Summer Program in Applied Palaeography
American Academy in Rome
4 June- 23 July 2003
The American Academy in Rome is pleased to host a seven-week program in Applied Palaeography, open to qualified graduate students and other scholars. The program offers an intensive introduction to Latin palaeography from Roman antiquity through the European Renaissance and considers as well the impact of printing on western graphic culture, the transmission of classical texts, and the history of palaeography as a discipline. This program is made possible through the generosity of James Ackerman, FAAR'52, RAAR'65,'70,'75,'80, who designated a portion of his 2001 Balzan Prize, awarded by the International Balzan Foundation, for the development of this program intended for young scholars.
Successful participants will demonstrate a command of language, particularly Latin and Italian, as well as proven accomplishments in this area of research. Proficiency in Greek and Hebrew will be taken into consideration. Those individuals chosen to participate in this program will receive full scholarships.
Applications must be postmarked by February 1, 2003 and should be sent to the address below. An application consists of a CV (up to two pages), project description of no more than 1200 words and one letter of recommendation. Please specify degree of language competency in Latin. For further information please contact Christopher Celenza or Ingrid Rowland (firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit the Academy’s website.
