July 24, 2008

Dr. Raymond Cormier, Visiting Professor of French, attended a Spoken Latin seminar at the University of Kentucky from July 7-14. Called Conventiculum Kentuckiensis by the leader-organizer, Dr. Terence Tunberg, a world-famous UK professor of classics, the program "featured eight- to 10-hour daily sessions of conversation, textual analysis (from Cicero down to the Renaissance humanists – Neo-Latin of Erasmus, for example), and lectures," Dr. Cormier said. "All 30 participants signed a pledge on the first day to speak only Latin all week with classmates."
