Classical Association of the Pacific Northwest

The Classical Association of the Pacific Northwest is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to support and promote the study of classical languages and civilization in the Pacific Northwest (see our new Mission Statement). Current members come from the US (Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, California, Colorado, and several other states), Canada (British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario). The Association holds an annual two-day meeting, usually in early April, and publishes a Bulletin twice a year (fall and spring).

Our next meeting (March 2017) will be held at Portland State University. The 2018 meeting will be at the University of Puget Sound.

CAPN lecture program

CAPN members are willing to come to schools within the CAPN region to speak on various topics. If you are interested in inviting a lecturer please contact him/her directly. A posting on this list implies that the speaker is willing to lecture to a CAPN area school without expectation of honorarium. It is expected that the host institution will cover the travel and hospitality expenses of the speaker. Some money is available from the CAPN general fund to defray some of these expenses. Please contact Andrew Goldman for this information.
