The Warwick Classics Network is the umbrella for all engagement activity undertaken by Warwick linked to the teaching of Classical Civilisation and Ancient History; including teaching resources, outreach events and school visits.
The Network comprises teachers and academics dedicated to the promotion and support of Classics teaching in the West Midlands. Participants are encouraged to share ideas, experiences, and skills, to be creative in their teaching, and in turn are provided with training and advice to support them.
In March 2019, Dr. Caroline Petit was awarded the Médaille de Chénier of the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles Lettres (Paris), for her book Galien de Pergame ou la rhétorique de la Providence. Médecine, littérature et pouvoir à Rome, Brill, 2018. This quinquennal award distinguishes a book of significance in the field of Greek language and literature.
