PhD and Master students of the Rodopis cultural association, with the support of the School of History, Classics and Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh, and in cooperation with the Department of History and Cultures (Dipartimento di Storia, Culture, Civiltà) of the University of Bologna, are pleased to announce a series of five Classics Postgraduate Seminars to be held in March and April 2019 at the Department of Classics, University of Edinburgh. We aim at fostering debate and discussion among students of different provenance, interests, and age: therefore, papers dealing with ancient history, archaeology, philology and textual criticism, papyrology, epigraphy, history of religion, anthropology, sociology, Byzantine studies, without any kind of subject restrictions, are most welcome. Papers will be presented in English. We particularly appreciate papers engaging with innovative approaches towards the study of the Ancient World.
The seminars will run on a weekly basis on Tuesday afternoons, 5 pm.: scheduled dates are 5, 12, 19, 26 March; 2 April. Every meeting will feature two presentations of max. 30 minutes each, followed by discussion.
PhD and Master students are invited to submit an abstract of approximately 250 words, giving notice of those dates on which they would not be available.
Abstracts must be sent in an anonymous .pdf file not later than 23rd December 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org (email subject: RAC 2019 abstract). A commission chosen among the association members will select the successful papers, whose authors will be contacted by 7th January 2019.
Travel and accommodation expenses will not be covered, but all necessary details and logistic support will be provided.
Rodopis will also release a formal certificate of attendance if needed, at the end of the seminar.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
