Research at University of Cologne

The Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung announces two to four scholarships for non-German postgraduates or non-German scholars with a PhD to conduct research at the Historisches Institut, Abt. Alte Geschichte, University of Cologne.  Scholarships are for periods ranging between 6 and 24 months. Recipients of the scholarships will receive amounts that correspond with those granted by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (currently about 1.200 € per month for a postgraduate, 1.800 € per month for a scholar with a PhD.).  The scholarships are intended for projects from all disciplines of classical studies pertaining to the general topic of "centre and periphery", but projects in Greek or Latin epigraphy of the high empire and late antiquity are especially encouraged.

Since Greek and Latin epigraphy has long been an area of special interest in ancient studies at the University of Cologne, the institute is well equipped to accommodate the sorts of research project that the grants are designed to support. Other research pertaining to the topic "centre and periphery" currently ongoing in Cologne concerns the christianisation of Asia Minor during the first six centuries and the archaeology of pre-modern economies (cf. http://www.varinst.de/en/node/59).  During the tenure of the scholarships, individuals are required to live and and conduct their research in Cologne and are expected to participate, e. g., in courses offered in the degree program "Papyrologie, Ephigraphik, Numismatik" as well as in possible other courses.

Earliest start of the scholarship is 01 October 2014. It is also possible to apply for a project that will begin at a later date. Comparable announcements will be made in the following years.  Applicants should submit the usual materials (curriculum vitae, publications, description of the project, etc.) and an indication regarding the desired starting date of the scholarship and the desired length of the stay in Cologne.

Applications should reach Prof. Dr. W. Ameling, Universität zu Köln, Historisches Institut, Albertus Magnus Platz, D-50923 Köln, Germany (walter.ameling@uni-koeln.de), not later than 15 May 2014.

"Strolling through outer peristyle of the Getty Villa in Malibu, Calif., is about as close as you can get to time travelling. It’s easy to feel just like a Roman citizen discussing the affairs of the day while meandering through the gardens dotted with bronze statues or sitting at the edge of the 67-metre-long reflecting pool beneath a low-hanging sun. The only thing missing is the toga. While the ancient ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum in southern Italy leave visitors to piece together in their own minds what the daily lives of Romans must have been like, the Getty Villa leaves very little to the imagination."
