    GRADUATE STUDENT FELLOWSHIPS

    Deadline for CAARI graduate student fellowships is December 9, 2019.

    The Danielle Parks Memorial Fellowship
    Danielle Parks, author of The Roman Coinage of Cyprus (Nicosia, 2004), directed excavations at the Amathus Gate Cemetery. She first came to Cyprus as an Anita Cecil O’Donovan Fellow. Her death as a young scholar in 2006, deeply felt by the wide circle of her colleagues and friends, is memorialized here by a fellowship designed to open the world of Cypriot culture to young scholars.

    This is a fellowship of US $2,000 for a graduate student of any nationality who needs to work in Cyprus to further his/her research on a subject of relevance to Cypriot archaeology and culture. The purpose of the fellowship is to help cover travel to and living expenses in Cyprus. Applications are invited especially from students of Hellenistic and Roman Cyprus. During his/her stay, the fellow is expected to give a presentation at CAARI on a subject related to his/her research. The fellow will periodically keep the Director of CAARI apprised of his/her research activities. The fellow will acknowledge CAARI and the Danielle Parks Memorial Fellowship in any publication that emerges from the research carried during the fellowship. Residence at CAARI is required.

    Oxford Workshop: Textile Art in the Graeco-Roman World

    Ioannou Centre, 66 St Giles’, Oxford OX1 3LU

    UPDATE: WORKSHOP WEBCAST

    Live webcast links are now available on our website (www.carc.ox.ac.uk) for this event on Thursday 26th and Friday 27th September at The Ioannou Centre, 66 St Giles’ (OX1 3LU).  These will be live shortly before each session starts.  Places to attend in person are still available and are free but please book by emailing: carc@classics.ox.ac.uk

    Edited podcasts will be available at a later date also via our website.

    Please be aware that our website will be temporarily unavailable for ten minutes early on the morning of the 26th whilst our IT services are doing an update.  All should be back to normal for the start of the workshop.

    The programme for our 2019 CARC workshop, kindly supported by Jean-David Cahn and Tony Michaels, is 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.
