Syriac and Armenian Summer School

Dumbarton Oaks / HMML Syriac and Armenian Summer School
When: July 10-August 12, 2017
Location: St. John’s University, Minnesota

Dumbarton Oaks and the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library have an opportunity for PhD students and early-career researchers to learn Syriac or Armenian through an intensive summer program.

From the website:

Dumbarton Oaks in collaboration with HHML, announces two intensive five-week courses introducing Syriac and Classical Armenian language and paleography in summer of 2017. The program, sponsored and funded by Dumbarton Oaks, will be hosted at HMML. The summer school will run from July 10 to August 12, 2017. The audience is doctoral students or recent PhDs who can demonstrate a need to learn Syriac or Armenian for their research. Note that it is not possible to enroll in both courses.

Approximately ten places will be available in each course. Costs for tuition, housing, and meals will be covered by Dumbarton Oaks. The selected participants will be responsible for their own travel costs to and from Saint John’s University (nearest airport: Minneapolis-St Paul). The program welcomes international applicants but does not sponsor J visas.

Following this intensive course, students will be fully equipped to continue reading on their own or to enter reading courses at other institutions.
