 Call for Papers

for presentation at the the eighty-sixth anniversary meeting of the Southern Section of

the Classical Association of the Middle West and South,

November 2-4, 2006,

at the University of Memphis Holiday Inn in Memphis, Tennessee,

at the invitation of Rhodes College,

 in cooperation with Hendrix College, Memphis City Schools, St. Mary's Episcopal School, Shelby County Schools, The University of Memphis, and The University of Mississippi

At the meeting of the Southern Section of CAMWS, Eta Sigma Phi will sponsor a panel of papers presented by undergraduate members of Eta Sigma Phi.  Members who will be undergraduates in the fall (or who graduated in the spring of 2006) are invited to submit papers for consideration, and five or six papers will be selected for presentation. 

            The papers will be judged anonymously, and the students whose papers are selected for reading will receive $100 each to help cover expenses of attending the meeting.  They will also be given a one-year membership in CAMWS.  Before submitting a paper, each student should ensure that he or she will be able to obtain the additional funds—either personally or through the institution, department, or chapter—to attend the meeting.


1.  Papers should deal with some aspect of classical civilization or language.  (Papers written for classes are acceptable.)

2.  Papers should be typed, double-spaced, and no longer than 15 minutes in length, or 20 minutes if audio-visuals are part of the presentation. Electronic submissions are encouraged.

3.  The names of the authors should not be on the papers.

4.  Each submission should contain a cover sheet with the author’s name, address, phone number, e-mail address, chapter, and institution.  Those who will not be at their institutions in June should also include summer information.

Deadline for receipt of papers:  May 1, 2006
