CALL FOR PAPERS
ASGLE FIRST NORTH AMERICAN CONGRESS OF GREEK AND LATIN EPIGRAPHY
5 January 2011, San Antonio, Texas
The American Society of Greek and Latin Epigraphy (ASGLE) invites abstracts for the First North American Epigraphical Congress, to be held on January 5th, 2011 in San Antonio, Texas at the Marriott Riverwalk, over the course of a single day, immediately before the Joint Annual Meeting of the American Philological Association (APA) and the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA). The topic will be broadly defined as Greek and Latin Epigraphy.
Abstracts will be adjudicated anonymously by a committee of ASGLE; they should include the title but not the author’s name and they should not be longer than one double-spaced page. There is a limit of one abstract per person. The abstracts themselves, along with a completed abstract submission form, should be sent electronically as pdf files to: Nora Dimitrova, Vice-President, ASGLE, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is June 15, 2010.
Registration for the Congress must be made online here. The registration fee before December 1, 2010 is $35 for student and $50 for non-student participants, which includes a group dinner. After December 1, 2010 the rate will be $50 for students and $70 for non-students. ASGLE full members receive a $10 discount and ASGLE student/retirees a $5.00 discount. To become a member of ASGLE, see here. There will be a stipend available for at least one student whose abstract is accepted.
In the future, these congresses are expected to be held immediately before the APA/AIA meetings. This should have the additional benefit of attracting a large number of Classicists and archaeologists to the audience of the congress and promoting epigraphy among graduate students attending the meetings.
Interested scholars from all countries are encouraged to participate.
