Panels will be held in Collingwood College and Grey College, and plenary lectures in the Arnold Wolfendale theatre of the Calman Centre, on the Science site of the University. The conference dinner will take place at the Radisson Hotel, on the banks of the river Wear. The conference will be organised in seven academic sessions with parallel papers, two plenary lectures and the Presidential Address. As in previous years, there will also be receptions, entertainments and excursions to sites of interest in the local area. Participants will be offered a choice of accommodation in Collingwood College, the Business School, and the Marriott Hotel, Durham. We welcome proposals for papers (20 minutes long followed by discussion) and coordinated panels (comprising either 3 or 4 papers) from academic staff, graduate students, and school teachers on the topics suggested below, or on any aspect of the classical world. We are keen to encourage papers from a broad range of classical, historical, and archaeological perspectives.
