Classics Undergraduate Conference
2nd Undergraduate Conference
Organized by the SJU Classics Program
April 9, 2013
Call for Papers
The Classics Program at Saint Joseph’s University is delighted to announce its second conference for undergraduate students on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 and invites students from all departments and programs in the Humanities to submit abstracts. Abstracts of approximately 500 words must reflect the submitter’s area of study and bear a strong connection with the ancient world, either Greek or Roman. Submissions will be evaluated anonymously by a committee of SJU professors. If selected for presentation, students will author a paper to be read in front of an audience of peers and faculty members of various departments. A discussion will follow the student’s presentation, at which time the author will answer questions about his or her presentation. Presentations are expected to last 20 minutes, with 10 minutes for the discussion portion. The conference seeks to demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of Classics. Submissions, therefore, should clearly establish an integration of antiquity with other fields within the Humanities. Submissions are due on Monday, March 18th at 5pm. Please submit abstracts to Nicole DeMarco at firstname.lastname@example.org. Address your questions either to Nicole DeMarco or to Dr. Nikoloutsos at email@example.com.
