The Society for Ancient Studies (SAS)—an interdisciplinary graduate student organization at New York University —is hosting its second-annual one-day undergraduate conference on the ancient world on Friday, 7 February 2020 in Manhattan. This conference, organized and moderated by graduate students for talented undergraduates in New York and surrounding states, will offer participants the opportunity to present their scholarship in the engaged professional setting of an academic conference. Participants will be expected to present a 15-minute paper to a forum of their undergraduate peers, graduate students, and NYU faculty. Submissions may be a condensed version, or a particularly strong chapter, of an undergraduate thesis, an exceptional course paper, or an independent research project. We welcome work informed by any and all theories and methodologies, and encourage submission from students working in any discipline (e.g. Classical Philology, Anthropology, Archaeology, History, etc.) or geo-temporal focus (e.g. Mediterranean and Atlantic Studies; Egyptology; Pre-Columbian, Near East, and East Asian Civilizations). Food will be provided to all participants, and any audio-visual necessities will be arranged. Some local travel reimbursements will also be available. ABSTRACT DEADLINE: Friday, November 22nd, 2019 Interested students should email abstracts of no more than 300 words to the conference organizers, Rebecca Salem and Del Maticic, at NYUniversitySAS@gmail.com with the subject title “UG Conference Abstract.” A bibliography is not necessary.
