The 8-10 of May will be held in the Faculty of Geography and History of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid the 12th Encounter of young researchers in Ancient History (Encuentro de Jóvenes Investigadores de Historia Antigua: EJHIA). This event aims to build a personal and professional network between grad and PhD students, post doctoral and early career researchers whose main interest lie in the study of Ancient History and neighbouring areas, such as archaeology, philology, epigraphy or numismatics.
There will be two kinds of sessions: three Presentation sessions and three Round tables. The Presentation sessions are mostly addressed at doctoral students who want to share their project proposals and their theoretical and methodological perspectives on their fields of study. The main aim of these sessions is not to contribute with original research results to this event, but to establish a common dialogue between early career researchers concerning their theoretical and methodological perspectives. Each presentation will last a maximum of 15 minutes, and after each session there will be a common debate between all the participants and interested assistants.
Each one of the three Round tables deals with a particular topic and is directed by a recognised expert in these particular fields of study. The Round tables are mostly addressed to advanced doctoral students who are finishing their thesis and to post-doctoral and early career researchers. The interventions in the round tables are limited to 20 minutes, and wide time will be provided for further debate between the participants, the director of the round table and the general public. The three round tables of this year will be:
a) “Citizenship and identity in ancient societies” (directed by Donato Fasolini, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore)
b) “Myths, worldviews and ritual practices in Ancient Mediterranean” (directed by Carmen Rueda, Universidad de Jaén)
c) “Divine royalty” (directed by Fernando Lozano, Universidad de Sevilla)
Up to five travel grants will be granted. These will consist in 80 € for travelling expenses and the free registration in the encounter. For more detailed information, please visit our webpage:
