Gold Co-Organizes Panels, Presents at CAAS Meeting
Barbara Gold, the Edward North Chair of Greek and Greek Literature and professor of classics, recently presented on three panels, two of which she co-organized, at the annual meeting of the Classical Association of the Atlantic States (CAAS).
Gold presented “Twenty-Five Years of Feminist Theory and the Classics: Now What?” as a member of a panel on “Feminism and Classics Revisited.”
She co-organized a panel on “Shared Problems and Strategies at Liberal Arts Colleges.” As a panelist, she presented a paper titled “How, When, and Why Did the Chairs and Faculty of Liberal Arts Classics Departments Across the Country Start Talking to Each Other?”
Gold also was a co-organizer of “Only Connect,” a panel in honor of her late colleague, classicist David Porter. Gold gave a remembrance of Porter, a former Skidmore College president.
Chris Parmenter ’10, who is now pursuing a doctorate in classics at New York University, also presented at the meeting. Parmenter majored in classical studies and English literature at Hamilton.
