Celebrating Our Second Decade of Complimentary Professional Development

Tuesday, November 22, 2022 — 5:00–6:00 pm Central Time
“Language, Power, and Revolution in Mexican and Puerto Rican Classical Reception,” Joshua Hartman, Bowdoin College
This talk introduces major figures within the history of Puerto Rican and Mexican receptions of Greek and (especially) Latin literature. Two case studies will focus on Neo-Latin poetry in Mexico and vernacular poetry in Puerto Rico. The first will comprise a longer investigation of a Neo-Latin epic from colonial Mexico, the Guadalupe of Jose Antonio Villerías (1695–1728), focused especially on how the poem negotiates issues of power and language through the use of Latin, Spanish, Nahuatl and the traditions of historical production associated with those languages. As a kind of epilogue, I will also preview a new project in Puerto Rican reception: an analysis of Luis Muñoz Rivera’s Mens Divinior (c. 1900), a Spanish poem that examines the vitality of the classical tradition in Latin America, including perspectives on “rejecting” words from the Spanish and Classical traditions.

Joshua Hartman earned his BA in Classics, History, and Latin from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and his MA and PhD in classics from the University of Washington-Seattle. He has also studied at the University of Münster in Germany. He served as a Latin teaching assistant at Edgewood High School in Madison, WI, and also worked for the Wisconsin Center for Academically Talented Youth. Currently teaching at Bowdoin College, Hartman has also taught at the University of Washington, the University of Waterloo, and Kalamazoo College.

His research focuses on the relationship between literature and memory, especially during late antiquity. He is currently working on the monographic adaptation of his dissertation, Poetry and Cultural Memory in Late Antiquity. He has published articles on Greek and Roman literature, Roman cultural memory, and classical reception in Puerto Rico.

Editor’s Note
Dear Colleagues,

How many times have you been asked “So, what’s new in Latin?” or “What’s new in the classics”? I was always eager to inform my students of the latest archaeological discovery that brought forth new theories and better understanding of various aspects of the ancient world. How wonderful to include several such discoveries in the month’s Teaching Tips and Resources. For example, the treasure trove of bronze statues found in Tuscany promise to impact our understanding of Roman art while the tunnel discovered under the Egyptian temple Taposiris Magna, dedicated to Osiris, may well lead to Cleopatra’s burial site. And, how exciting it is when an ancient text is uncovered such Hipparchus’s long-lost map of the stars. Indeed, there’s lots new in classics!
One of my responsibilities at Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers is assembling our annual roster of webinars. B-C is proud to have been providing these for over a decade now. I’ve enjoyed inviting a terrific roster of speakers who have enriched my own learning on a variety of topics. In the past few years, I’ve appreciated the opportunity to feature presentations on the broader reception of the classics. Do plan to join us Tuesday, November 22 for the last of our fall webinars—Bowdoin College’s Joshua Hartman presents “Language, Power, and Revolution in Mexican and Puerto Rican Classical Reception.”
As I’ve mentioned several times now, the opportunity to meet with classicist friends, new and old, at in-person conferences is a godsend—especially for an extrovert like me. Covid was trying, especially having moved in its midst to a new community. Earlier this month, it was my good fortune to represent B-C at the Jesuit Latin Colloquium VI, the first since 2019, and the fifth that I have been able to attend. For me it was a particularly meaningful event as the classics faculty at Boston College High School, my alma mater, hosted the gathering. The visit brought forth a flood of memories—my two years with Fr. John Waterbury Kelley, SJ, who wielded a balloon stick in the air as we learned Latin 1 and Latin 2; my Latin 3 class, “Roman Biography” with Dan Shea, the English Department Chair who taught the course during his prep period to “Mahoney,” the senior, and “Sprague,” the junior; Dean Nicastro’s demanding Honors Greek 1 and 2, also my junior year; and Brian Donaher, lifelong friend and mentor who taught Herodotus for Greek III. All but Kelley, who grew up in Waterbury (as the New England Jesuit province had multiple John Kelleys in those days, he was called John Waterbury Kelley), were BC High alums. Nicastro, who delivered the Latin address at his Harvard commencement and returned to finish Harvard Law School after his stint teaching, is the only one still alive. The others’ memory and influence, however, live on in my thinking and teaching and that of thousands of others. Never forget, friends and colleagues, you teachers powerfully impact your charges!
I am grateful for the excellent education I received at BC High and for those teachers who so deeply influenced me. I am grateful for the many students from whom I also learned in my years teaching. I salute you teachers for the very important work you do!

As we celebrate Thanksgiving, let us be thankful for our teachers and our students! All of us at Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers are thankful for your ongoing support.

All good wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving for you, your families, your students, and their families.

All best,
Don Sprague
BC High '73!

Teaching Tip: A Latin Story to Accompany Latin for the New Millennium, Level 1, Chapter 5
This is the third in a series of seven stories to accompany chapters 3–9 in LNM 1. While complementary to LNM, the stories can serve all first-year Latin students.
This reading tells the story of Rectina and her husband, Bassus, who lived at the base of Mt. Vesuvius. As the ground starts to shake, Rectina grows worried and reaches out for help from an old friend.
This is a watercolor painted by the English Romantic painter J.M.W. Turner (1775–1851) sometime between 1817 and 1820. Known for his landscapes, here Turner depicts the
eruption of Mt. Vesuvius from a distance. The discovery of the buried city of Pompeii
in 1738 sparked significant interest in the volcano, the destruction it wreaked,
and the archaeological finds excavations yielded.

Rectina, fēmina Rōmāna, nōn longē ab monte Vesuviō habitat. Rectina familiam magnam habet. Est bonum habitāre sub monte.

Unō diē terra tremit. Est malum. Rectina auxilium habēre vult quod familia timet. Rectina māter bona est quod familiam amat et cūrat. Rectina cōnsilium bonum habet; epistulam amīcō dare vult.

Rectina amīcum bonum, Plīnium, habet. Plīnius nōn sōlum amīcus est sed etiam nauta. Nauta praeclārus est; multōs virōs armātōs iubet. Plīnius auxilium dare potest.

Rectina epistulam dē perīculīs parat et deinde servō epistulam dat. Servus ad Plīnium festīnat.

Rectina et familia ad mare ambulant. Familia Plīnium et nautās armātōs exspectat. Nōn sōlum terra sed etiam mōns Vesuvius tremunt. Aqua in marī tremit. Rectina Plīnium nōn videt. Nautās nōn videt. Rectina lacrimās dat quod familiam cūrāre nōn potest. Ubi est Plīnius? Ubi sunt nautae? Familia misera est. Rectina lacrimās dat quod familia timet.

In Latin for the New Millennium, Level 1, Chapter 13,
you will learn what happened to Rectina and her family.

Vocabula Nova
fēmina, -ae, f. – woman
festīnat – hastens, hurries
mare – (to) the sea
marī – (in) the sea
māter, f. – mother
mōns, m. – mountain
monte – (from/under) the mountain
perīculum, -ī, n. – danger
potest – is able
servus, -ī, m. – slave, enslaved person
tremit – trembles
tremunt – tremble
unō diē – one day
vult – she wants
Editor’s Note: Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers is pleased to provide this Latin story for Latin teacher subscribers to use with their own classes only. The PDF version includes a full-color illustration and caption.
For those using Latin for the New Millennium, Level 1, note that this Rectina story features a letter to complement the letter of Cicero to Terentia provided in adapted Latin in chapter 5. The LNM 1 workbook lesson for chapter 5 includes an imagined letter from Terentia back to Cicero.

As a Latin activity related to this story about Rectina, consider having students compose the letter Rectina sent to Pliny the Elder.

A Report on the Jesuit Latin Colloquium VI
After a three-year hiatus, the biennial Jesuit Latin Colloquium was hosted by Classics Chair Emil Penarubia and his classics colleagues at Boston College High School. Thirty Latin teachers from twenty-one Jesuit high schools in the US—from Gonzaga Prep in Spokane, Washington, to the University of Detroit High School and Academy in Detroit, Michigan, and St. Peter’s Prep in Jersey City, New Jersey—along with a teacher from St. Aloysius College in Glasgow and six university classicists enjoyed a three-day gathering that blended a program of talks and round tables with informal time chatting and networking.

BC High proved to be a splendid host with the six impressive seniors in the Homeric Academy serving as tour guides of the beautiful campus and its state-of-the-art facilities, and the five classicists making sure all went well and everyone felt welcome. BC High President Grace Cotter Regan, Principal Adam Lewis, and Vice Principal for Teaching and Learning Alison MacDonald all spent time mingling with attendees and delivering welcome addresses. On Saturday, Rev. James Croghan, SJ, superior of the Jesuit community at the high school, celebrated Mass in the Loyola Chapel for the assembled guests. Following the service, teachers checked out all the Latin in the chapel! Classics teacher Dann Russo and his musical trio Three at Home entertained at the banquet and his colleague Matt Aumiller guided a group of fellow Ignatian educators through the classics collection at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Joshua Binus, new to BC High, and veteran Maureen Toner helped introduce the speakers.

Photos by Don Sprague.
Five university professors talked on topics ranging from “Communicative Latin: Meeting Students Where They Are” to “The First Latin Dramatic Performances in American Jesuit Schools.” Did you know that Jesuit college students performed plays in Latin at the 1893 Columbian Exposition and World Fair in Chicago? Don Sprague took special delight in the talks by College of the Holy Cross Tim Joseph’s “‘Rigor,’ Humility, and Other Jesuit Concepts in the Latin Classroom” and Brandeis University Caitlin Gillespie’s “AMDG (Ad maiorem Dei gloriam): Meditations on a Motto.” Both Joseph and Gillespie were students during Sprague’s time at Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Illinois. University of Detroit adjunct and UD High teacher Nick Young delivered the paper “Classics: A Means of Reflecting on Social Justice,” and with his UD High colleague John Finley shared “Plautus and Moliere: A Shared Teaching Unit for French and Latin Classes.” All the presentations demonstrated connections between the classics and Ignatian pedagogy and themes. The classics have long held a special place in Jesuit schools.

Of the thirty teachers from US Jesuit schools, fourteen were new to the Jesuit Latin Colloquium while sixteen had attended previous colloquia. Participants enjoyed checking out the Bolchazy-Carducci display and quickly scooped up all the copies of novellae and the Explore Latin titles on hand! The brand-new New Testament Greek: A Reading Course also proved a welcome title. Sprague had tagged all the titles, like A Latin Picture Dictionary for Everyone: Lingua Latina Depicta, Conversational Latin for Oral Proficiency, and Jesuit Latin Poets of the 17th and 18th Centuries: An Anthology of Neo-Latin Poetry, authored or coauthored by Jesuit school faculty!
The group headed home ready to share ideas with their colleagues and looking forward to Jesuit Latin Colloquium VII in 2024, probably at one of the high schools in the midwest.
