Abstract submissions are invited for the second Annual Meeting of Postgraduates in Hellenic Or Roman Antiquities and Egyptology (AMPHORAE), to be held at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, from Wednesday, 11 July until Friday, 13 July, 2012. This conference has run successfully for the last five years as AMPHORA I, II, III, IV; and in 2011 as AMPHORAE V. AMPHORAE is a conference designed for Postgraduate and Honours students from Australia and New Zealand to interact and share their current work among peers in a friendly and stimulating environment. We also invite graduate students worldwide to submit an abstract.

The theme of this year’s conference, “Continuity and Change: Identity in the Ancient World”, is intended to accommodate research from (but not limited to) all of the fields of Classical Philology, Classical Art and Literature, Ancient History, Archaeology, Late Antique Studies, and all other areas of Ancient World Studies. Abstracts addressing any interpretation of the topic are welcome.

Abstract submissions of 200-300 words for papers of 20 minutes duration are requested. Please send your submissions and a brief biography by Friday, 1 June to amphoraevi@gmail.com. If you would like to attend the conference, but will not be presenting a paper, please inform us of your attendance, as well as any dietary requirements, by Monday, June 11.

Conference registration is free but there will be a fee to attend the conference dinner on the Friday evening. If you are interested in attending the dinner, more details will be available shortly on our website. Small bursaries will also be available (upon application) for students who will be travelling from Australia.
