The Ancient World and its Afterlife

The Ancient Studies Program at Saint Joseph’s University is delighted to announce its third undergraduate conference scheduled to take place at the North Lounge (Campion Student Center) at 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 10, 2014 and invites students from all departments and programs in Humanities and Social Sciences to submit abstracts. Abstracts of approximately 500 words must reflect the submitter’s area of study and demonstrate a strong connection with the ancient world. In addition to papers focusing on the work of ancient authors, we are also interested in receiving abstracts for papers that propose to examine the reception of antiquity in modern literature, theater, and popular culture, such as film and television. Abstracts about traditional areas of inquiry, such as archaeology and law, are particularly welcome. Submissions will be evaluated anonymously by Ancient Studies faculty. The presentation time is 20 minutes, with 10 minutes for discussion at the end of each paper. Submissions are due on Monday, March 17 at 5 p.m. Please submit abstracts and address questions to Dr. Konstantinos P. Nikoloutsos at Professor Paul Aspan, Associate Dean for Humanities, will deliver the opening address.
