TLL Fellowship 2021-2022 Application Cycle

TLL Fellowship 2021-2022 Application Cycle

Supported by a Generous Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities

The Society for Classical Studies invites applications for a one-year Fellowship, tenable from July 2022 through June 2023, that will allow an American scholar to conduct lexicographical research at the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae (TLL) Institute in Munich. Fellows at the TLL develop a broadened perspective of the range and complexity of the Latin language and culture from the classical period through the early Middle Ages, contribute signed articles to the Thesaurus, have the opportunity to participate in a collaborative international research project in a collegial environment, and work with senior scholars in the field of Latin lexicography.  The Fellowship carries a stipend in the amount of $60,000, an increase over prior years, and is made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.  Before leaving for Munich, fellows receive up to $1,850 in additional funds to support training in Latin lexicography and (if necessary) German. Thanks to the Friends of George Goold Fund in the SCS’s Endowment for Classics Research and Teaching, Fellows may also request reimbursement of travel expenses for two return trips between North America and Munich, to enable the Fellow to take up the fellowship and to attend the annual SCS meeting.  In certain instances the TLL Fellowship Advisory Board may also authorize Goold Fund support for other research activities of a Fellow.  The incumbent Fellow may re-apply for a second year, but all applications will be judged on an equal footing.

Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents.  In addition, all applicants must have completed all PhD requirements, including submission of the PhD dissertation,by the date on which they submit their application materials.  Applicants who have completed all PhD requirements but have not yet had the degree conferred should provide a letter from their Director of Graduate Studies that states: (a) that all PhD requirements are complete; and (b) the date on which the degree will be conferred.  The opportunity to conduct lexicographical research and contribute articles to be published in the lexicon may be of special interest to scholars who are already established in tenure-track positions, as well as those who are just entering the profession.  The Fellowship offers valuable experience for scholars in a variety of specialties (e.g., Latin language and literature, Roman law, Roman history, the literature of early Christianity); although it is not limited to individuals working in Latin philology, applicants should possess a thorough familiarity with and a special interest in the Latin language, as well as advanced competence in Greek.  It is anticipated that applicants will already have a reading knowledge of German and will be willing to work toward proficiency in spoken German. Women and members of groups currently underrepresented in Classics are particularly encouraged to apply.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a statement of what benefits the applicant expects to derive from the Fellowship for his/her research and teaching, and the names of three referees, whom the applicant should ask to send supporting letters to the Executive Director of the Society for Classical Studies without further notice.  The candidate’s statement should address the two basic eligibility requirements (status of the candidate’s citizenship/residency and doctoral degree).  It will be in the candidate’s interest if at least one letter of recommendation can specifically address the candidate’s suitability for the Fellowship. Candidates will be considered by a selection committee appointed by the SCS’s TLL Fellowship Advisory Board.  That selection committee will choose a short-list of candidates to be invited for interview remotely in December 2021 January 2022 and the name of the successful candidate will be announced shortly thereafter.

Applications must be received by the deadline of Friday, November 12, 2021, at 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time. Applications should be submitted as e-mail attachments to Dr. Helen Cullyer, Executive Director, Society for Classical Studies, xd@classicalstudies.org.  A complete application will consist of five files sent as attachments.  The candidate is responsible for sending two of these documents: the statement and the curriculum vitae.  Each of the three referees should send his or her letter directly to the Executive Director.

If, for some reason, it is impossible to submit these materials electronically, please write to Dr. Cullyer at the e-mail address above or call her at 646-939-0435 for alternative instructions.  Visit the Publications and Research Division's page on the TLL for more information, or contact the Chairperson of the TLL Fellowship Advisory Board of the SCS:

"How do you take a discipline that's been around as long as higher education itself and make it fresh, interesting, and new? Ask classics professor Dr. Rebecca Resinski. Through Your Hendrix Odyssey: Engaging in Active Learning and other engaged learning programs, classics students at Hendrix have participated in archaeological excavations and on-site study in Greece, Italy, and Portugal. One student group studied the Parthenon by travelling to Nashville, Tenn., where there is a life-size replica of the Parthenon; to London, where the Parthenon Marbles are kept in the British Museum; and to Athens, where the Parthenon itself stands on the Acropolis. Another group gave readings of Greek tragedies for the campus community and designed costumes for updated versions of Greek drama."
