San Antonio, TX
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 nmd5 AT cornell.edu. 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.
