FAQ for Presenters

FAQ for Presenters

I would like to present a paper.  What is the process?

We typically send a call for papers/presentations in August for the upcoming academic year. If you are interested in presenting, reply to the call then or write to our coordinators to see if there are any open slots.

What kind of topics are suitable for the workshop?

R&P is loosely centered on the study of ancient Greek and Roman literature, broadly writ. Studies that emphasize reception, comparison with other cultures, and all adjacent fields are welcome.

What kind of work is acceptable for the workshop?

R&P is designed to workshop works-in-progress. Examples of the types of papers we workshop include: conference papers, articles, dissertation chapters, and dissertation proposals, and the like. If in doubt, feel free to email us, although usually we do not accept the following: term papers, reviews, and qualifying/substantial papers.

What is the format? 

Usually, there is no pre-circulated paper. Presentations run from 30-40 minutes, and the rest of the time is for questions and discussion. Presenters are encouraged to bring a handout, use A/V resources, and the like. We do not typically have respondents, but if you would like one this can be arranged.

Who can present?

We accept submissions from PhD students and faculty, as well as post-docs and the like.
