International Graduate Student Conference in Modern Greek Studies

"Works in Progress: New Approaches"

Friday, May 02, 2014


The Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University announces our sixth annual International Graduate Student Conference in Modern Greek Studies.

We invite submissions from doctoral candidates at the final stages of their dissertation work.  We seek proposals for papers that draw on research relevant to the study of any aspect of modern Greece and the Hellenic world, broadly defined, 15th century AD to the present. We welcome submissions from any discipline in the humanities and social sciences. Comparative and/or interdisciplinary approaches are particularly encouraged. Papers should be in English and must not exceed 30 minutes.

The conference will bring together six to eight outstanding doctoral students, for an intensive day of presentations and intellectual exchange. Each presentation will be followed by a short response and in-depth discussion of the paper. In addition to their participation at the conference, speakers will have the opportunity to meet with Princeton faculty, graduate students and visiting scholars, and to take part in a range of activities over the course of their stay.

Please submit abstracts of no more than 500 words by Friday, February 28, 2014. Abstracts should include reference to the theoretical and/or methodological approach(es) employed . All Greek (or other foreign) words should be transliterated. Each abstract should be accompanied by (i) a cover letter (one page, maximum) reflecting on how the proposed paper relates to the dissertation-in-progress, and situating  the applicant's research within his/her academic field(s); (ii) a curriculum vitae; (iii) the applicant's contact information (name, current affiliation, postal and e-mail addresses,  tel. nos.); (iv) the names and e-mail addresses of two academic referees, including the dissertation supervisor and one other person familiar with the candidate's current research.

Receipt of all submissions will be acknowledged. Applicants will be notified by March 12, 2014 regarding acceptance. Participants will be expected to submit the full text of their papers by Friday, April 11, 2014. Papers will be pre-circulated among speakers, chairs, and respondents.

The Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies will cover participants' travel expenses to Princeton, at the lowest available rates. Speakers will be offered shared (double-occupancy) accommodation (for up to four nights), as well as some meals during their stay in Princeton.
