The Summer Program in Roman Epigraphy at the American Academy in Rome is an intensive two-week course designed to introduce advanced graduate students and early career scholars to the study of Roman epigraphy, particularly the reading, interpretation, and editing of Latin inscriptions from the city of Rome. Participants will learn how to read and classify the main types of Roman inscriptions (on stone, metal, and clay) and how to edit Greek and Latin inscriptions, both in print and according to the EpiDoc conventions for digital editing of epigraphic texts. Instruction will include hands-on practice in reading and recording inscriptions at the American Academy in Rome; epigraphic walks in Trastevere and the old city; visits to major museum collections (notably those of the Museo Nazionale Romano and the Capitoline Museums); and field trips to one or more sites with Roman epitaphs and burials in situ: on the Gianiculum (Doria Pamphili columbaria and tombs), or Vatican (Santa Rosa cemetery), or at Ostia and Isola Sacra. By the end of the course, participants will have had practice editing unpublished inscriptions and will be able to read and understand most basic types of Latin inscription on stone.

PhD Scholarship in “Epitaphs and Social Change in Late Antique Italy (300-600 CE)” at St Andrews

Posted on behalf of Carlos Machado

Application window December 2019 to 16 January 2020, for entry in autumn 2020

The University of St Andrews is pleased to offer a full scholarship funded by St Leonard’s Postgraduate College, to support an exceptional student undertaking doctoral research in the following project:

Remembering the Dead on the Edge of Empire: Epitaphs and Social Change in Late Antique Italy (300-600 CE)

Project Desciption

This project will examine the transformations of north Italian society between 300 and 600 CE, analysing key developments in the relationship between memory, identity, and social power. Focusing on funerary inscriptions as part of the strategies for social promotion used by inhabitants of Italian cities – including both migrant and ‘indigenous’ groups – it will examine their contribution to the redefinition of the communities in which they lived. The resulting thesis will provide an original picture of late antique Italy, giving voice to new and often neglected social groups and identities. It will also focus directly on a relatively neglected, yet crucially important, set of Late Antique data – inscribed epitaphs. Scholars have recently paid great attention to funerary rites as a means of establishing social standing within a community. Our proposed project goes one step further, focusing on how this activity continued beyond death and burial – through the medium of inscribing words on stone. In doing this, it will represent an innovative and ground-breaking study in late antique studies, whether in terms of its interdisciplinary methodology, approach, and results. Continue reading
