Eleventh International Graduate Student Conference in Modern Greek Studies

"Works in Progress: New Approaches"

Friday, May 3, 2019


The Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University announces our Eleventh Annual International Graduate Student Conference in Modern Greece and the Hellenic World, broadly defined.

We invite submissions from doctoral candidates who are enrolled as graduate students at the time of the conference and are 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 CE 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 presentations must not exceed 30 minutes.

The conference will bring together six outstanding doctoral students for a week-long visit to Princeton, culminating in 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, to access the Princeton Hellenic Collections, and to take part in a range of activities over the course of their week-long stay in Princeton (arrival Sunday, April 28 - departure Sunday, May 5).
Please submit abstracts of no more than 500 words by Friday, February 8, 2019. 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 name and e-mail address of one academic referee.
Receipt of all submissions will be acknowledged. Applicants will be notified by Monday, March 4, 2019 regarding acceptance. Participants will be expected to submit the full text of their papers by Friday, April 5, 2019. Papers will be pre-circulated among speakers, chairs, and respondents.
The Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies will cover participants' travel expenses (economy class) to Princeton, at the lowest available rates. Each speaker will be offered shared (double-occupancy, with another conference participant) accommodation for seven nights, as well as some meals during their stay in Princeton.
