The Iris Project has been running a termly magazine for secondary schools, universities and enthusiasts of Classics, Iris magazine, since 2006. It contains a broad and eclectic range of material, including artwork, fiction, case studies, reviews, outreach ideas and articles on a wide variety of Classical topics and authors, presented in a fresh, modern and engaging style. In autumn 2011 we published our last regular edition, and moved the magazine to an online home. The site is regularly updated with news, articles, reviews, cartoons, videos and more.
You can order back issues of all sixteen editions of the magazine here.
We now produce the Iris annual. The annual took the place of Iris magazine's termly editions. The new publication is a 56 page glossy magazine, with full colour throughout. It features several articles by expert classicists as well as pieces on The Iris Project's work in schools, a mix of light pieces, competitions, news, reviews, games and lesson ideas.
The annual has a new look and feel, while retaining the freshness and vibrancy which characterised its forebear Iris magazine.
The autumn 2012 annual is themed on Roman love poetry and its contents include:
An interview with Toby Young on the importance of Classics in schools
Sex Games: Power and the Birth of a Genre in Rome
Propertius: poet and soldier of love
Lover, teacher, poet: who is Ovid?
Catullus in Music: Carl Orff’s Catulli Carmina
Travelogue: Orphic honeymoon
It also includes features on Classics outreach projects across the UK, a competition to win £100 worth of books, fiction, and a variety of light, informative pieces.
You can order your copy by visiting the orders page.
The autumn 2013 edition will be themed on money and more details will be posted shortly.
