The Australasian Society for Classical Studies (ASCS) will hold its 40th Annual Meeting and Conference at the University of New England in Armidale, NSW, Australia, from 4-7 Feb 2019. We welcome abstracts on all aspects of the classical world, its reception, and traditions.
The deadline for the submission of abstracts is Tuesday 31 July 2018.
The abstract coversheet, instructions for submitting abstracts, and guidelines for papers and panels can be found on the ASCS website.
The conference convenors are Drs Graeme Bourke, Bronwyn Hopwood and Clemens Koehn. Please direct enquiries prior to 31st July to Bronwyn Hopwood (firstname.lastname@example.org), or to all three convenors thereafter.
2019 will be an auspicious year. It marks the 40th Annual Conference of ASCS, the 50th Anniversary of the Australian Academy of the Humanities, and 60th Anniversary of the UNE Museum of Antiquities. We are delighted, therefore, to announce four special events as part of ASCS 40 (2019):
