Outreach Programs

Latin Forum

Since 1987, the Reed College Greek, Latin, and Ancient Mediterranean Studies department has sponsored a forum on Rome for high school students and teachers of Latin. Each year, students and teachers from around the Northwest gather on a Saturday to explore a topic related to the culture and literature of the early Romans. Reed faculty members facilitate morning discussion groups on the keynote address and lead afternoon seminars on a related topic.

There is no cost to attend; however, students must be in high school and currently or recently enrolled in a Latin course to participate in the program. Pre-registration is required.

34th Annual Program

Virtual format: March 14 - April 5, 2022

Latin Forum continues this year with a virtual program! The multimedia Latin Forum will feature video lectures from Reed faculty, synchronous discussions on the afternoons of April 4th and 5th, and an online calligraphy workshop after the discussion on April 5.

Due to pandemic safety measures, the 33rd annual Latin Forum was offered virtually in March of 2021. It was a hit! Read an article from Reed Magazine about the first virtual Latin Forum at Reed College here
