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

Submissions are invited 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 (including the broader Hellenic world), 15th century to the present. We welcome submissions from any discipline in the humanities and social sciences. Comparative and/or interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged. Papers should be in English, and must not exceed 30 minutes. 

Please submit abstracts of no more than 500 words, by Friday March 22, 2013. The abstracts should introduce the research question, referring to the theoretical and methodological approach in a direct and analytical manner. All Greek words should be transliterated. Each abstract should be accompanied by a cover letter, including (i) a curriculum vitae; (ii) a brief statement how the proposed paper connects with the dissertation-in-progress; (iii) the applicant's contact details (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. The applicants will be notified by April 1, 2013, whether their submissions have been accepted. Participants will be expected to submit the full text of their papers by April 26, 2013. Papers will be pre-circulated among conference speakers, chairs, and respondents. 

The Center for Hellenic Studies will cover participants' travel expenses to Princeton, and will offer shared (double-occupancy) accommodation (up to four nights), as well as some meals on the days of the conference.
