T.H.M. Gellar-Goad, associate professor of Classics and Zachary T. Smith Fellow, recently received the Activism Award from the Lambda Classical Caucus (LCC). Also given the award was Boston College Classics professor Christopher B. Polt.
They were presented the award at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Classical Studies in Washington this month.
According to the Department of Classics at Wake Forest, they received the award for their work lobbying the Classical Association of the Middle West and South to better protect LGBTQI+ members of the discipline in connection with the association’s 2023 conference at Brigham Young University.
The caucus’ web site states that the Activism Award is “intended to honor an LCC member who has worked to promote the rights and well-being of sexual minorities in ways that go beyond the usual academic missions of teaching and scholarship.”
