Classical Association of the Canadian West 2013

Edmonton, March 22-24, 2013.

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 1er octobre 2012

 

The Classical Association of the Canadian West invites proposals for papers for its annual conference, to be held in Edmonton on March 22-24, 2013. Papers on any topic within Classics will be considered, but we particularly encourage paper- and session-proposals on topics which, in the opinion of the presenters, are on the margins of our discipline. Presenters are free to choose which ‘margins' those are. Besides topics at the chronological or geographical edges of Classical Antiquity, one could think of marginally preserved materials (e.g. wooden objects), the margins of society (e.g. transhumant shepherds), regional languages, little-read ancient texts (e.g. papyri), the margins of scholarship (e.g. historical fiction) or, indeed, scholarship in the margin (marginalia), to name a few possibilities. Exploring such topics will not only broaden our horizons, but also, we hope, bring into focus internalized boundaries that separate the marginal from the mainstream in our field. That in turn, we trust, will inspire debate on the scope of our discipline, both in the margins of this conference and beyond.

 

 

We welcome proposals from scholars and graduate students of all nationalities. We also invite undergraduates to submit abstracts for a special undergraduate session in the afternoon of March 22nd. At this session, undergraduate students will present papers, selected through a standard peer-review process. After the session, the presenters will get individual feedback and suggestions from a faculty member of the host department.

Abstracts for individual papers should not exceed 400 words and may be submitted to Steven Hijmans ( Cette adresse email est protégée contre les robots des spammeurs, vous devez activer Javascript pour la voir. ) no later than October 1st, 2012. All paper proposals will be peer-reviewed after the deadline, and the decisions will be communicated by October 15th.

Proposals for panel-sessions of three to five papers should not exceed 600 words and may be submitted to Steven Hijmans, Cette adresse email est protégée contre les robots des spammeurs, vous devez activer Javascript pour la voir. , no later than September 15th, 2012. Panel-session proposals will be peer reviewed as soon as they are received, and proposers will receive notification within 30 days.
