    UPDATE: STUDENT SUPPORT FOR THE CARC WORKSHOP–

    We are delighted this year to be able to offer two student bursaries for the CARC Workshop 2019 Textile Art in the Graeco-Roman World on Thursday 26th and Friday 27th September in Oxford.

    These are intended to support undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled on University programmes or due to start by October 2019.  Each bursary covers up to £100 in support of travel and accommodation expenses.

    Please apply by emailing carc@classics.ox.ac.uk with a letter of no more than 500 words including an estimate of costs.  Payment will be made to the successful applicants after the event on submission of receipts (please note that reimbursement can take up to six weeks).

    The programme for our 2019 CARC workshop, kindly supported by Jean-David Cahn and Tony Michaels, is now available on our website.  Textile Art in the Graeco-Roman World will focus on the visual imagery of ancient textiles from Archaic Greece to late antiquity, asking questions about a fundamentally important art tradition which we glimpse through extraordinary chance survivals and representations in other media. Subjects will have a wide chronological and geographical range, but will revolve around a shared set of art-historical and archaeological questions.

    All are welcome and attendance is free, but please book a place by emailing carc@classics.ox.ac.uk
