Abstract submissions are invited for the fourth Annual Meeting of Postgraduates in Hellenic Or Roman Antiquities (AMPHORA), to be held at the Caulfield campus of Monash University (Melbourne) from Wednesday, 29th September until Friday, 1st October, 2010. AMPHORA 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: ‘Breaking Down Borders: Transgressing Boundaries in the Ancient World’, is intended to accommodate research from (but not limited to) all of the fields of Classical Philology, Classical Art and Literature, Ancient History, Philosophy, Archaeology, Late Antiquity Studies, and all other areas of Ancient World Studies, and abstracts addressing any interpretation of the topic 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 September 3rd, 2010 to amphoraiv@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 Tuesday, September 28th, 2010.

Conference registration is free, but there will be a fee for attending the conference dinner on the Friday evening, which has yet to be advised.
