The Department of Classics announces its second Postdoctoral Fellowship for a two-year, non-renewable, period beginning August 2016.

In addition, we seek someone who will have an interest in participating in a conference (in the planning stages) on “Epic and History at Rome” to be held during the two-year period of this fellowship.
