Fellowship to a USA scholar for research in the field of Latin lexicography at an institute in Germany. During the year-long program, the selected fellow will conduct research studies on Latin philology and culture, contribute entries to the lexicon project, and collaborate with other scholars in the field. In addition to the stipend, the fellow will receive funding for training, travel, and other research activities.
Every year since 1984, the Society for Classical Studies (CSC) has sent a post-doctoral Fellow to Munich to contribute to the world's most detailed lexicographical project on classical Latin, the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae. The project aims to compile a monolingual dictionary—composed in Latin. The SCS/NEH Fellow is assigned to a Redaktor (Editor) who is responsible for guiding the Fellow in the research and composition of entries for the lexicon. The entries are referred to as "articles," and each appears under its author's name, just the same as an article in a journal.
Thesaurus Linguae Latinae (TLL) Fellowship 2021-2022 Application Cycle:
The Society for Classical Studies invites applications for a one-year Fellowship 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 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).
In addition to the stipend, fellows receive additional funds before leaving for Munich to support training in Latin lexicography and (if necessary) German. They may also receive funds for travel expenses. In certain instances the TLL Fellowship Advisory Board may also authorize support for other research activities of a Fellow.
GrantWatch ID#: 197049
The Fellowship carries a stipend in the amount of $60,000.
Before leaving for Munich, fellows receive up to $1,850 in additional funds to support training in Latin lexicography and (if necessary) German.
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.
The one-year Fellowship is tenable from July 2022 through June 2023.
