Undergraduate Research Symposium

The Sunoikisis Undergraduate Research Symposium (SURS) will be Friday, April 29, 2011 at the Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS) in Washington, D.C.  The symposium provides students the opportunity to present their advanced research on ancient Greece and Rome, as well as the Classical Tradition, at a national professional meeting and to interact with their peers and faculty.

Participants will stay at the Churchill Hotel (1914 Connecticut Ave., NW).  The CHS has negotiated a rate of $149/night with internet access included.

Students should submit abstracts at http://chs.surs.questionpro.com/ by Friday, February 18, 2011.  If students and their faculty sponsors are unable to come to Washington, D.C., the CHS will make arrangements for virtual participation.

The CHS is hosting SURS in conjunction with the Fellowships Research Symposium on Saturday, April 30.  Sunoikisis participants are invited and encouraged to attend the fellows’ presentations on Saturday.
