NEH Summer Seminar Opportunity

Thursday, February 4, 2016

In the summer of 2016 (July 18-August 5), there will be an NEH Summer Seminar for pre-collegiate teachers on the topic of Roman Daily Life. This seminar is an opportunity to read Petronius and some graffiti in Latin and look at Pompeian archaeology for various topics of Roman daily life. The Petronius reading in particular forms a central core of the seminar, and thus an intermediate level of Latin proficiency (1 year of college level Latin) is required. The seminar will be held in St. Peter, Minnesota (1 hour from Minneapolis) on the campus of Gustavus Adolphus College. The NEH pays each person $2700 to participate, which will more than cover the living and food expenses (approximately $1500). The seminar has been organized by Matthew Panciera (Gustavus Adolphus College) and will be co-taught by him, Beth Severy-Hoven (Macalester), Jeremy Hartnett (Wabash), and Rebecca Benefiel (Washington and Lee).

The application deadline is March 1. More information on the seminar and directions on applying can be found at the website (https://gustavus.edu/events/romandailylife/).

If questions, please write Matthew Panciera, the director of the seminar, at panciera@gustavus.edu.
