• ROMARCH: American Academy in Rome Summer School in Roman Pottery 2015

    AAR Summer Program in Roman Pottery, 2010

    The Howard Comfort, FAAR’29, Summer School in Roman Pottery

    The Howard Comfort FAAR ’29 Summer School in Roman Pottery at the American Academy in Rome is accepting applications for its session to be held for five weeks from 22 June to 24 July 2015.

    Potential candidates should be aware that this program is now offered every two years and will be repeated in 2017.

    The program’s aim is first to introduce the participants to the study of Roman pottery and then for them to apply their knowledge under the guidance of the director and the assistant in processing a ceramic assemblage, which the participants may work up for publication.

    It is assumed that the participants will have some grounding in classical studies (and hopefully archaeology) but not specifically in pottery studies. The program is directed toward graduate students, as well as advanced undergraduates and practising archaeologists. The program is open to all citizens of any country with a sufficient knowledge of  English, which will be the working language.

  • ROMARCH: Programs and Fellowships at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens 2015-16

    AVAILABLE at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens:

    STUDY IN GREECE;
    ASCSA 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.

    Participants in the program join AAP in its 25th campaign year. The Project involves excavation at the site of Malloura (occupied from the Geometric through Ottoman periods – 8th century B.C. to 19th century A.D.) and field survey of the surrounding valley in south central Cyprus. The site’s long occupation period, coupled with the diversity of archaeological remains encountered — domestic, religious, and funerary — make it an ideal training ground in archaeological methodology.
