The ‘Baynes meeting’ is the annual opportunity for all UK ancient historians, whatever their specialism, and whether in post or retired, to meet for both formal and informal discussion. Early-career ancient historians have particularly appreciated the chance to get to know other members of the profession and to exchange ideas, and are particularly encouraged to attend.
The event is open both to those with university posts and to others at post-doctoral level. As well as an opportunity to hear and discuss two papers, the meeting provides an excellent opportunity to learn about research projects, forthcoming publications and publishing initiatives, and to discuss other developments and concerns in teaching and research.
LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: The Forum Conference Centre (Stevenage, England) and the Ibis Hotel (Stevenage, England).
