Call for Papers: Regional Late Antiquity Consortium of the Southeast Meeting (ReLACS)
October 25-26, 2018
The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, invites paper proposals from graduate students for the annual Regional Late Antiquity Consortium of the Southeast (ReLACS) meeting to take place October 25-26, 2018 in Knoxville, Tennessee. This conference will meet for the sixth year in 2018 and is a workshop for scholars working on any aspect of Late Antiquity held on a rotating basis at the University of Tennessee, the University of Kentucky, and Vanderbilt University. This call for papers requests that graduate students share abstracts for work-in-progress papers on any topic broadly related to Late Antiquity or the early Middle Ages in any geographic region. Papers will be given in 30-minute sessions and may be read aloud or pre-circulated to allow more time for discussion.
Graduate students are invited to send an abstract or a short description of the paper (approximately 200 words) including mention of its proposed scholarly context (article, dissertation chapter, part of a book manuscript, etc.) to Gregor Kalas (firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>) by July 20, 2018.The meeting will feature a keynote presentation by Kimberly Bowes of the Classics Department at the University of Pennsylvania. There will also be faculty presentations during the meeting.
