ASCS 40 ABSTRACTS DUE 31 JULY

Over the next few days, we hope that the abstracts@ascs.org.au account will receive a deluge of messages with your abstracts attached.

Please keep the following in mind when composing and sending your submission.
1. Submit your abstract as a word file, not a PDF.
2. Resave the file. If you can call it (your) LastnameFirstnameASCS40, you will be helping the convener to keep the files in order. Uniformity of name is key to the system and so if you do not do this she has to. As an example, her own abstract file would be called WelchKathrynASCS40.
3. If you are submitting a panel (and please consider doing so), please send the panel description and the three abstracts as separate word files. We promise you they will be kept together, but they also have to be read separately by the committee.
4. Proofread your abstract. The committee members will really appreciate this and it saves us a lot of time in the next stage of the process.

The committee convener can (and will) rename and separate the files if you forget and will be back to you immediately if you accidentally send a PDF, but your observance of these details make the processing easier and that means that all the abstracts can be more swiftly passed on to the review committee.

Please note that the new request for biographical details on the form is for the use of chairs of session at the conference, so just add a few indications of what you would like to be said by way of introduction.

Hi all, the CFP for the postgraduate conference, AMPHORAE XII is now out. The theme for this conference is 'Constructions and Transgressions'.

AMPHORAE XII

University of Auckland, 4-6 July 2018

We invite submission of abstracts for the 12th Annual Meeting of Postgraduates in Hellenic Or Roman Antiquities and Egyptology (AMPHORAE), to be held in Auckland from 4–6 July 2018. The conference is open to postgraduate students from Honours to PhD level, and aims to create a friendly, inclusive environment to present your research and interact with other postgraduates. Postgraduate students who are between degrees are also welcome.

The theme for 2018 is ‘Constructions and Transgressions’, and we hope to bring together speakers on a wide range of topics and subject areas. We invite papers on any ancient topic, including Egyptian, Greek and Roman history (up to and including late antiquity), the ancient Near East, archaeology, ancient literature and language, ancient art, and reception studies. We also welcome panel submissions.

Papers should be no more than 20 minutes in length and will be followed by 5 minutes of discussion.

Thanks to the generous support of the Australasian Society for Classical Studies, we will be able to offer a number of student travel subsidies to assist with the cost of attending the conference. Preference will be given to postgraduates in Australasia who have joined ASCS. Please send a completed Travel Subsidy Application Form (available on the conference website: http://amphorae2018.co.nz/conference/forms/ ) to abstracts@amphorae2018.co.nz by 1 June if you would like to be considered for a travel subsidy.
