Medieval literature across languages: a multi-lingual summer school

17–28 May 2021 Swedish Research Institute in Istanbul

The summer school seeks to provide PhD students with a first immersion into the study of medieval literature across languages. Language training, with the aim of inviting PhD students to become acquainted with new medieval languages, will here be combined with lectures on case studies, addressing various methodological issues and approaches. The summer school focuses on five medieval languages: Georgian, Arabic, Greek, Latin, and Old French. Together these languages cover an immense geographical and literary expanse, yet they all involved various areas of the Eastern Mediterranean.

King’s College London Summer School
Intensive courses in Ancient Greek
Intensive courses in Latin

This year King’s College London is again running two 6-week courses (27 June – 5 August, 2016) in Ancient Greek and Latin as part of the KCL Summer School.  These courses offer students who have not previously had the opportunity to study Greek or Latin intensive training designed to bring them from complete beginners to a point where they are able to read simple texts.  They are ideal for students who intend to study for a Masters or Doctoral degree to get ahead during the summer, thus acquiring an essential skill for their future research. They are also appropriate for teachers, undergraduates, mature students and anyone with an interest in the Hellenic or Roman world.

It is also possible for complete beginners to take just the first half of the course (27 June – 15 July), and for those who already have a basic knowledge to take the second half of the course (18 July – 5 August).

In addition to language learning, we offer workshops giving an introduction to skills such as epigraphy and papyrology, and there will be some specially arranged museum visits.

Accommodation is offered for these courses by King’s College London.

Bursaries to help cover the cost of fees will be offered by the Classics Department, and we are grateful to the Classical Association for their support. The closing date for bursary applications is 16 May. The closing date for applications to the Summer School is 31 May.
