A five-week school teacher institute for twenty-five participants to study Latin texts on the themes of house and household in and around Rome and in the region of Pompeii.

College of Notre Dame of Maryland will hold a five-week Summer Institute (June 27-July 28, 2010)for middle and high school Latin teachers. The program will begin at Notre Dame in Baltimore, Maryland and mot to Italy after the first week for the remainder of the institute. Lectures and readings of literary and non-literary Latin texts will be complemented by visits to related sites.
