The organisers of the seventh annual Oxford Postgraduate Conference in Assyriology (OPCA) wish to extend an invitation to all UK, European, and overseas students whose research relates to the field of Assyriology. The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for students at the postgraduate and postdoctorate levels to present their research to a group of peers and to establish connections with colleagues. This two-day conference will be held at Wolfson College, Oxford from Friday morning, 13 April to Saturday evening, 14 April, 2017. The conference is pleased to announce that our invited senior talk will be given by Dr. Jonathan Taylor (The British Museum, Assistant Keeper, Cuneiform collections, Mesopotamia). There is a conference fee of £25 that goes towards hospitality costs and allows us to continue awarding student grants for attendance. The fee is subsidised and the costs of the conference met by our generous financial supporters. Refreshments between sessions, lunch, and a Saturday evening wine reception are included. Our call for papers has a submission deadline of February 20th, 2018. Please email mailto: email@example.com with your proposed paper title and a brief abstract (approximately 250 words). Successful papers are allotted 20 minutes followed by questions.
We will be awarding three travel and accommodation bursaries for participants outside of the UK on a competitive basis. The awards will consist of a contribution towards the costs of travel and accommodation up to the value of £180. In order to be considered for a bursary, you must email your CV and an abstract (approximately 250 words) of your paper in application to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org by February 10th, 2018. Bursaries will be chosen by an independent selection committee.
