Society for Classical Studies Panel

Each year, the American Society of Papyrologists holds its Annual Meeting in early January in conjunction with the Joint Annual Meeting of the Society for Classical Studies (SCS) and the Archaeological Institute of America.

 As part of the Annual Meeting, the ASP sponsors a panel of between three and five papers on a wide range of subjects within the field of papyrology. Submissions are welcome from all interested parties; membership in the ASP is not required, although it is strongly encouraged. However, since the ASP Annual Meeting is a part of the official SCS program, speakers must be members in good standing of the SCS. Also, speakers are held to the SCS's single appearance policy, i.e. individuals can appear only once on the SCS program.

If you wish to submit a paper for the next Annual Meeting, a short abstract (600 words) should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by February 15. Abstracts are refereed anonymously, and decisions made by the end of March. 

Speakers will be asked to submit camera-ready abstracts to the SCS during the summer. Each paper is limited to 15 minutes (approximately 1875 words) and may use audio-visual equipment if necessary (this should be indicated on the abstract). 

Reminders of the deadline for abstracts will be in the SCS Newsletter in October and will also be posted on the PAPY list.
