Call For Papers - Spring 2015

The Late Antique and Medieval Postgraduate Society (LAMPS) is now looking for postgraduate students to present their research at our weekly Monday meetings in the Spring 2015 semester.
LAMPS aims to provide a fun and engaging forum for cross-disciplinary discussions that focus on the Late Antique and Medieval periods. Proposals on the study of these time periods as well as topics pertaining to the reception and perception of the Late Antique and Medieval periods from later sources are all welcome. Students from all disciplines, and at any stage of their research are welcome to submit papers. 
For the Spring 2014 semester, LAMPS requests that all submissions explore the theme of Creation. Possible paper topics include but are not limited to: the creation of buildings, objects or texts, as well as creation as a theme and the creation of ideas. The theme is open to other interpretations and can be taken in any direction of the individual’s choosing.
Presentations should be around 20 minutes and are accompanied by 10 to 15 minutes of discussion. This opportunity provides postgraduate students not only a chance to hone their presentation skills, but it also offers valuable peer support. If you are interested in applying please send a 250 word abstract along with your details and a brief introductory statement about yourself to by the 20th of December. Lectures will take place on Mondays between January 12th and March 30th, so please let us know about any potential scheduling conflicts.
