IMPORTANT UPDATES ON THE CAGLIARI SESSION
Phd and Master students of the Rodopis cultural association, with the support of the Department of History, Cultures, Civilisations (Dipartimento di Storia, Culture, Civiltà) of the University of Bologna and in cooperation with the Department of Philology, Literature and Linguistics(Dipartimento di Filologia, Letteratura e Linguistica) of the University of Cagliari announce a series of 8 postgraduate seminars to take place in April and May 2013 at the Alma Mater Studiorum – University of Bologna and at the University of Cagliari.
We aim to support discussion and meeting among students of different provenance, interests and age: therefore papers will deal with ancient history, philology, archaeology, numismatics, papyrology, epigraphy, art history, religion history, anthropology, sociology, Byzantine studies, without any kind of subject restrictions. Papers may be presented in English or Italian, in order to make the seminars as accessible as possible.
The first five seminars will be held in Bologna, the latter three in Cagliari, on a weekly basis on Wednesday afternoons: scheduled dates are4, 11, 18, 24 April and 9 May; 16, 22, 30 May. Any change in the dates will be announced by March. Every meeting will feature two presentations of 30min each, followed by discussion.
The date for the second meeting in Cagliari has been changed and is now 22nd of May. Moreover for the session of conferences held in Cagliari, the University of Cagliari has kindly offered to provide free accommodation for 2 nights for the speakers of each event, specifically the previous night and the night of the day in which the conference is held. (i.e. 15/16, 21/22 and 29/30 of May).
Phd and Master students are invited to submit a 250 words abstract, also suggesting possible dates during which they would NOT be available.
Abstracts must be sent in an anonymous .pdf file (file name: first three words of the title) not later then 18th February 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org (email subject: RAC 2013 abstract). A
commission chosen among the association members (excluding the receiver of the abstract) will select the successful papers, whose authors will be contacted by the 1st March 2013.
Travel and accommodation expenses will not be covered, but all necessary informations and logistic support will be provided (see update above for Cagliari).
Rodopis will also release a formal certificate of attendance if needed, at the end of the seminar.
Thank you very much.
