Exciting opportunities are coming up for postgraduates and postdoctoral scholars to work in Europe, but deadlines are fast approaching, so act quickly to take advantage of them. See below for more details!

1. Summer School in Rome

“Crossing the Languages of Medieval Europe”, a Summer School, organized by The Centre for Medieval Literature (University of Southern Denmark and the University of York) and the Henri Pirenne Institute for Medieval Studies (Ghent University) will take place in 2013. The theme is: Crossing the Languages of Medieval Europe: Historical, Linguistic and Literary Approaches. The venue is: the Academia Belgica in Rome, 3-8 June. We are especially interested in attracting students from all over Europe (and beyond) who are working on a wide range of topics in a number of disciplines. There is no cost for the Summer School itself and inexpensive accommodation is available in the Belgian Academy. We are offering 4 bursaries (of 500 euro each) to cover travel/accommodation costs. The deadline for application is 15 February 2013. Please address your application to, detailing your travel costs and financial need.
A flyer with more information is available by request from Kathleen Neal.

2. Medium Aevum Travel Bursaries

The Society for the Study of Medieval Languages and Literature offers travel bursaries to support relevant research by scholars at any stage of their career, with the intention being that the grants should assist those who are not in receipt of funding from other sources. The Bursaries are open to all scholars whose research falls within the interests of the Society, broadly defined; preference may be given in making a decision to those who are members of the Society. Priority is also likely to be given to applications proposing travel for research purposes. The next deadline for applications is 14 March 2013. Application instructions and further information are here.
