Funeral Oration".
