The American School of Classical Studies in Athens invites applications for the M. Alison Frantz Fellowship, formerly known as the Gennadeion Fellow in Post-Classical Studies. The fellowship was named in honor of archaeologist, Byzantinist, and photographer M. Alison Frantz (1903–1995), a scholar of the post-classical Athenian Agora whose photographs of antiquities are widely used in books on Greek culture.
The fellowship is intended for Ph.D. candidates and recent Ph.D.s (up to five years) from a U.S. or Canadian institution working on topics concerned with Late Antique through Modern Greek Studies, including but not limited to the Byzantine, Frankish, Post-Byzantine, and Ottoman periods. Candidates should demonstrate their need to work in the Gennadius Library.
The award includes a stipend plus room, board, and waiver of School fees. Fellows are expected to be in residence at the School for the full academic year from early September to June 1.
