'Connection and Disconnection: Ancient Interactions'

Wednesday, 28th September- Friday, 30th September, 2011

Macquarie University (Sydney, AUSTRALIA)

Abstract submissions are invited for the first Annual Meeting of Postgraduates in Hellenic Or Roman Antiquities and Egyptology (AMPHORAE), to be held at the North Ryde campus of Macquarie University (Sydney) from Wednesday, 28th September until Friday, 30th September, 2011. This conference has run successfully for the last four years as AMPHORA I, II, III, IV; in 2011, we pluralise the ancient vessel and thus our numbers by including Egyptologists in AMPHORAE V.  AMPHORAE is a conference designed for postgraduate and Honours students from Australia and New Zealand to interact and share their current work among peers in a friendly and stimulating environment. This year, we would also like to invite international postgraduate students to take part in the conference.

The theme of this year's conference:
Connection and Disconnection: Ancient Interactions’, is intended to accommodate research from all fields of study that examine the Greek, Roman and Egyptian civilisations. Abstracts addressing any interpretation of the conference theme are welcome. 

Abstract submissions of 200-300 words for papers of 20 minutes' duration are requested. Please send your submissions and a brief biography by Friday August 19 to amphoraev@gmail.com. If you would like to attend the conference, but will not be presenting a paper, please inform us of your attendance, as well as any dietary requirements, by Friday August 19.

Conference registration is free, but there will be a fee to attend the Conference Dinner on the Friday evening. If you are interested in attending the dinner, more details will be posted on our website as they become available.
