110th Meeting of CAMWS - Call for Papers

The 110th Annual Meeting of the Classical Association of the Middle West and South will be held Wednesday-Saturday, April 2-5, 2014 in Waco, Texas, at the Hilton Waco and Courtyard by Marriott Hotels, at the invitation of Baylor University. Proposals for workshops and individual papers on any aspect of Graeco-Roman antiquity are now being accepted. Especially welcome are submissions likely to be of broad interest, including those concerned with pedagogy. Workshops, especially those on pedagogical and performative topics, are especially welcome. Teachers and students at any level of instruction (K-12, college, or university) may submit proposals, but papers written by undergraduates will be evaluated separately from the rest and assigned to sessions designated for undergraduate papers.

All proposals for workshops and individual papers must be received by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, September 27, 2013. (The deadline for submitting panel proposals has passed.) All proposals for panels, workshops and individual papers will be judged anonymously by the Program Committee, chaired by CAMWS President Monica Cyrino.

An individual may deliver no more than one paper at the meeting and may submit no more than one abstract. A person is free to organize a panel or workshop in addition to presenting a paper (whether in his/her own panel or in another session). Anyone presenting on a panel or submitting a proposal for an individual paper at CAMWS 2014 cannot also be a presenter in a workshop.

All abstracts must be double-spaced and typed in 12-point Times New Roman font. Indent first lines of paragraphs, set a 1-inch margin on all sides, and center the title at the top of the page. Enter any non-Roman text using Unicode. Use abbreviated (author-date) citations; at the end of each abstract or panel description provide a list of works cited. The combined length of the abstract (or panel/workshop description) and its list of works cited must not exceed 800 words. Abstracts for workshops should describe the general goals of the workshop, the roles played by each presenter and expectations of the audience. Authors of abstracts and organizers of panels/workshops are not to be identified by name anywhere in their proposals.

The maximum time allotted for an individual paper is 15 minutes. A workshop can be either sixty or ninety minutes in length. Requests for audio-visual equipment must be made at the time the abstract is submitted. Because LCD projectors are expensive to rent, please request them only when absolutely necessary. Individuals must provide their own laptop computers and adapter cables. CAMWS cannot provide access to the internet during presentations.

Please submit all proposals electronically at http://www.camws.org/membership/abstractform.php for individual papers and for workshop proposals at http://www.camws.org/membership/workshop.php. If, for some reason, electronic submission is not possible, please contact the CAMWS office at the address below.

All presenters and organizers are required to be members of CAMWS at the time they submit their abstracts. Membership dues may be paid at http://www.camws.org/membership/memberinfo.php by credit card ($3.00 processing fee) or by mailing a check along with a membership form to CAMWS, Department of Classics, Monmouth College, 700 E. Broadway, Monmouth, IL 61462 (office 309-457-2284; fax 815-346-2565; camws@camws.org). Please keep in mind that submission of an abstract is a commitment to present the paper in person in Waco.
