The NYU Center for Ancient Studies is seeking to engage the work of current PhD candidates as part of a new Emerging Scholars video presentation series, beginning in spring 2021. In this series, we aim to showcase research that takes innovative approaches to the study of the ancient world or that incorporates non-traditional materials and/or methods. We are also especially interested in highlighting the work of scholars from groups that are and have historically been marginalized and underrepresented in the fields of ancient studies and the academy at large.

The presentation format of the videos will feature individual PhD candidates who briefly describe their research and then engage in conversation with an NYU faculty member that positions this work in relationship to broader scholarship. These videos will be advertised as part of the Center's academic program and highlighted on our website.  

To these ends, we seek proposals from students working in the ancient world, broadly conceived. We will attempt to host as many scholars as possible in the coming semesters, but our initial selection will be made with a view to covering a variety of material, geographies, periods, disciplinary approaches, and methodologies.

To submit a proposal, please send a short abstract (250 words or less) on your topic of research along with a current CV to: The deadline for the current submission cycle is Friday, April 30, 2021.   If you have any questions or need further information, please contact the Director of the Center for Ancient Studies:
