Emerging Scholars Video Series
The NYU Center for Ancient Studies' Emerging Scholars video series pairs PhD students from U.S. and international institutions with NYU faculty members to discuss innovative approaches to the study of the ancient world and/or research that incorporates non-traditional materials and methods. We are also especially interested in highlighting the work of scholars from groups that are and have historically been marginalized and underrepresented in the fields of ancient studies and the academy at large.
The presentation format of the videos features individual PhD candidates who briefly describe their research and then engage in conversation with an NYU faculty member that positions this work in relationship to broader scholarship. These videos will be advertised as part of the Center's academic program and highlighted on our website.
To these ends, we seek proposals from students working in the ancient world, broadly conceived. We will attempt to host as many scholars as possible in the coming semesters, but our initial selection will be made with a view to covering a variety of material, geographies, periods, disciplinary approaches, and methodologies.
To submit a proposal, please send a short abstract (250 words or less) on your topic of research along with a current CV to email@example.com. We welcome new proposals on a rolling basis.
If you have any questions or need further information, please contact the Director of the Emerging Scholars Project, Hallie Franks, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
