Announcing Montclair State University’s 2019 Classics Day celebration from 9:00 AM to 1:30 PM on Friday, November 1!  Registration on-site begins at 8:30 AM.  Classics Day is an annual event sponsored by the Department and by the Institute for the Humanities. This year’s edition — the thirty-first, since its inception in 1989 — includes talks by Montclair State University’s Classics and Humanities faculty on Virgil as a medieval sorcerer, the Pygmalion myth in modern film, the evidence for Cleopatra as a historical figure, and characters from Greek and Sanskrit epic compared. The program culminates in a written contest on Roman history and culture, mythology, and Latin grammar, with prizes awarded to the best school teams. The complete program and registration form are attached.
