Senate House, London

Dear Colleague

May I draw your attention to the Call for Papers for next year’s Anglo-American conference of Historians which is taking Ancients and Moderns as its theme. Full details of the conference can be found at In order to ensure we get as full a range of topics and speakers as possible we have extended the deadline for the Call for Papers to 9th January 2012. Please do pass on this information and circulate conference details to anyone who might find it of interest.

The Institute’s 81st Anglo-American conference seeks to represent the full extent of work on classical receptions, welcoming not only those scholars who work on Roman, Greek and Judaeo-Christian legacies and influences, but also historians of the ancient kingdoms and empires of Asia and pre-Colombian America. Our plenary lecturers include: Paul Cartledge (Cambridge), Constanze Güthenke (Princeton), Mark Lewis (Stanford), Sanjay Subrahmanyam (UCLA) and David Womersley (Oxford).

Proposals for individual papers, panels (of up to three papers and a session chair) and roundtables are invited. Please send a half-page abstract to the IHR Events Officer at by 9th January 2012.
