ANNUAL MEETING OF POSTGRADUATES IN HELLENIC OR ROMAN ANTIQUITIES AND EGYPTOLOGY
23 - 25 September 2020 | Online via the University of Adelaide, South Australia
Call for Papers.
We invite submissions of abstracts for the 14th Annual Meeting of Postgraduates in Hellenic or Roman Antiquities and Egyptology (AMPHORAE) to be hosted by the University of Adelaide, online from the 23rd to the 25th of September. Postgraduate students in Ancient World Studies from Honours to PhD level are invited to present their research (either as a paper or in poster form) in a friendly and welcoming environment. Panel submissions are also welcome.
The theme for AMPHORAE XIV is 'Change and Continuity'.
As postgraduate students in Ancient World Studies, we work in a discipline that may be anchored in the past, but that is undergoing constant change. Study of the ancient world provides us with insight into the transformations of thought, politics, religion, and society that define us, whilst also revealing the continuity of ideas and experiences from then to now. Scholarship itself is a continuous link with the past, both in the material that we study and the work of other scholars that we engage with.
We invite you to reflect on the changes and continuities in your own field, and to share your research and ideas with fellow peers and a welcoming, engaging audience.
Abstracts that do not align with the theme will also be considered.
Papers will be 20 minutes, with 10 minutes of question time.
You may also propose a panel of papers on a particular theme. The panel structure will need to conform to the 90 minutes allocated to each session. Applications to have a panel considered must conform to the guidelines for special panels.
We invite archaeological reports as a specific category of presentation. We recognise that the submitted abstracts may be projections. Please read the guidelines for archaeological reports before submitting your proposal.
