Dickinson Latin Workshop
Saturday, March 26, 2011
Julius Caesar in his Time: The General as Historian
with Hans-Friedrich Mueller
Place: Dickinson College (Pennsylvania), Tome 115, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Julius Caesar was a controversial figure in his own day and his writings continue to raise interesting questions about war and peace, empire, Roman values, leadership, and the roles and purposes of historiography. Caesar's Gallic War, for generations a standard school text, is about to regain some of its old prominence in the Latin classroom by being paired with Vergil's Aeneid in the newly revised AP Latin exam to be offered in 2013. This workshop considers Caesar both as a historical figure and as an author. It will include strategies for teaching Caesar in a sophisticated and interesting way, and updates on how scholars and historians have reevaluated his career and works in recent years. Special attention will be given to themes shared with the Aeneid.

Pre-register by March 7. For more information go to http://www.dickinson.edu/academics/programs/classical-studies/Classical-Studies/CAESAR-WORKSHOP-WITH-HANS-MUELLER,-Saturday,-March-26,-2011
