You are invited to join in the occasion to remember and celebrate our dear, late colleague, Paul B. Harvey, Jr.  A Requiem Mass for Paul will be held on Saturday, September 20, at 11:00 am at St. John's Episcopal Church, 120 West Lamb St., Bellefonte, Pennsylvania.  Following the service, a reception will be held for all who wish to gather and to share memories of Paul, and to pay tribute to his lasting influence among us.  The reception will take place from 1:00 to 3:00 pm in the Senate Suites at the Penn State Conference Center Hotel (for information and directions, see http://www.thepennstaterhotel.psu.edu/).  A light luncheon will be provided on the occasion, sponsored by the departments where Paul held appointments: Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies, History, and the Jewish Studies Program at Penn State.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Building a New World Order: Hellenistic Monarchies in the Ancient Mediterranean World

The department of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies at Penn State invites contributions for the Tombros conference on Hellenistic monarchies that will take place on April 24-25, 2015. This academic event will explore the socio-political and cultural landscape of the Hellenistic states with a particular focus on the interactions between old and new, between the new elites and the established political and socio-economic structures. How did Hellenistic rulers respond to pre-existing structures and institutions? How did indigenous populations cope and interact with their new leadership? How did these political and social shifts affect the economy of the ancient Mediterranean world? How did art serve, resist, or comment on the new status quo? 

Confirmed speakers include Prof. S.M. Burstein (Professor Emeritus, Department of History, California State University), Prof. A. Erskine (Professor of Ancient History, University of Edinburgh), Prof. J.G. Manning (William K. and Marilyn M. Simpson Professor of Classics and History, Yale University; Senior Research Scholar, Yale Law School), and Prof. R. Strootman (Associate Professor of Ancient History, University of Utrecht). 

We invite 30-min. papers pertaining to all areas of the Hellenistic Mediterranean (Greece, Ptolemaic Egypt, the Seleucid Near East, etc.) in all pertinent disciplines (History, Archaeology, Art History, Classics, etc.). Please send an abstract of ca. 400 words (including bibliography) to cams.conference@gmail.com by October 3, 2014. Walter de Gruyter has shown strong interest in publishing the proceedings of this conference. If you have any questions, contact Mark Munn (mxm20@psu.edu) or Zoe Stamatopoulou (zus4@psu.edu).

This academic event is generously sponsored by Peter and Ann Tombros, as well as the College of the Liberal Arts at Penn State.

CAMS FUNDING FOR STUDY-ABROAD PROGRAMS [effective Summer 2014]
 
The Department of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies is making available, effective summer 2014, travel reimbursement funds for all CAMS majors and minors participating in CAMS-sponsored study-abroad programs.  After admission to a CAMS study-abroad program (in summer 2014 this includes the Tel Akko field school and the Rome study tour; in 2015 this will include the spring semester in Athens and such CAMS summer programs as are offered), all currently enrolled CAMS majors are eligible for $500,  and all currently enrolled CAMS minors for $250, to be applied to receipted program-related travel expenses.  This may be applied to the cost of airfare, upon presentation of a purchased airline itinerary.  Students may re-apply for such funds for a CAMS program in a subsequent year.  Funding may also be available for participation in approved non-CAMS programs related to the ancient Mediterranean world; requests for such funding will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.  

To receive such travel reimbursements, submit your request to Prof. Mark Munn, Head of CAMS (markmunn@psu.edu), identifying the program that you are participating in.  After verification of your status as a CAMS major or minor, you will be advised how to secure reimbursement.
