Early Career Seminar, the national seminar for early career researchers in all aspects of Classical Studies. The seminar provides a friendly environment in which speakers are able to talk about their new projects and ongoing research, take part in stimulating discussion of their paper, and benefit from the opportunity of meeting and interacting with a community of other researchers. The seminar also provides a forum in which early career researchers can meet regularly and network. Priority for speakers is given to those who are not in permanent employment. Those who are on teaching only contracts (for who there may be little funding for attending conferences) are particularly encouraged to apply, as are those who are in research postdoctoral positions. However, all those who are within five years of completing their PhD are extremely welcome to apply to speak. The seminar is open to all, whether established staff or students, as well as all who might be ‘in between’!
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 researchers, mainly, but not exclusively, from the London area, and to continue the discussion over cake afterwards.
