Every spring, the Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS) in Washington, D.C. invites students to present their research on ancient Greece and Rome, as well as the classical tradition. The annual symposium provides students the opportunity to interact with their peers and faculty at a national meeting.
Students’ papers and videos of their presentations are published in the online Sunoikisis Undergraduate Research Journal (ISSN 2373-5937). Because the papers begin and evolve in a digital medium, they can incorporate a wide variety of materials, including images, videos, links to other online resources, and other types of data. The students’ faculty mentors serve as the editorial board of the e-journal.
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 dinner on Friday night, all meals on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday morning at the hotel. Participants should plan to arrive Friday afternoon 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.
