Two issues a year, in April and October, plus one issue of the New Surveys in the Classics supplement. Greece & Rome is a journal which delivers scholarly research to a wider audience. It showcases original and informative articles on ancient history, literature, art, archaeology, religion, philosophy, and reception of the ancient world. Although its content reflects current research and its contributors include leading figures in the field, undergraduates and general readers who wish to be kept informed of current thinking will also find it engaging and accessible, as well as professional scholars in Classics and in other disciplines.

New Surveys in the Classics

The New Surveys in the Classics are a series of short books dedicated to key themes and concepts in the classical world. They deal with a wide range of topics, from key figures like Homer and Virgil, to subjects such as Greek tragedy, thought and science, women, slavery, Roman religion, and satire. A New Survey is usually published annually and included as a supplement to a subscription to Greece & Rome for the relevant year.

The latest in the series of New Surveys in the Classics is Volume 44, Sophocles by Patrick Finglass, which examines Sophocles’ reputation as a dramatic poet both in his own day and later in antiquity, considering how it was that some of his plays survived from his time to ours. It investigates the qualities of those plays, focusing on key aspects of Sophoclean dramaturgy such as stagecraft, narrative, rhetoric, and heroism. And it incorporates within its discussion not just the seven plays that survive in full, but those major fragments discovered in recent years which shed so much light on Sophocles' extraordinary ability as a poet and a dramatist. All Greek is translated, making this volume accessible to anyone with an interest in one of the greatest playwrights of all time.

The Journal of Classics Teaching is the premier Anglophone journal on the teaching of classical subjects in schools and universities across the world.

JCT has its origins in Latin Teaching, the journal of the Association for the Reform of Latin Teaching (now Association for Latin Teaching), developing from there through Didaskalos, the journal of the Joint Association of Classical Teachers, and Hesperiam, The JACT Review and The JACT Bulletin.

JCT aims to describe events and practices in classics teaching which are much more than just of interest to teachers in the primary, secondary and tertiary sectors. JCT aims to be influential through the discussion and dissemination of successful pedagogical approaches, and in which arguments are grounded in hard data and observed phenomena in and out of the Classics’ classroom.

The editor of JCT invites contributors from abroad as well as from the UK, believing that the best ideas about the teaching of classical subjects flourish as a result of the cross-fertilisation of experience from different educational programmes across the world. JCT looks for pieces which reflect the experiences of teachers at all levels. Finally, JCT continues to report on significant events in the world of classics teaching: JCT is still the teachers’ ‘parish noticeboard’ and reviews of books and other resources which can be used in the classroom, including ICT, TV, exhibitions and film, continue to appear.

Since 2015 JCT has become a fully online, open-access journal. JCT is able to include hyperlinks to other sites, including those of individual authors, as well as including images in full colour, and has the capacity to embed video and other media. This exciting development means that authors may easily provide links to demonstrate activities or show documentation as part of an article. You can access JCT online here, and also sign up to receive content alerts via Cambridge Core.

Please see here for the notes for contributors.

JCT also has an active Facebook profile where news of events and matters of interest to teachers of classics can be quickly disseminated. Simply search for the Journal of Classics Teaching and join.

The Association for Latin Teaching has kindly agreed to host pdfs of issues dating before 2015 on its website. There is also a limited backstock of hard copy issues as published by JACT available to purchase via the shop.

Whether you are a sixth-former, discovering the wonders of classics for the first time and keen to find out things about the Greeks and the Romans that your teachers don't tell you, or a teacher, eager to learn what you were never taught yourself, whether you look to Classics to provide intellectual stimulation to distract you from the world of work, or are in search of juicy fodder as you browse the pastures of retirement, Omnibus is the magazine for you.

Published twice a year, in March and September, its 32 full-colour pages offer fresh insights into the greatest classical texts, explore from new angles the enduring puzzles of ancient history, visit the fundamental areas of philosophical enquiry in antiquity, and bring you news and views from the world of classical archaeology and art. Designed to be both accessible and beautiful, Omnibus earns its place both on the desk and on the coffee-table.

All members of the Classical Association receive Omnibus automatically (join now!) and individual copies or multiple copies for school use, can be obtained from the Omnibus order page. You can peruse the list of contents for the latest issue here.

You can also browse the Omnibus archive, or consult the catalogue online for specific articles.
