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.

“Bilderfahrzeuge: Warburg’s Legacy and the Future of Iconology” (Warburg Institute, London)

Warburg Institute, London
Application deadline: Jul 1, 2015

Research post: “Bilderfahrzeuge: Warburg’s Legacy and the Future of Iconology” – International Research Group

The Bilderfahrzeuge Research Group, funded by the German ministry of higher education and science, realised in cooperation with the Max Weber-Stiftung, and situated at the Warburg Institute in London, invites applications for a full-time research post (in principle post-doctoral) based at the Warburg Institute in London for two years in the first instance from October 2015 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The objective of this project is to explore the migration of images, objects, ideas and texts in a broad historical and geographical context. The aim shall be a contribution to the history of images which is based on Aby Warburg’s approach and method, rethinking them in the light of new interdisciplinary, international scholarship. The project will reconstruct and develop a rich scholarly approach which addresses the distinctiveness of images while also studying the language in which ideas about transfers between cultures (including ideas about images) are expressed.

The research post is part of the staff in London that contributes particularly to the overall project of studying the ways in which images and ideas are transferred between cultures and to the project of investigating the role of rhetoric in understanding images, ideas and intercultural relations.  The post-holder will conduct own research and contribute to the larger projects. We are particularly interested in applicants with high level research skills in art history, trade between Europe and the Orient, prints and other portable images, rhetoric, anthropology and comparative religion. Applicants will be expected to have a good knowledge of the languages relevant to their field of study and a good speaking and reading knowledge of German and English.

The post-holder will be employed by the Max Weber-Stiftung and paid on German government  scales for local positions abroad/Ortskraftvertrag. Place of work is London.

The Max Weber Stiftung is committed to increasing the number of women in academic posts and would therefore particularly welcome applications from women.

Applications should include a letter of application indicating candidates’ interests in and suitability for the projects of the research group, a curriculum vitae and publications list, the names of three referees and a writing sample of around 5,000 words of published or unpublished research. Completed applications must be submitted by Wednesday 1 July.

Interviews will be held in London at the Warburg Institute in the second half of September 2015.
