Tytus Summer Residency Program

University of Cincinnati Department of Classics

Saturday, February 15, 2014

The University of Cincinnati Classics Department is pleased to announce the Margo Tytus Summer Residency Program.    Summer Residents, in the fields of philology, history and archaeology  will come to Cincinnati for a  minimum of one month and a maximum of three  during the summer.   Applicants must have the Ph.D. in hand at the time of application.   Apart from residence in Cincinnati during term, the only obligation of Summer Residents is to pursue their own research.     They will receive  free university housing.   They will also receive office space and enjoy the use of the University of Cincinnati and Hebrew Union College Libraries.  

The University of Cincinnati Burnam Classics Library (http://www.libraries.uc.edu/libraries/classics/) is one of the world's premier collections in the field of Classical Studies.  Comprising 260,000 volumes and other research materials, the library covers all aspects of the Classics: the languages and literatures, history, civilization, art, and archaeology.  Of special value for scholars is both the richness of the collection and its accessibility -- almost any avenue of research in the classics can be pursued deeply and broadly under a single roof.  The unusually comprehensive core collection, which is maintained by three professional classicist librarians, is augmented by several special collections such as 15,000 nineteenth century German Programmschriften, extensive holdings in Palaeography,   Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies.   At neighboring Hebrew Union College, the Klau  Library (http://library.cn.huc.edu/), with holdings  in excess of 450,000 volumes and other research materials, is rich in Judaica  and Near Eastern Studies.

A description of the Tytus Summer Residency Program and an application form is available online at  http://classics.uc.edu/index.php/tytus.   Questions can be directed to Prof. Getzel M. Cohen (getzel.cohen@uc.edu).
