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.

35th Annual Program

Latin Forum returns to Reed College campus on Saturday, February 4, 2023! 

View our seminar topics here and our presenter bios here. Details and the forum's schedule will be shared with registrants. 

The Latin Forum is free to Latin students and their teachers and parent guests, and includes lunch. We ask that all registrations be completed by January 30, 2023.

Latin students and teachers may register here.

Contact special-programs@reed.edu with questions.
