Modern Greek Studies Association

The Department of Humanities at Ca’ Foscari University (Venice, Italy) invites applications for an 18-months research fellowship in Classical Philology on the topic “Greek epigrams from antiquity to the present”, starting in Oct. 2017.

The project will be centered on the genre of Greek epigram in its various typologies and functions, with a specific focus on its transformations in the Hellenistic, late antique, medieval and modern age. The research will concentrate above all on the ecdotic and textual study of the epigrams, with a specific focus on the paths of their tradition in manuscripts and printed editions. An essential part of the research will be devoted to the Nachleben of Greek epigrams in the Byzantine age, as well as in European Humanism and in the Renaissance, to the contexts of the transmission of ancient Greek poetry in a broader sense, and to the developments of Greek versification from early modern Europe to the present, also in the frame of an international research group working at a new Anthology of "modern" poetry in ancient Greek.

The deadline for applications is August 11th, 2017. More information and the application form can be found at the links below. For any further inquiry on the scientific aspects of the fellowship please write to Filippomaria Pontani < [email protected] >. (italiano)
