Institute Deadlines Quickly Approaching

The Annual Institute will be held at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs this October 26-27.

The deadline to register for a room at the hotel at the group rate is quickly approaching. Conference participants who wish to spend Friday night at the Embassy Suites need to book a room by Wednesday, Sept. 26 to guarantee the rate of $175.00. After September 26, rooms cannot be guaranteed at that rate.

Registrations for the conference will close on Oct. 12 and we need to be firm on that date because of Skidmore's need for a final head count.

Please visit the Annual Institute page for more information on the program as well as lodging and scholarship opportunities.

ASCSA NEH Fellowship - Deadline October 31


Deadline: October 31, 2018

Founded in 1881, the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA) is the most significant resource in Greece for American scholars in the fields of Greek language, literature, history, archaeology, philosophy, and art, from pre-Hellenic times to the present. It offers two major research libraries: the Blegen, with over 107,000 volumes dedicated to the ancient Mediterranean world; and the Gennadius, with over 146,000 volumes and archives devoted to post-classical Hellenic civilization and, more broadly, the Balkans and the eastern Mediterranean. The School also provides centers for advanced research in archaeological and related topics at its excavations in the Athenian Agora and Corinth, and houses an archaeological sciences laboratory at the main campus in Athens. By agreement with the Greek government, the ASCSA is authorized to serve as liaison with the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports on behalf of American students and scholars for the acquisition of permits to conduct archaeological work and to study collections.
