Fall Undergraduate Research Symposium

2012 Fall Symposium

Every December and April, students present papers on their research on ancient Greece and Rome, as well as the classical tradition. This symposium provides students the opportunity to showcase their advanced research at a national professional meeting and to interact with their peers and faculty.

The Sunoikisis Undergraduate Research Symposium (SURS) will be Saturday, December 1, 2012 at the Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS) in Washington, D.C.

Students should submit abstracts online by Monday, October 1, 2012. A committee of scholars will review the abstracts.

Participants will stay at the Fairfax Hotel, located within a 5-minute walking distance of the Dupont Circle metro station and a 15-minute walk from the CHS. The CHS will assign students to double rooms, unless otherwise requested. Double rooms are $189.00/night ($94.50/student for shared rooms) and king rooms are $169.00/night.

The CHS is hosting SURS in conjunction with the Fellowships Research Symposium on Friday, November 30. Sunoikisis participants should plan to arrive on Thursday, November 29, so that they can attend the fellows’ presentations on Friday.

The CHS will provide students’ and professors’ meals on Friday and Saturday, as well as breakfast on Sunday from the hotel.

If students and their faculty sponsors are unable to come to Washington, D.C., the CHS will make arrangements for virtual participation.
