UK Punic Network Graduate Workshop IX

CALL FOR PAPERS

University of Liverpool
10 am- 7 pm, 21 February 2019

The UK Punic Network Graduate Workshop creates an opportunity for graduate students working on Phoenician and Punic topics at Masters and Doctoral level to meet and discuss their work with students and staff with similar interests based at other universities. It has taken place in the past at Glasgow University (2009, 2011), Oxford University (2010, 2013, 2014, 2017), Durham University (2015), Bristol University (2016), and in 2019 will be hosted at the University of Liverpool

The Workshop is scheduled to take place on Friday, 22 Feburary 2019 at the University of Liverpool (exact venue tbc) 10am to 7pm.

In keeping with the Workshop’s tradition, there will be two types of presentations: one of c.20-25 minutes to report on research that is well underway or (nearly) completed, and one of c.5-10 minutes to signal work that is just beginning, or to try out specific ideas.

Those interested in presenting work should send a title and an abstract of up to 250 words by Friday, 21 December 2018,and indicate whether the contribution is a longer or shorter paper. Those interested in just attending the workshop should contact us to register by the same date, as space is limited.

This year the UK Punic/Phoenician Network Graduate Workshop will be running conjointly with the Annual Conference of the British Association for Near Eastern Archaeology (22-24 Feburary 2019).

Lunch and refreshments will be provided on the day, but we are unable to assist with travel or (if necessary) accommodation expenses.

UK-based graduate students are reminded that they can apply to theThomas Wiedemann Memorial Fund for assistance with travel expenses (http://www.thomaswiedemann.org.uk/).
