By Katherine Panagakos on January 18, 2021.

Eta Sigma Phi, the national honorary society for classical studies, invites papers from undergraduate for presentation at the 154th Annual Meeting of the Society of Classical Studies. The SCS will meet from January 5-8, 2023 in New Orleans, LA.

Papers may deal with any aspect of the ancient Greek and Roman world (e.g., literature, art, archaeology, history, religion, philosophy) or with the reception of classical cultures in modern times. Eta Sigma Phi is particularly interested in offering a variety of well-researched topics that represent the emerging interests of the newest members of the discipline. An established scholar will be invited to serve as respondent to the papers.

The honorary society hopes that this panel will serve as a bridge between undergraduate students and the Society for Classical Studies, not just by giving the students an opportunity to experience an SCS meeting and to share their views with professional classicists, but also by introducing those professionals to some of the most talented and promising students of the next generation.

Any student enrolled full-time in an undergraduate program at an accredited college or university during the academic year 2020-2021 is eligible to submit a paper. Authors interested in proposing a paper for the panel should submit the entire paper along with an abstract (of 650 words or less) as a pdf attachment via the Eta Sigma Phi website (  The paper must be read aloud at a moderate pace in 20 minutes, so it should be no longer than ten double-spaced pages, excluding endnotes and bibliography. The receipt deadline for papers and accompanying documents is March 1, 2022.

Each submission will be evaluated anonymously by several scholars selected by Eta Sigma Phi. Students who submit papers for the panel must be members of the SCS. NB: In order to defray the cost of attendance at the meeting, Eta Sigma Phi will reimburse student panelists for their membership and registration fees. Travel costs are the responsibility of the student and/or the home institution.
