UWICAH Postgraduate Conference 2015

21/11/2015, 9:30 - 17:00


We are delighted to announce that the third annual UWICAH postgraduate Classics & Ancient History conference will be taking place at Cardiff University on Saturday 21st November, 2015. Talks will be given by staff and postgraduate students of Classics, Ancient History, Ancient religions, Archaeology of the Ancient World, and Early Christian studies.

The venue is the charming Grade II-listed Bute Building in the civic centre of Cardiff, the capital city of Wales. It is a friendly and welcoming city, with numerous hotels, bars, restaurants and attractions to visitors. Cardiff also has strong transport links with the rest of Britain and Europe by road (M4), sea, air and rail. Public transport is easily available from London by rail from Paddington Station or coach service (National Express or Megabus) from Victoria Station. As well as the London airports, the Cardiff and Bristol international airports provide access to the city.

UWICAH (The Universities in Wales Institute of Classics and Ancient History) was founded to promote the study of Classics and Ancient History in Wales. The postgraduate conferences of the previous few years have been great successes in this regard, and we hope for a high turnout of postgraduates studying at institutions in Wales. However, we also encourage attendance from postgraduates from all institutions.

UWICAH’s strength is the opportunity it gives for networking and showcasing the breadth of research of postgraduate students. To best facilitate this, the conference has no main overarching theme, instead providing the opportunity for postgraduates to share their ongoing research.

The registration deadline is 9th November.

There is no bursary scheme in operation for this conference, so postgraduate delegates are encouraged to seek assistance from their home institutions or from external bodies. A list of accommodation, eateries and attractions as well as a draft conference programme and maps of Cardiff and the University campus will be available soon, and will be emailed to all registered delegates.

You can keep in contact or direct questions via Twitter @UWICAHpostgrad #UWICAH15 or UWICAH15@gmail.com.

The organising committee are all doctoral research students in Ancient History at the Cardiff University School of History, Archaeology and Religion. They are David ColwillIoan McAvoyChiara Strazzulla and Ulriika Vihervalli.
