ASCSA: The American School of Classical Studies at Athens conducts a program volunteers wishing to participate in the archaeological excavations of the Athenian Agora during summer 2024. Approximately fifteen to twenty-five volunteers are chosen on the basis of academic qualifications and previous archaeological field experience. Both advanced undergraduate students and graduate students are eligible, although priority is given to graduate students preparing for careers in classical archaeology. Open to all nationalities DEADLINE: Dec. 9.
Announcement: The NYU Center for Ancient Studies is seeking to engage the work of current PhD candidates as part of our second round of video presentations in the Emerging Scholars Series. In this series, we aim to showcase research that takes innovative approaches to the study of the ancient world broadly conceived or that incorporates non-traditional materials and/or methods. We are also especially interested in highlighting the work of scholars from groups that are or have been historically marginalized and underrepresented in the field of ancient studies and in the academy at large.
DEADLINE: MAY 31 This year's CANE Summer Institute will be held July 10-15, simultaneously in person at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, with the support of the Brown University Department of Classics, and online via Zoom. For CSI's 40th anniversary, this year's theme is "Classical antiquity": a global phenomenon in local contexts. Faculty hailing from public and private educational institutions from all six New England states and beyond, representing disciplines across the humanities, will lead institute participants in a week of mini-courses, professional development workshops, and Greek and Latin reading groups, and deliver research talks as part of the week's free public lecture series, which take us to ancient and modern Egypt, England, Gandhara, Germany, North Africa, Numidia, Ireland, Italy, Syria, the Ukraine-Russia War, and the United States. Visit caneweb.org/csi. CSI is also launching a new intensive writing workshop designed expressly for graduate students who wish to revise a conference presentation for publication… The application for this workshop is available at caneweb.org/csi. CANE is launching a tuition grant program for first-generation undergraduate students (Class of 2013 to current), early-career educators (in the first 10 years, at any level), and graduate students and contingent faculty who do not have access to internal funding. Questions? Email Meredith Safran, Director of the CANE Summer Institute <firstname.lastname@example.org>
