ASCS 31  Proceedings
Refereed papers from the 31st
conference of the Australasian Society for Classical Studies
Edited by Neil O’Sullivan
These papers were originally presented at the 31st conference
of the Australasian Society for
Classical Studies, convened by my colleague, Dr Lara
O'Sullivan, and held in Perth at the University of Western
Australia, 2-5 February 2010. ASCS is the peak body in
Australasia for the professional study of the classical world,
and its conference is the largest annual meeting in the region
for the dissemination of new research in this very international
field. The Discipline Group of Classics and Ancient History at
UWA wishes to acknowledge the generous contribution of the UWA
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Alan Robson, in support of this event.
As the programme shows, ASCS 31 featured 80 papers. This year, for
the first time, a plan was formulated to publish its papers and
so make their findings available to a much wider audience.
Speakers were invited to submit their work, which was then
subjected to independent and expert anonymous peer review. The
papers presented here have all passed this review process and
been recommended for publication. I take this opportunity to
thank once more the referees for the generous donation of their
time and expertise.
Access to these refereed papers is free, but the copyright of all
material remains with the individual authors unless otherwise
