CFP Emerging Scholars — NYU Center for Ancient Studies


The NYU Center for Ancient Studies
welcomes proposals for the
Emerging Scholars Series  

The Emerging Scholars video series pairs PhD students from U.S. and international institutions with NYU faculty members to discuss innovative approaches to the study of the ancient world and/or research that incorporates non-traditional materials and methods. We are also especially interested in highlighting the work of scholars from groups that are and have historically been marginalized and underrepresented in the fields of ancient studies and the academy at large.

The presentation format of the videos features individual PhD candidates who briefly describe their research and then engage in conversation with an NYU faculty member that positions this work in relation to broader scholarship. These videos will be advertised as part of the Center’s academic program and highlighted on our website

To these ends, we seek proposals from students working in the ancient world, broadly conceived. In order to submit a proposal, please send a short abstract (250 words or less) on your topic of research along with a current CV to We welcome new proposals on a rolling basis.
