The Society for Neo-Latin Studies has organised a one-day event to be held in Manchester next March to give postgraduate and post-doctoral researchers opportunities to discuss ideas, meet other scholars in the discipline, present papers on their current research, and to attend a special workshop on ‘Editing Neo-Latin Texts’ led by Prof. Sarah Knight. This will be the sixth in a successful series of meetings the Society has organised for researchers at relatively early stages of their careers. Masters and PhD students, as well as students who have recently received their doctorates, are encouraged to attend; advanced undergraduate students considering a postgraduate career are also very welcome. In the past, participants have come from a variety of departmental and disciplinary backgrounds, including classics, cultural and intellectual history, literary studies, philology, philosophy, rhetoric, and textual scholarship.
We invite proposals from any interested postgraduate or post-doctoral researchers to give 20-minute papers on their work. The papers will be organised into two- or three-speaker panels on related topics. Proposals should take the form of a brief outline of the speaker’s affiliation and research interests; an abstract of the paper to be given (100-150 words) and a provisional paper title. Proposals should be submitted by the deadline of Friday 2 February 2018 and speakers will be notified as soon as possible of the outcome of the selection process.
Proposals should be submitted via email to the organiser Paul White (email@example.com); if you have any questions or require any further information about the event, please also contact Dr White. The event will be held at the John Rylands Library, Deansgate, Manchester.
