Welcome to CAMWS Southern Section

What is CAMWS Southern Section?

Since 1920, members of CAMWS who reside in the Southern states (MO, AR, TX, LA, OK, KY, TN, MS, AL, WV, VA, NC, SC, GA, FL) have enjoyed a separate organization (with no additional dues) called the Southern Section. The primary purpose is to provide an additional meeting opportunity in the South in alternate years, when the CAMWS meeting is in the Northern states; these meetings are held in the fall, generally in October. In addition, the Southern Section works closely with the officers of CAMWS to promote the study of Classics in the states of the Southern Section, including strengthening of ties between schools and colleges, and donation of funds for scholarships and government advocacy. A group membership is also maintained in the Southern Humanities Council.

The 100th Anniversary Meeting of CAMWS-SS scheduled for November 12-14, 2020, in Waco, Texas at the Hilton Waco hotel at the invitation of Baylor University has been cancelled and will be rescheduled for the fall of 2021. Watch this space for more information
