Classical Associations and Organisations

The Classical Association (CA)
The Classical Association, founded in 1903, exists to promote, develop and maintain classical studies in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. It supports classical studies in schools and universities, and seeks to increase public awareness of the contribution and importance of classics to education and public life. The CA organizes an annual conference attended by some 300 people and featuring both academic and social events (2004 — the University of Leeds). It publishes several journals: Classical Quarterly, Classical Review, and Greece and Rome. It makes many financial grants in support of schools, local Association branches, and universities, as well as individuals (particularly students). It has a membership of over 3,500.
To enquire about any of the CA's activities or about joining, please contact Clare Roberts, The Classical Association, Senate House, Malet St, London WC1E 7HU (croberts(at)sas.ac.uk; tel. 0207 862 8706).

Classical Association of Scotland
The Association, founded in 1902, has aims similar to those of the Classical Association. It acts as a focus for classical studies in Scotland in general, and in particular within three of the older Scottish universities (St Andrews, Glasgow and Edinburgh). Its home page is at http://www.lib.gla.ac.uk/cas/.
Friends of Classics
Friends of Classics (FoC) is the society for anyone who is fascinated by the world of the ancient Greeks and Romans. If you have some of the classical civilisations—however residual, from many years ago—and, above all, if you wish to see Classics —Latin, Greek, classical civilisation and ancient history—in our schools, then Friends of Classics is for you.

The Joint Association of Classics Teachers (JACT)
JACT exists to promote the interest of the Classics in schools and colleges, and to support teachers. It has a world-wide membership. It needs to maintain the largest and most representative membership possible. It offers members the support of a strong subject association, and access to a network of contacts.
