Edward North Professor of Classics Barbara Gold was presented with an ovatio (a speech of praise in Latin) at the annual meeting of the Classical Association of the Atlantic States (CAAS) on Oct. 13, in Baltimore. Presented to one or two people each year, the award is given for service to the teaching profession and to CAAS, as well as for scholarship.

 

Gold is a past president of CAAS and has served on many committees. Her ovatio was composed and translated into Latin by Judith Hallett, professor of classics at the University of Maryland, and her graduate students. It read  in part, “Her scholarship has illuminated the relationships between Roman patrons and their clients, Roman satire and elegy, and women and gender in ancient Greece and Rome… Let us therefore applaud Barbara K. Gold.”
