We are delighted to announce the Call for Papers for the annual Northern Lights meeting, a one-day workshop for postgraduate research students in Ancient History in the North of the UK.
The event will take place in the School of History, Classics and Archaeology at Newcastle University on Friday 24 April 2020. We invite research students in Ancient History to submit proposals for papers. Each presentation will last twenty minutes and will be followed by a further ten minutes for discussion. Topics may cover any area or period of Ancient History, including the history and historiography of ancient Greece and Rome, the Near East and Egypt, Late Antiquity, and the Byzantine Empire. While contributions from PGRs based in Northern England and Scotland are especially encouraged, we warmly welcome manifestations of interest from research students of any institutional affiliation.
Please submit abstracts of up to 250 words, along with a provisional title and 5 keywords, to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals should also include the following information: name; institutional and departmental affiliation; email address. The deadline for submission is Friday 24 January 2020. Final decisions and details about the registration process will be notified by mid-February.
The workshop will be opened by a “Three-Minutes Thesis” session at which all participants – whether speakers or attendees – will be asked to present their projects in order to receive feedback and foster new research networks with peers in related fields. The event will be concluded by a “State-of-the-Art” discussion where a panel composed of early career researchers and established academics will be discussing current research trends and ongoing challenges in Ancient History. It is our aim to create a supportive environment and encourage the formation of a collaborative community of young researchers.
