The 2nd North American Congress of Greek and Latin Epigraphy
January 4-5, 2016 (University of California, Berkeley)
The second North American Congress of Greek and Latin Epigraphy will be held on Monday and Tuesday, January 4-5, 2016, at the University of California, Berkeley, under the aegis of the American Society of Greek and Latin Epigraphy (ASGLE), and with support from the Aleshire Center for the Study of Greek Epigraphy, the Departments of Classics and History at UC Berkeley, ASGLE, the Association Internationale d’Épigraphie Grecque et Latine (AIEGL), and Brill Publishers.
The congress, to be held in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America and the Society for Classical Studies in San Francisco, CA (Wednesday through Saturday, January 6-9, 2016), will include several parallel sessions (at least one of which will be devoted to new texts), two plenary sessions, and two keynote addresses; there will also be space in the program for a poster session. It is our intention to submit the conference proceedings for publication in the series Brill Studies in Greek and Roman Epigraphy, which published the proceedings of the first congress (http://www.brill.com/products/book/ancient-documents-and-their-contexts).
The congress organizing committee is pleased to invite individual abstracts for the parallel sessions (for papers of 20 minutes) and for the poster session. Abstracts of no more than 1 page should be submitted by email attachment in PDF or Word document form by Friday, March 20, 2015 to the congress email address at NACGLE2016@gmail.com. Please indicate at the end of your abstract whether or not you are willing to submit your paper or poster for inclusion in the published volume. Abstracts will be reviewed by the members of the congress organizing committee, and the results of the review process will be made known to potential participants no later than April 20, 2015.
