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 next symposium will be Saturday, December 7, 2013*. Students should submit abstracts via the online application by Tuesday, October 1, 2013. A committee of scholars will review the abstracts.

This event will be viewable as a live webcast and will be recorded. Students’ abstracts and papers will be published online in the CHS Symposium E-journal (http://symposium.chs.harvard.edu).

*Symposium participants should plan to arrive on Thursday, December 5.
