Thesaurus Linguae Latinae, Society for Classical Studies
Fellows at the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae (TLL) develop a broadened perspective of the range and complexity of the Latin language and culture from the classical period through the early Middle Ages, contribute signed articles to the Thesaurus, have the opportunity to participate in a collaborative international research project in a collegial environment, and work with senior scholars in the field of Latin lexicography. Before leaving for Munich, Fellows receive additional funds to support training in Latin lexicography and (if necessary) German. Thanks to the Friends of George Goold Fund in the SCS’s Endowment for Classics Research and Teaching, Fellows may also request reimbursement of travel expenses for two trips to and from Munich during the fellowship year. In certain instances the TLL Fellowship Committee may also authorize Goold Fund support for other research activities of a Fellow.
The opportunity to contribute articles to be published in the lexicon may be of special interest to established scholars as well as those who are just entering the profession. The Fellowship offers valuable experience for scholars in a variety of specialties (e.g., Latin language and literature, Roman law, Roman history, the literature of early Christianity); although it is not limited to individuals working in Latin philology, applicants should possess a thorough familiarity with and a special interest in the Latin language, as well as advanced competence in Greek. It is anticipated that applicants will already have a reading knowledge of German and will be willing to work toward proficiency in spoken German.
