More About the Symposium

As the concepts and practices of social justice, and the frequently negative reactions to them, have gained a deeper hold on the popular consciousness, Classicists have taken an increasing interest in the diversity of both the ancient world and of our own profession.  Recent studies advance our understanding of construction of alterity in Greco-Roman antiquity, and online publications continue to provoke us to question what effects race and gender have in general and on our own perceptions of our field.

The students of Brandeis University’s Ancient Greek and Roman Studies program invite paper proposals for their 2018 Graduate Student Conference “'Otherness' in Classics: Ancient Conceptions and Modern Receptions” to take place on April 21, 2018. We seek papers from across disciplines that interrogate the role of alterity in the ancient world, in the reception of the ancient world, and in our profession today.

We welcome submissions from graduate students from all levels and disciplines including: Anthropology, Art History, Classics, Comparative Literature, Digital Humanities, Economics, History, Jewish Studies, Near Eastern Studies, Philosophy, Political Science, Religious Studies, and Women’s Studies.

Please send your submissions, in the form of a 300 word abstract, in PDF format, before January 19th, 2018 to Presentations will be allotted 10 minutes with 5 minutes for questions. We will send notifications of acceptance or rejection no later than February 2nd, 2018.
