Every December and April, the Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS) in Washington, D.C. invites students to present papers on their research on ancient Greece and Rome, as well as the classical tradition. This symposium provides students the opportunity to showcase their advanced research at a national professional meeting and to interact with their peers and faculty.
The CHS hosts this event in conjunction with a symposium featuring work the post-doctoral fellows at the CHS. Students are encouraged to attend the fellows’ presentations.
This event is webcast live and recorded. Students’ abstracts and papers will be published online in the CHS Symposium E-journal (http://symposium.chs.harvard.edu).
Participants are responsible for securing their own funding for travel and lodging expenses. In the past, some students’ institutions have been able to provide funds. The CHS typically makes reservations for participants at a local hotel. In addition, the CHS provides students’ and professors’ meals on Friday and Saturday, as well as breakfast on Sunday from the hotel. Participants should plan to arrive Thursday evening and depart on Sunday morning.
If students and their faculty sponsors are unable to come to Washington, D.C., the CHS will make arrangements for them to participate remotely.
