Council of University Classical Departments | CUCD
Welcome to CUCD Bulletin, the forum for raising, reflecting on and debating issues of academic and professional significance for UK classics teachers (of all sorts – ECRs, PhD students, in-post academics, visiting lecturers, hourly-paid staff etc.) As editor, a role I’ve held since Bulletin 40 (2011), I welcome pieces of various shapes – from short reports on pedagogical events/projects through to longer, reflective articles. Recent issues have included obituaries celebrating the lives of late colleagues. Each number is crowned by the statistics on student numbers. Do contact me if you would like to offer a piece or suggest a topic. We publish throughout the year, building up to a publication ‘moment’ each winter.

Image, Text, Stone: Intermedial Perspectives on Graeco-Roman Sculpture

Funded by: Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft 
Edited by: Nikolaus Dietrich and Johannes Fouquet 
book: Image, Text, Stone

This edited volume explores the intermediality of image and text in Graeco-Roman sculpture. Through its choice of authors, disciplinary backgrounds are deliberately merged in order to bridge the traditional gap between archaeologists, epigraphists and philologists, who for a long time studied statues, material inscriptions and literary epigrams within the closely confined borders of their individual disciplines. Through its choice of objects, privileging works of which there are significant material remains, through its inclusion of all kinds of figural-cum-inscriptional designs, ranging from grand sculpture to reliefs and ‘decorative’ marble-objects, and through its methodological emphasis on ‘close viewing’ (and reading!) of individual objects, this volume focuses on the materiality of both sculpture and inscription. This perspective is enriched by two comparative chapters on inscribing Greek vases and Roman walls (graffiti). The intermediality of image and inscription is envisaged from various thematic angles, including the intricacies of combining image and epigram (both materially and in literary projection), the original production and reception of inscribed sculpture in its ‘long life’, the viewing and ‘reading’ of sculpture in a space of movement, the issue of (re-)naming statues, and the image and inscription in its social and gender-historical context.

Egypt and the Classical World: Cross-Cultural Encounters in Antiquity

Edited by Jeffrey Spier and Sara E. Cole

From Mycenaean weaponry found among the cargo of a Bronze Age shipwreck off the Turkish coast to the Egyptian-inspired domestic interiors of a luxury villa built in Greece during the Roman Empire, Egypt and the Classical World documents two millennia of cultural and artistic interconnectedness in the ancient Mediterranean. This volume gathers pioneering research from the Getty scholars' symposium that helped shape the major international loan exhibition Beyond the Nile: Egypt and the Classical World (J. Paul Getty Museum, 2018).

Generously illustrated essays consider a range of artistic and other material evidence, including archaeological finds, artworks, papyri, and inscriptions, to shed light on cultural interactions between Egypt, Greece, and Rome from the Bronze Age, to the Late Period and Ptolemaic dynasty, to the Roman Empire. The military’s role as a conduit of knowledge and ideas in the Aegean and an in-depth study of hieroglyphic Egyptian inscriptions found on Roman obelisks offer but two examples of scholarly lacunae addressed by this publication. Specialists across the fields of art history, archaeology, classics, Egyptology, and philology will benefit from the volume’s investigations into syncretic processes that enlivened and informed nearly twenty-five hundred years of dynamic cultural exchange.


SASA Virtual Conference: “Opening the Ancient World,” on Sunday-Monday, August 14-15, 2022

Save Ancient Studies Alliance is hosting our second annual free, public academic virtual conference, “Opening the Ancient World,” on Sunday-Monday, August 14-15, 2022.


THIS YEAR’S THEME: Who Has the Power? Leaders and Leadership in the Ancient World




The conference will be livestreamed in the following places. Questions can be posed to presenters through the chat in any of these.

Thanks to our partners for helping bring academic Ancient Studies scholarship to a broader audience.


Save Ancient Studies Alliance presents our second annual conference, a new type of online conference for ALL Ancient Studies scholars & anyone interested in the Ancient World. Our goals are (1) to present and support excellent scholarship by scholars around the world, who work at the at the fringes of the academic community and researchers who have not followed the traditional tenure-track career path, (2) to foster discussion and action regarding public outreach and scholarly inclusiveness, (3) to hold a conference freely available to the public and (4) to continue building a joint community of scholars including both scholars working in academia and scholars who work in other professions. We bring together scholars who do not normally have the opportunity to present and engage with scholarship, including:

- those who completed a PhD and are now professionals in other fields,

- those who left PhD programs, or have had to take time out of their studies,

- contingent faculty,

- teachers, professors, and staff from K-12 schools and community colleges

- public humanities institutions,

- cultural resource management professionals, and

- other independent scholars.


In recent years, leadership and leaders has become a hot issue. Notable leaders around the world continue to gather attention for various reasons. For example, ex-president Trump’s role in the storming of the capital on Jan 6, 2021, is still debated, Indian prime minister Narenda Modi’s policies put the country into an uproar, Xi Jinping is driving national and international infrastructure projects, and Vladimir Putin encroaches on others’ territories. In a global context, leaders of every country continue to make decisions on how their communities should act in the light of the global pandemic, yet often let political concerns dictate their choices.

Problems surrounding leadership today have parallels to similar situations in the past. Leadership has been a point of emphasis for scholarship on the Ancient World, particularly as many records and monuments directly relate to leaders. On the other hand, just like today, ancient leaders had to work to maintain their legitimacy and authority, struggle with dissenters, and face internal and external crises.

This conference addresses leaders and leadership throughout the Ancient World, across the globe and in pre-modern times.

Three keynote addresses will be given by:

Dr. Kara Cooney - Egyptologist, archaeologist, Associate Professor of Egyptian Art and Architecture at UCLA and chair of the Department of Near Eastern Language and Cultures at UCLA

Dr. Amanda Podany - Professor of History at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. She specializes in the study of Syria and Mesopotamia in the Middle and Late Bronze Age

Dr. Sarah Allan - Chair for the Society for the Study of Early China. Her work includes reconstructing the basic concepts of the mythology of China's Shang dynasty.

In this inclusive context, beyond the scholarly presentations, we will also host special sessions in which we aim to discuss a range of issues pertaining to the precarious situation of Ancient Studies. These discussions will broach the issues of how to develop outreach by Ancient Studies scholars, further inclusiveness, and reimagine scholarship as a lifelong pursuit within a diverse yet inclusive scholarly community.
