• ROMARCH: 2016-17 American School of Classical Studies at Athens Programs and Fellowships


    The American School of Classical Studies at Athens, one of America’s most distinguished centers devoted to advanced teaching and research, was founded in 1881 to provide American graduate students and scholars a base for their studies in the history and civilization of the Greek world. Today, over 130 years later, it is still a teaching institution, providing graduate students a unique opportunity to study firsthand the sites and monuments of Greece. The School is also a superb resource for senior scholars pursuing research in many fields ranging from prehistoric to modern Greece, thanks to its internationally renowned libraries, the Blegen, focusing on all aspects of Greece from its earliest prehistory to late antiquity, and the Gennadius, which concentrates on the Greek world after the end of antiquity.
    Membership application to the ASCSA must be made online at http://www.ascsa.edu.gr at the same time you apply to any outside funding organization for work at the School.

  • ROMARCH: Conference on ‘Salamis of Cyprus’, 21-23 May 2015, University of Cyprus

    “Salamis of Cyprus, History and Archaeology from the Earliest Times to the End of Antiquity”

    The Department of History and Archaeology of the University of Cyprus and the Department of Antiquities are organizing a conference entitled “Salamis of Cyprus, History and Archaeology from the Earliest Times to the End of Antiquity”. The conference will take place in the Main Hall of the University of Cyprus (75 Kallipoleos Ave.) on the 21st to 23rd May 2015.

    Salamis, with its pivotal setting for encounters and exchanges between the Aegean and the Middle East, has played a key role in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Aegean. This is the perspective under which the participants of this conference will be invited to share their recent research and insights on this part of the history and archaeology of Cyprus.

    The last time the city of Salamis was the object of a conference was in 1978. The conference took place in Lyon. It has unfortunately not been the topic of extensive research and publications ever since.

    The objective of the conference is to put Salamis of Cyprus back on the agenda of an international scientific discussion, presenting new evidence and scientific studies, which will address both its history and its archaeology, while bringing again to light the multicultural nature of the ancient history of the island through its most important archaeological site, Ancient Salamis.

    The conference is open to the public.
