The Art of Translating Latin
Presenter: Robert Cape, PhD, Professor of Classics, Austin College, Texas

The current AP Latin Exam expects students to "translate" using different approaches to translation. This webinar explains those different ways translation works and equips teachers with strategies to help students express their comprehension of Latin texts as specifically directed. The strategies are relevant for students in all Latin courses and help them understand how and why teachers do, indeed, sometimes require a "literal" translation.


Robert Cape is professor of classics at Austin College, Texas. He earned a BA and an MA at the University of Arizona and an MA and PhD from the University of California, Los Angeles. As instructor and researcher, Dr. Cape examines elements of Greco-Roman culture from the perspectives of language (Greek and Latin), history, material culture, theory, and reception. His primary areas of interest are Roman oratory and the negotiation of social values, gendered speech and action in Roman/Hellenic culture, Latin pedagogy, and receptions of the ancient world in science fiction. He has served as Chief Reader for the AP Latin Advanced Placement Program. He earned a Society for Classical Studies Excellence in Collegiate Teaching Award, an Ovatio for distinguished professional service from the Classical Association of the Middle West and South, and an Austin College Teaching Excellence and Campus Leadership Award. Professor Cape is presently authoring, for Bolchazy-Carducci, a text on Cicero geared to the IB Latin curriculum.

Honor Among Thieves: Craftsmen, Merchants, and Associations in Roman and Late Roman Egypt
Presenter: Phillip F. Venticinque, PhD, Associate Professor of Classics, Cornell College, Iowa

This webinar is drawn from Professor Venticinque's book of the same title. He provides an analysis of how craftsmen, merchants, and associations interacted with each other and with elite and nonelite constituencies; how they managed economic, political, social, and legal activities; and represented their concerns to the authorities. His examination of primary source material led to his insights into this demographic's acquisition and use of social capital and created status among their own ranks. Hence, the title Honor Among Thieves.


Philip F. Venticinque, is an Associate Professor of Classics at Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, Iowa where he was honored with the Gaarde-Morton Junior Faculty Award in 2011. Students chose him to deliver the faculty address at commencement in 2015. Dr. Venticinque earned his PhD and his MA from the University of Chicago Department of Classics and the Program and Committee on the Ancient Mediterranean World respectively. His BA in classical languages and literature is also from the University of Chicago. He has been the recipient of fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies, Center for Hellenic Studies, and Loeb Classical Library Foundation. He also received the Mrs. Giles Whiting Dissertation Fellowship, the Dumbarton Oaks Junior Fellowship in Byzantine Studies, and the Martin Marty Center Dissertation Fellowship from the University of Chicago Divinity School. Professor Venticinque has published and presented on various topics about Roman Egypt.
