HYBRID - Graduate and Undergraduate Research Lightning Round

April 25, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm CDT

AIA Society: Iowa

Call for Papers Deadline: March 1, 2023

We’re now accepting abstracts for an opportunity to present at our Lightning Round Research Presentations which will take place as a hybrid event in Iowa City and virtually via Zoom. This lightning round is open to undergraduate and graduate students from Iowa colleges and universities. We welcome abstracts from anthropology, archaeology, art history, classics, history, and other related disciplines that engage with archaeological research from around the globe. Abstracts (200-300 words) are due no later than March 1, 2023 and can be submitted at this site: Five successful abstracts will be selected for presentation either virtually or in person. Selected participants will be notified by March 10, 2023. All students who are selected to present will receive a one-year student membership to the AIA! We’re excited to highlight new and ongoing research from honors and MA theses, PhD dissertations, or any exceptional project in order to support young scholars and help them in their future careers! Audience members at this event will have the chance to ask our student presenters questions about their research, too, so don’t miss this event and stay tuned for the on-campus location for those wishing to attend in-person; if you wish to attend via Zoom, please register here:
