Casting Off Shadows: Hellenistic Poetry Beyond Callimachean Aesthetics

Thanks to the generosity of the Classical Association, we are able to offer a number of substantial bursaries to support graduates in attending ‘Casting Off Shadows’ in Cambridge this September. These bursaries can be used to cover the conference fee, accommodation and travel within the UK, but not the conference dinner.

Please note the short application window—this is to ensure successful applicants can secure accommodation.

To apply for a graduate bursary, please send to by midday on Saturday 30th July 2016:

  • a one-page CV,
  • a brief explanation of how your research would benefit from attendance at the conference, and
  • a breakdown of the costs you are requesting (including whether you would like to book accommodation in Pembroke college).

Depending on the number of applications, we will offer partial or full bursaries. Successful applicants will be contacted on Sunday to ensure we can make accommodation bookings where necessary.
