The American Society of Papyrologists invites proposals for papers for a panel on “Culture and Society in Greek, Roman, and Early Byzantine Egypt” for the 2009 APA in Philadelphia, January 8-11.

(b) they must investigate aspects of the history, cultures, textual productions, or material culture of Egypt from the Hellenistic to the early Arab period.

Submissions from scholars at both junior and senior levels are welcome. Prospective speakers must be members in good standing of the APA.

Please send abstracts to Raffaella Cribiore, rc141 AT columbia.edu, by February 8, 2008. Abstracts should not exceed 600 words (one single-spaced page) and should not include the author’s name to ensure anonymous referral.
