SPARC (Spatial Archaeometry Research Collaborations) Summer Fieldwork and Data & Analytics Awards — Deadline 15 December 2013

SPARC is now accepting applications for summer Fieldwork and Data & Analytics awards (target project period of May through October 2014).

Fieldwork awards support on-site data collection and analysis for archaeological field projects. Successful applicants will receive free use of equipment and software, the participation of SPARC staff members to assist with data collection, as well as post-fieldwork consultation and data processing.

Data & Analytics awards provide support from SPARC staff in the preparation, processing and analysis of geospatial datasets. Awards can support, for example, the preparation of aerial and satellite imagery or the creation of a regional GIS in advance of an archaeological survey. Awards can also support advanced processing of data including geophysics, terrestrial scanning, or photogrammetric images, in order to draw out details and subtleties in the dataset or to integrate them with other data.

The deadline to submit applications is the 15 December 2013.

Applications can be submitted through the project website: http://sparc.cast.uark.edu.

60th Annual Eric P. Newman Graduate Summer Seminar in Numismatics — Application Deadline February 14, 2014

60th Annual Eric P. Newman

Graduate Summer Seminar in Numismatics

June 2 through July 25, 2014

Study at the foremost seminar in numismatic methods and theory For over half a century, The American Numismatic Society, a scholarly organization and museum of coins, money, and the economic history of all periods, has offered select graduate students and junior faculty the opportunity to work hands-on with its preeminent numismatic collections. With over three-quarters of a million objects, the collection is particularly strong in Greek, Roman, Islamic, and Far Eastern coinages, as well as Medallic Art. Located in New York City’s SoHo district, the Society also houses the most complete numismatic library anywhere.

The rigorous eight-week course, taught by ANS staff, guest lecturers, and a Visiting Scholar, introduces students to the methods, theories, and history of the discipline. In addition to the lecture program, students will select a numismatic research topic and, utilizing ANS resources, write a paper during the Seminar. The Seminar is intended to provide students of History, Art History, Textual Studies, and Archeology who have little or no numismatic background with a working knowledge of a body of evidence that is often overlooked and poorly understood. Successful applicants are typically doctoral candidates or junior faculty in a related discipline, but masters candidates are admitted as well. This year’s Visiting Scholar will be Professor Suzanne Frey-Kupper of the Department of Classics
and Ancient History at Warwick University. Prof. Frey-Kupper is well known for her research and publications on the Greek, Punic and Roman coinages of the Western Mediterranean.

Applications are due no later than February 14, 2014. A limited number of stipends of up to $4000 are available to US citizens, and non-US citizens studying at US institutions under J-1 visas.

For application forms and further information, please see the Summer Seminar page of our website: numismatics.org/Seminar, or contact the Seminar Co-Director, Dr. Peter van Alfen (vanalfen@numismatics.org; 212-571-4470, x153).
