Program Description

Living Latin in New York City is a two-day Living Latin conference in the heart of Manhattan. It is designed to allow teachers and students of Latin to explore and practice the active use of Latin in the classroom. In the fabulous setting of Fordham University’s Lincoln Center Campus, the program includes lectures on various aspects of Latin language and pedagogy and smaller sessions in which participants practice spoken Latin techniques themselves. Daily coffee hours and one optional group dinner allow for informal contact and exchange with other teachers. Professional development credit is available.  This program is made possible in part by the generous support of the New York Classical Club.




Living Latin in NYC is held at Fordham University Law School, located at 140 W 62th St, New York, NY 10023.


The Paideia Institute has reserved a block of single rooms at the Holiday Inn Midtown-57th Street, available to conference participants at a reduced group rate. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of the Fordham Lincoln Center Campus. Rooms are $169.00/night (plus tax) and must be reserved by January 23, 2015. Participants indicating interest in Holiday Inn housing on our registration form will receive instructions and a group code for reserving a room.


The conference runs 9am - 5pm on Saturday February 14th and Sunday February 15th.  An optional Cena Latina is held on Saturday night.  More precise scheduling information, as well as a reading packet for preparation in advance, will be made available in the weeks leading up to the event.


This conference is most appropriate for undergraduate or graduate students in Latin, high school teachers, and Professors of Classics.  Well-qualified and mature high school seniors with a strong background in Latin also welcome.
