CLASSICAL ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE 2022 (SWANSEA UNIVERSITY)

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF DATE: 8–11 April 2022.

We have decided to rearrange the date of the Classical Association Annual Conference that is to be held in Swansea in April 2022, in order to make the conference more inclusive and open to a wider number of participants. It will now be held between Friday 8th and Monday 11th April, during the Easter holidays for more schools and universities than before. The due date for abstracts and panel proposals will not change: please send to [email protected] by 31 August 2021.

While registration and an opening event will take place on the Friday, the conference panels are likely to begin on the Saturday.

The conference which we are planning will, we envisage, be a hybrid affair, so as to widen participation to include those who might not be able or willing to travel. This accords with the Classical Association’s environmental policy and the conference’s environmental objectives, since it will allow speakers and delegates not based in the UK to attend the conference remotely.

We are mindful of all potential COVID-19-related restrictions and measures, and we will be directed by the protocols of Swansea University and by the Welsh and UK governments.

It is our ambition that panels, including those submitted, should have at least two members present physically in Swansea at the conference. That said, we are hoping to be running paper presentations as Zoom webinars.

We ask for your patience as we work towards this exciting new approach to running an international conference. More information to follow as we have it.
