Northwest Undergraduate Conference on the Ancient World

CANCELED | The Fifteenth Annual Northwest Undergraduate Conference on the Ancient World

We regret to announce the cancellation of this event due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, in accordance with current public health recommendations to avoid unnecessary travel and large-group gatherings.

We look forward to resuming next year.

 

 

The Department of Classical Studies at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon, is hosting a one-day undergraduate conference. We envision this conference as an opportunity for talented undergraduates to present their work, for example a BA thesis or outstanding seminar paper, in a 15-minute talk to an audience of undergraduates and their faculty mentors. Papers are welcome in any area of ancient studies, including language and literature, religion, history, philosophy, and material culture.

A catered buffet breakfast and lunch will be provided to all participants, and audio-visual facilities will be available.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION SUSPENDED AT THIS TIME. 

Interested students should send an abstract of their paper electronically to the conference organizer, Professor Robert Chenault (rchenaul@willamette.edu). The abstract should provide the following information: name, email address, name and email of the supporting faculty member, any audio-visual needs (PowerPoint, video, slide projector), title of the talk, and 300-word description of the talk. Conference acceptances will be emailed within a few days after the deadline.

Further information will be posted on the website of the Willamette University Department of Classical Studies (http://www.willamette.edu/cla/classics/conference/index.php), or you may contact the conference organizer, Professor Robert Chenault.

A map of the campus and additional directions can be found in the "About Willamette" section.
