The Department of Classics, History and Archaeology at Birkbeck College at University of London in partnership with the UCL department of History is pleased to be hosting the Annual Meeting of UK and Eire Postgraduates in Ancient History (AMPAH) in March 2018. The annual meeting will take place at the University of London on Saturday the 17th March, 2018.

AMPAH 2018 invites papers from postgraduate students of Ancient History, including the history and historiography of Classical Greece and Rome, the ancient Near East and Egypt, Late Antiquity and the Byzantine Empire, and of comparable periods of Asian, African, and Central-South American history.

Papers should be no more than 20 minutes in length, and will be followed by 5 minutes of questions and discussion. Please send abstracts about 300 words via email to [email protected] by Friday 15th December 2017. We will accept submissions until 19:00 on this date and the deadline will be strictly enforced. Please clearly indicate in the body of the email itself and on the abstract attachment the following information: your name, email address, departmental and university affiliation, and status.

AMPAH has traditionally been an inclusive conference where postgraduates and staff in Ancient History network and share ideas in an informal environment. Decision emails will be sent out by Friday 12th January 2018. If you have any general enquiries regarding AMPAH 2018, please do not hesitate to e-mail us: [email protected]

Information regarding AMPAH registration will be sent out in late January of 2018. Registration will be free and refreshments and lunch will be provided. To accommodate same-day travel to London for all UK and Eire-based postgraduates, AMPAH’s programme will start at 10:00.
