Faculty of Classics

 

Postdoc Work-in-Progress Seminars

The PostDoc Work-in-Progress Seminars (PWiPS) will be held fortnightly on Friday lunchtimes (12:00–1:30) over Zoom. Each speaker will pre-circulate a piece of writing around a week in advance, which they will briefly introduce at the beginning of the session. The majority of the seminar will then be used to discuss and offer feedback on the work.

The seminar is intended for the Classics postdoc community in the first instance, interpreted broadly to encompass all Early Career Researchers, including individual/project postdocs, JRFs, teaching associates, temporary lecturers, recent PhD alumni. By default, work will only be circulated to and discussed by the Classics postdoc community, but each speaker can invite along and share their work with other members of the Faculty/University. If you are not a Classics Postdoc but would like to attend a specific session, please contact the relevant speaker for an invitation and copy of their work.

For further information, or to express interest in presenting, please contact the seminar co-convenors: Dr Max Leventhal (ml649@cam.ac.uk) and Dr Talitha Kearey (tezk2@cam.ac.uk).
