The Classical Association of New England Summer Institute brings together students, educators, and lifelong learners for an intensive week of lectures, mini-courses, reading groups, professional development workshops, and special events. Each institute considers the literature, history, and arts of the ancient Greeks and Romans — and how we engage with those cultures today.
The institute was founded in 1983 by Edward Bradley, Phyllis Katz, and Matthew Wiencke of Dartmouth College and Gloria Duclos of the University of South Maine. After being based at Dartmouth from 1983 until 2011, the institute moved in 2013 to Brown University, under the leadership of Jeri DeBrohun of Brown. At the bottom of this page you will find a list of institutes from the past several years.White Nike Beige top Short Sleeve Mercurial Graphic 00qBwA6
The 2019 institute will take place July 8-13, 2019, at Brown University, with the theme “E Pluribus Unum.”
Please note that lectures and courses at the institute are given in English; participation in the institute does not require knowledge of the ancient languages. CANE welcomes interested individuals who are new to the study Classics to attend the institute. Participants may board at Brown University for the institute or commute to campus for the week.
CANE is thankful to the Onassis Foundation USA for its generous support of the Onassis Lecture Series. The 2018 Onassis Lecturer was Dr. Emily Greenwood, Professor and Chair of Classics at Yale University.
