Call for Papers: CSCP Annual Conference 2021 -“Mind the Gap”

Conference Date: 16-17th October, 2021

Location: Online

Call for Papers closing date: 12th April, 2021

Session Proposal link: Here

The team at CSCP were delighted by the success of our first online conference in 2020, which was attended by teachers from around the world. More than 140 people logged in over the course of the conference weekend to enjoy a range of sessions intended to support the teaching of classical subjects and to address the question of accessibility in classics. Following the success of the online event, we are pleased to announce that the conference in 2021 will follow a similar format. We hope you will join us once more on Zoom this autumn on 16-17th October.

Call for Papers

We are planning a new approach for the CSCP Conference programme in 2021. Do you have a topic that you would particularly like to see at the annual conference, or an idea for a session that you would like to present or lead yourself? If so, we would love to hear from you!

“Mind the Gap”

The conference theme this year is “Mind the Gap”, a topic of continuing, and perhaps heightened, relevance in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. We particularly welcome sessions and discussion topics that address the various ways we might understand the “gaps” in teaching contexts – cultural gaps, vocabulary gaps, attainment gaps – and the challenges and opportunities that arise from them. Alternatively, your session might want to challenge the notion of “gaps” altogether, or explore the ways in which gaps might simply represent the diversity of our students’ background and experience.

You are also very welcome to submit session proposals on other topics that might be of interest to our teaching community. These may have a linguistic or non-linguistic focus, and may be aimed at teachers with any level of experience, from those just starting out to those who have been teaching for many years. If you would like to view the conference programme from 2020 for inspiration, you can do so here.

As with the online format last year, sessions will be 30 minutes in length, with 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

Please complete this form to tell us more about what you would like to present at the conference in October, or what you would be interested to see. The Call for Papers closes on 12th April; we will look forward to sharing the programme with you not long after that.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with Caroline Musgrove at [email protected].
