Call for Applications: Classical Summer School Director, American Academy in Rome

AAR Seeks Applicants for the Position of Classical Summer School Director

The American Academy in Rome invites applications for the position of Director of its Classical Summer School, beginning in summer 2021, for a term of three years (2021–23). It is customary for the director-designate to shadow the incumbent in the summer preceding (2020). The deadline for applications is November 4, 2019.

The Classical Summer School was established in 1923 for high school teachers and graduate students of Latin, ancient history, and the classics, but its audience has become more varied over the years, including college teachers and those working in related fields. It is of particular use to those with few opportunities to visit Rome and underrepresented groups in classics more generally. The school is designed to provide participants with a well-founded understanding of the growth and development of the ancient city of Rome and its immediate environs from the earliest times to the age of Constantine through a careful study of material remains and literary sources. Considerable time is also spent on discussions of pedagogy and on integrating the knowledge gained in the course into the teaching of Greek, Latin, and courses on the ancient world.
