closing date for receipt of the ‘Abstract
9th Biennial PhD Symposium on Contemporary Greece
and Cyprus is fast approaching (19 February), we would most appreciate if you were able to
share this email amongst your contacts.
The Hellenic Observatory
will be hosting the Symposium on Saturday on 15th June 2019. The core aim of the Symposium is to provide a platform for exchange and to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and ideas between young scholars currently undertaking research on Greece and
Cyprus. All applicants accepted to give papers will be eligible for travel
grants due to the generous support of the A.G. Leventis Foundation.
The Symposium is an initiative that the Hellenic Observatory undertook in 2003 and we are pleased that we have been able
to sustain and develop it. Over the years the Symposia have attracted PhD students from many different countries, facilitating their contact and collaboration with their peers. The PhD Symposium intends to help graduate research students to overcome the academic
isolation associated to PhD research, to ‘try’ their ideas and findings on wider audiences, and to establish new collaborative links across disciplines. Additionally, it enables young researchers to engage with a wider academic community, including academic
members of staff at the LSE, and a number of other distinguished scholars who participate as discussants at the Symposium.
