UNC-Chapel Hill Classics faculty, graduate students, Ph.D.s, and undergraduate alumni will be well-represented at the 118th meeting of CAMWS (The Classical Association of the Middle West and South) that will take place March 23-26, 2022, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina at the Winston-Salem Marriott and the Embassy Suites at the invitation of Wake Forest University. Just short of two dozen scholarly papers will be given at the conference by members with those connections to the Classics Department. Another UNC Ph.D., Hunter Gardner of the University of South Carolina, is the current president of CAMWS. CAMWS is an organization for Classics scholars and teachers and students at all levels; its geographic range includes 32 U.S. states and 3 Canadian provinces, but the organization welcomes members from anywhere in the world. The conference is hosted by the Classical Studies Departments at Wake Forest University and the University of North Carolina, Greensboro, and by the North Carolina Classical Association.
