Open Access Journal: Bulletin of the Council of University Classical Departments

[First posted in AWOL 17 April 2013, updated 20 January 2017]

Bulletin of the Council of University Classical Departments
The Council of University Classical Departments is the professional forum for all teachers of classical Greek and Roman subjects in British Universities. It has four meetings annually: three meetings of the Standing Committee, and a plenary Council meeting in November, at which all UK Classics Departments (and remnants thereof) are represented (see the constitution, and "Contacts, Representatives, and Member Institutions" below). As well as serving as a voice for classical teachers in higher education on matters of academic and professional significance, CUCD collects annual statistics on students numbers in UK classical degree programmes, and publishes the CUCD Bulletin, which is available on-line from volume 24 (1995), and continues to appear in hard copy at the time of the annual Council meeting.

American Travelers in Italy Online

American Travelers in Italy
Italian travel literature has been a well-studied and rewarding genre among intellectuals for the past three centuries or more. As a multidisciplinary topic, the theme of Italian travel touches on different traditions and ways of thinking from the history of culture and art to philosophy and religion. This digital collection makes a number of titles available in full-text-searchable format for students, faculty, and others interested in Italian Studies.
The search capabilities enable the user to focus on a given Italian city, region, feature or monument. The collection is accessible even to those with a limited command of Italian, since the texts by American travelers (mostly from the 18th and 19th centuries) are in English. Further accounts of American travelers to Italy can be found here.
The invitation for the Harold B. Lee Library to cooperate with Centro Interuniversitario di Ricerche sul Viaggio in Italia (CIRVI) on this project can be traced, in part, to the natural affinities and relationships developed between Utah, site of the 2002 Winter Olympics, and Turin, home of CIRVI and site of the 2006 Winter Olympics.
