In 2016, the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto will offer the following courses in Medieval Latin:
Beginning Latin (8 hours of instruction weekly, 24 May to 15 July 2016, with an optional three-week reading course thereafter). Textbook: Moreland and Fleischer, Latin: an Intensive Course.
Level One Medieval Latin (7.5 hours weekly, 30 May to 8 July 2016, with an optional two-week grammar review before the course).
Level Two Medieval Latin (7.5 hours weekly, 11 July to 19 August 2016).
Enrolment in the Level One and Level Two courses will be restricted and will depend on performance in the April Level One Latin examination. Information on the examinations and the summer program is available on line (medieval.utoronto.ca).
The fee for each course is $1,200 (Can) for Canadian residents, or its equivalent in US dollars for non-Canadian residents. The deadline to apply for all courses is 1 May 2016. Enrolment in each course is limited.
A limited number of stipends are available for graduate students participating in summer courses in medieval languages or manuscript studies, and Level One and Level Two Latin at the Centre for Medieval Studies. The stipend will be paid directly to the program to offset a portion of the tuition cost and is contingent on acceptance into the program. Applicants must be members of the Medieval Academy in good standing with at least one year of graduate school remaining and must demonstrate both the importance of the summer course to their program of study and their home institution’s inability to offer analogous coursework.
To apply, please submit a statement of purpose, CV, and two letters of recommendation, to:
MAA/CARA Summer Scholarships
Medieval Academy of America
17 Dunster St., Suite 202
Cambridge, Mass. 02138
Applications must be received by 6 May and will be judged by the Committee for Professional Development and the Chair of the CARA Committee. There will be between four and eight awards yearly, depending upon the number of worthy applicants and the cost of the summer programs.
