THE M. ALISON FRANTZ FELLOWSHIP IN POST-CLASSICAL STUDIES AT THE GENNADIUS LIBRARY

Deadline: January 15

The M. Alison Frantz Fellowship, formerly known as the Gennadeion Fellow in Post-Classical Studies, was named in honor of photographer and archaeologist, M. Alison Frantz (1903 – 1995) whose photographs of antiquities are widely used in books on Greek culture.

Fields of study: Late Antiquity, Byzantine Studies, post-Byzantine Studies, or Modern Greek Studies.

Eligibility: Ph.D. candidates and recent Ph.D.s (up to five years) from a U.S. or Canadian institution. Successful candidates should demonstrate their need to work in the Gennadius Library.

A final report is due at the end of the award period, and the ASCSA expects that copies of all publications that result from research conducted as a Fellow of the ASCSA be contributed to the Gennadius Library.

Please note that for the 2018-2019 academic year, the Blegen and the Gennadius libraries may be closed for up to six months between January and June for reorganization; members of the School will continue to have access to other facilities of the School and other libraries in Athens.
