torque.jpgMRECC is an international organization founded in October 2016 by faculty and graduate students in classics and education from six different universities across the United States. Since then, it has grown to include 430 affiliated students, staff, faculty, and independent researchers from a variety of backgrounds and institutions worldwide. The purpose of this organization is to facilitate discussion and establish a supportive network of international scholars interested in topics related to multiculturalism, race, and ethnicity in classics whether that is from the perspective of languages, literature, pedagogy, and/or material culture. We are not only dedicated to promoting the study of multiculturalism, race, and ethnicity but also committed to increasing the diversity of students, staff, and faculty within the professional world of classics. It is our hope in the coming years to increase the number of panels we organize, found a publication, and establish an annual conference as we grow our affiliation with other established classics organizations. For more information on the founding and aim of MRECC, please see the Mission page. If you are interested in becoming an official member, check out our Membership page for more information on how to register. If you are part of an organization that would like to be affiliated with MRECC and have us post about your events and publications, please send an email to the MRECC Executive Board at And don’t forget to join the conversation on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
