The Department sponsors guest speakers and films of interest to students and trips to the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. An annual Canada-wide translation contest is of extra interest to those students studying Latin and Greek. In addition, the Department publishes a classical magazine called Labyrinth to which students are encouraged to contribute. One of the benefits students experience in Classical Studies Department is that it is very hard to remain a faceless, nameless number here. Students and faculty interact on a regular basis, and there are annual departmental social events. There is also a small lounge (with a collection of classical books) available for student use, and students are welcome to join the (student-run) Classical and Medieval Society. The News and Events page contains a list of any upcoming events.
Some WWW Sites of Interest to Classicists/Medievalists:
- Electronic Resources for Classicists: the Second Generation http://www.tlg.uci.edu/index/resources.html
- This is a page maintained by Maria Pantelia, and is one of the best guides to Internet resources for those interested in Classics. In other words, it's an excellent place to go in order to find other places to go.
- The Perseus Project http://www.perseus.tufts.edu
- A wonderful site that has to be seen in order to grasp the full impact. Among other things, it provides a searchable electronic data base of texts and images relevant to ancient Greece: literary works, artworks, archaeological sites, coins, etc. A personal favourite of Prof. Ager's.
- Diotima http://www.uky.edu/ArtsSciences/Classics/gender.html
- Another great site. The subtitle of this one is
Materials for the Study of Women and Gender in the Ancient World. That says it all.
- ROMARCH List Home Page http://www.arts.usyd.edu.au/departs/classical/dropbox/ROMARCH.html
- A site that provides a central compendium of Internet resources on the art and archaeology of Rome and the Italian provinces. There's also a Romarch mail list (see further in the section on e-mail lists).
- ULYSSES: Hellenic Ministry of Culture http://www.culture.gr/
- A gateway to Greece's own Web pages on various sites and museums.
- Classical Association of Canada Home Page http://cac-scec.ca/
- A useful site for those who want to stay in touch with what's happening in Classics in this country.
- TOCS-IN http://www.chass.utoronto.ca/amphoras/tocs.html
- An extremely useful searchable data-base of recent (the last few years) article titles of interest to Classicists.
