The Maritime Archaeology Graduate Symposium (MAGS) was first established in 2018 to allow young researchers at the Master, PhD, and early post-doctoral stages to engage with conference attendance and paper presentation in front of an audience composed of peers and like-minded scholars. The Steering and Organizing Committees are aware of and sensitive to the fact that, at an early career stage, conference participation can be a challenging experience. The Symposium aims to offer a platform where young scholars, sometimes for the first time, can experience a professional academic setting in a friendly environment structured along the lines of international conferences.
Sponsored by the Honor Frost Foundation (HFF) and organized by early career researchers of the University of Cyprus and the Cyprus Institute, the 5th MAGS invites the next generation of maritime archaeology scholars to gather on the island of Cyprus. The Symposium will take place over two days (2-3 March 2023) at the premises of the University of Cyprus in Nicosia. In addition to paper sessions, MAGS will include related academic and social events, which will be communicated in due time within the MAGS 2023 Programme.
The symposium aims to attract scholars of maritime archaeology and related sub-disciplines, whose studies focus on the Mediterranean region. Furthermore, as this is the first time that MAGS will be held in one of the countries of the HFF region, we particularly encourage participation from students and young scholars of the remit. We believe that MAGS 2023 will offer a great opportunity to meet, exchange ideas and network, creating opportunities for collaboration.
Abstracts should be kept in the range of 250-300 words and should include the applicant’s name, email, and institutional affiliation. Submissions should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org by the 31st of December 2022.
The Honor Frost Foundation is generously offering four bursaries to postgraduate students from the eastern Mediterranean region (Cyprus, Egypt, Lebanon and Syria) wishing to present or attend MAGS 2023. Priority will be given to those presenting a paper. To apply, please complete the bursary application form by the 31st of December 2022. https://honorfrostfoundation.org/2022/11/08/mags-2023/
