Postgraduate Work-in Progress Seminar

Dear colleague

I should be very pleased to receive abstracts from postgraduate students
whose research focuses on late antiquity (or any topic defined in the call
for papers). If you are a supervisor please do encourage your students to
take part. The seminar is always a very rewarding experience both for us
and for our speakers.

Best wishes

We are now inviting abstracts from postgraduate students who would like to
present a paper at the seminar during the year 2010/11.

Speakers give a paper of about 45 minutes duration dealing with any
subject connected with the ancient world (broadly defined), the reception
of antiquity, or classical scholarship. They have the opportunity to
receive questions, moderated by the joint chairs, from an audience of
postgraduate students, mainly, but not exclusively, from the University of
London, and to continue the discussion over wine and nibbles. The seminar
provides a friendly environment in which speakers are able to talk about
their research, take part in stimulating discussion of their paper, and
extend their social and academic network. During the past two years we
have been pleased to attract speakers from twenty-four different
institutions in the United Kingdom and further afield in Europe.

The seminar will take place at Senate House at 4.30 p.m. on Fridays during

Speakers travelling from outside London will be eligible to submit a claim
for reimbursement of reasonable travelling expenses within the UK.

Please submit an abstract of about 300 words, together with a working
title for your paper, to both of the seminar’s joint chairs: and The
deadline for submissions is 12 midday on 23 August 2010. We will not
finalise the programme before the deadline has passed but we will begin to
consider abstracts as soon as they arrive.

With all good wishes.
