Upcoming Event: Classical Heritage Forum II: Language and Learning

This evening forum is for teachers, academics, museum educators and all those interested in the Classics at The University of Sydney. Join educators and scholars as we investigate the way Classical language and learning have influenced education in New South Wales.

We will explore the changing nature of pedagogy in the Classics from the early days of the colony to the present, both within and beyond formal schooling, and examine the shifting history of Classics as the hallmark of a liberal education, as it has changed from a field that was conventionally the preserve of the educated few to one that attracts a culturally and ethnically diverse group of students, with as many young women as men. Against this backdrop, our panellists will discuss the rewards and challenges of an education in the Classics, and their place in the school curriculum of the 21st century.
