Intensive Course on Islamic Numismatics
Princeton, March 19–23, 2012
NOTE EXTENDED DEADLINE!
Thanks to a generous grant from the David A. Gardner ’69 Magic Project, the Near Eastern Studies Department at Princeton University is organizing an intensive course on Islamic numismatics.
The course will take place during the mid-term break at Princeton, starting on Monday March 19, and ending on Friday, March 23, 2012. The course is intended primarily for graduate students, both from Princeton and from other universities; applicants should have some knowledge of Arabic and of medieval Islamic history.
The instructor will be Professor Stefan Heidemann of the University of Hamburg. The content of the course will be connected with a large collection of coins held at Princeton from excavations conducted long ago at Antioch. In addition to emphasizing the value of this collection for archaeologists and historians, the intensive course will prepare students to participate in the cataloguing and study of the Islamic coins in this collection.
Application process and deadlines:
Applications must be emailed to Sarah Boyce (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the Near Eastern Studies Department at Princeton University by January 25, 2012 (we have extended the deadline to this date). The subject line of the email should read, “Application for Islamic Coins Spring Workshop.” Applications should comprise the following:
Letter of application with statement of interest
Names, positions, and email addresses of two referees
All items should be included in a single attachment, which may be a pdf.
Successful applicants will be notified before the middle of February 2012.
