The 146th annual meeting of the Society for Classical Studies (formerly the APA) wrapped up on Sunday, January 11 in New Orleans. Center Director Gregory Nagy and Director of IT and Publications Leonard Muellner attended. CHS team members Temple Wright, Lanah Koelle, Jill Robbins, Allie Marbry, Claudia Filos, and Robin Olson were also on hand, representing the Center at the book exhibit, attending various talks and panels, and hosting our annual party for friends and Fellows.
The CHS booth at the book fair drew in visitors with a beautiful new banner featuring a detail from one the Meière mosaics now displayed at the Center. Publications Production Manager Jill Robbins said, “There was a very positive reaction to our print books, especially our more recent releases, and I expect to see a bump in sales next quarter for most of the newer books. We also took the opportunity to meet face-to-face with authors of some of our books currently in production.”
Recent additions to the Center’s Hellenic Studies Series include:
- The Theban Epics, by Malcolm Davies
- The Epic Rhapsode and His Craft: Homeric Performance in a Diachronic Perspective, by José M. González
- Plato’s Four Muses: The Phaedrus and the Poetics of Philosophy, by Andrea Capra
- Plato’s Wayward Path: Literary Form and the Republic, by David Schur
- Divine Yet Human Epics: Reflections of Poetic Rulers from Ancient Greece and India, by Shubha Pathak
On Saturday night, old and new friends of the Center met at the CHS reception. Classics colleagues, from former Fellows and CHS authors to students and professors, enjoyed the evening.
