RA-259204-18

Society for Classical Studies (New York, NY 10003-7112)
Yelena Baraz (Project Director: August 2017 to present)

Long-term Research Fellowships in Germany sponsored by The Society for Classical Studies

12 months of stipend support (one fellowship) per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

Since 1984 the Society for Classical Studies has collaborated with the Thesaurus Institute in Munich to provide an annual NEH-supported fellowship for an American scholar to spend a year there contributing research to the Institute’s project, the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae, which is an encyclopedic lexicon of classical Latin to c. 600 CE and a flagship project in lexicography. Fellows join an international network of scholars engaged in creating this fundamental scholarly resource, gain deep familiarity with an enormous range of Latin texts and genres outside the narrow literary canon, and publish several signed articles in the lexicon on individual Latin words, while advancing their own research agendas. The research conducted by the fellows increases our understanding of the Latin language and its influence on modern languages and cultures. The SCS requests a three-year grant to continue this important fellowship, covering one twelve-month fellowship for three years.
