Digital Ancient Rome: An NEH Summer Seminar for K-12 Educators – July 18-29, 2022

Digital Ancient Rome

An NEH Summer Seminar for K-12 educators

When : July 18-29, 2022

Where: Gustavus Adolphus College, St. Peter, Minnesota


Digital Ancient Rome is an NEH Summer Seminar for K-12 educators that will give teachers an opportunity to learn about important examples of Roman art, architecture, and archaeology through a broad range of digital resources. One of the most exciting things for students who study ancient Rome is that so many physical aspects of its civilization survive to this day. It is not just an ancient history that we know through texts. The surviving material remains—small artifacts, sculpture, paintings, mosaics, public monuments, neighborhoods, and whole cities—tell a variety of stories about the ancient world, and they bring history to life in a way that students find compelling.  

Teachers in this seminar will have an opportunity to explore a broad range of digital resources—from photo archives to immersive augmented reality experiences—about the ancient Roman world. We will learn how to find and access these resources as well as how to assess their reliability. We will also dedicate time each day to reflect on and plan out how we can effectively incorporate these digital resources into our teaching. We will collaboratively design engaging lesson plans and class activities that allow us to effectively take advantage of these digital resources.

Each participant will receive a stipend of $2,200 from the NEH, which will more than cover their travel to and from St. Peter and their living expenses while participating in the seminar—note that each participant is responsible for covering their own travel expenses.

The application deadline is March 1, 2022. More information and application procedures can be found at the seminar website: https://digitalancientrome.blog.gustavus.edu/

The seminar has been organized by Matthew Panciera (Gustavus Adolphus College) and Leigh Anne Lieberman (The Alexandria Archive Institute/Open Context). If you’ve got any questions, please feel free to contact Leigh directly (LeighLieberman@gmail.com).

Nunc Bibendum Est, Latin teachers toast to Rudy Masciantonio’s legacy at ‘Nova’s The Refectory

Villanova’s The Refectory was the November 20th site for the annual Fall Professional Day and Luncheon dedicated to Dr. Rudolph Masciantonio, benefactor of The Philadelphia Classical Society.

Guests from 25 area schools gave a toast “in honorem et in memoriam” Dr. Masciantonio, Philadelphia Classicist and Philanthropist, whose Trust has bequeathed annual distributions to PCS and other non-profits, through The Philadelphia Foundation.

The Refectory located at the intersection of Lancaster and Ithan  avenues is relatively new to the Main Line restaurant scene.

Brown: IO Saturnalia! Latin students herald the ancient Roman festival of peace and harmony

During the dark days of December, in many schools throughout the Main Line, students will be heard exclaiming the celebratory “IO SATURNALIA!,” a clarion call throughout the centuries of the Roman festival of the Saturnalia.

The commemoration originated in ancient Rome in honor of an early king-god named Saturnus who was renowned for the goodwill and prosperity of his reign.

According to tradition, the ancient Romans honored Saturnus as the god of seed and sowing, after the autumn planting was completed.

ASCSA 2022 William Sanders Scarborough Fellowships

DEADLINEJanuary 15, 2022

This fellowship is intended to honor and remember Professor William Sanders Scarborough and to help foster diversity in the fields of Classical and Hellenic Studies and the Humanities more broadly by supporting students and teachers from underrepresented groups in their study and research at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.

William Sanders Scarborough (1852–1926), the son of an enslaved woman and a freedman, was a pathbreaking African American Classical scholar and public intellectual. Scarborough’s scholarship included philological works on Greek and Roman authors, as well as studies of African languages and African American folklore. His First Lessons in Greek (1881) was the first foreign language textbook by an African American author. He taught at Ohio’s Wilberforce University and Payne Theological Seminary, serving as Wilberforce’s president from 1908–1920. At least twice in his life (1886 and 1896), Scarborough hoped to attend the American School, with the encouragement of the School’s Managing Committee. Lack of funding, coupled with his many professional responsibilities, kept Scarborough from realizing his dream of going to Greece. 

Eligibility: Graduate students, faculty members (K-12 and all levels of post-secondary education), and independent scholars residing in the United States or Canada, regardless of citizenship, whose geographic origin, diverse experiences, and socio-economic background are underrepresented at the School (including persons from the Black, Indigenous, and Persons of Color communities), and whose studies, research, or teaching would benefit from residency at the School. Fellowship recipients need not be specialists in the field of Classical Studies. The School welcomes applicants from faculty of K-12 schools and from students or faculty from public and private universities, colleges, and community colleges; and encourages applications from Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

Terms and Duration: The fellowship supports up to three months in residence at the School to carry out proposed research projects, to join the School’s academic programs (field trips and seminars during the regular academic year or the summer, excavations at the Agora or Corinth, scientific field schools, etc.), and/or to develop knowledge, resources, and collegial networks to enhance their teaching. Applicants interested in using the fellowship to participate in summer programs should also submit separate applications to relevant programs of interest. Applicants to the Scarborough fellowship program wishing to be considered for summer programs in 2022 should contact the ASCSA Programs Administrator at application@ascsa.org for further guidance. Applicants wishing to use the Scarborough fellowship to offset costs of participation in the Regular Member academic program of the School must also apply directly for Regular Membership. The fellowship may not be held concurrently with Regular Member Fellowships.
Awards granted in the January 2022 competition should normally be used between June 1, 2022 and May 30, 2023.

Each of the awards provides for $1500 per month (rounded upwards to the nearest whole month to a maximum of 3 month) as a stipend. The fellowship provides room and 
board at Loring Hall, a waiver of any applicable School fees, and one roundtrip economy-class airfare to Athens. The School intends to make up to four such awards each year. 

Award decisions will be announced in March 2022.
