The Classics Society in conjunction with the Department of Classics and Ancient History at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton will be hosting an undergraduate conference on the 16th and 17th of March, 2007. 

We are welcoming papers from all students of Classics and Classical Studies as well as from students of any discipline within the Humanities.  Topics should be related to the Classical World.  Presentations should be about ten to fifteen minutes in length. 

The 16th will consist of one afternoon session with a keynote address in the evening.  This year’s speaker will be Dr. M. Carter from the University of Brock, who will be presenting a paper entitled: “Undressed to Kill: Views of the Retiarius.”  The second and third sessions will be held on the morning and early afternoon of the 17th.  A reception will follow the keynote address, and a combined luncheon and presentation-skills workshop will follow the final session on the 17th.

The registration fee is $10, payable at the conference.

Abstracts should be around 300 words and should include a name, address, e-mail address, phone number and the university affiliation.  The deadline for submissions has been extended until February 15th, 2007, and all accepted undergraduates will be notified by February 21st, 2007. Abstracts (preferably as a word document) should be sent to Chelsey Young t33k2 AT unb.ca, as should any questions.  All undergraduates are welcome and encouraged to submit an abstract regardless of experience.
