Training in Reflectance Transformation Imaging

ANNOUNCING A NEW TRAINING Program for Scholars, conservators and researchers in the Use of Reflectance
Transformation imaging (RTI) for Documenting ancient texts and artifacts including the Loan of Imaging Equipment

The University of Southern California's West Semitic Research Project (www.usc.edu/dept/LAS/wsrp) has received grants from the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to establish a Training Program in advanced imaging technologies for the documentation of ancient texts and artifacts with an initial emphasis on Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI). The IMLS and the Mellon Foundation have also funded the purchase of imaging equipment to support the Training Program.

The objective of this project is to develop an infrastructure for training scholars in the use of RTI technology and subsequently to lend the necessary imaging equipment to participants in the training program so they can do an initial RTI documentation project either in field environments (archaeological sites, etc.) or in libraries, museums and/or other similar venues, worldwide. This initial undertaking should be understood to be a pilot project that can develop into an ongoing, broader documentary effort and preferably may also serve as the catalyst for establishing a consortial network for image documentation of a given corpus (or corpora) of ancient texts and/or artifacts. All equipment to be lent out is both rugged and compact and is thus ideal for doing sophisticated imaging in remote locations.

Twenty-four awards over three years (approximately eight per year) for traineeships will be provided based on the merit and intrinsic importance of a proposed pilot imaging project as well as the appropriateness of the subject matter for RTI imaging.

For more information, see http://www.usc.edu/dept/LAS/wsrp/Training_Program.pdf.

Fellowships for the HMML Manuscript Collection (Ethiopic Enoch, etc.)

1. The Swenson Family Fellowship in Eastern Christian Manuscript Studies provides grants of $2500-5000 to junior scholars (graduate students and postdoctoral scholars within three years of having been awarded their doctorate) who need to consult HMML's Eastern Christian manuscript collections for their research. Awards will be made twice annually, with deadlines for applications on April 15 and November 15. Details can be found at: http://www.hmml.org/news10/Swenson.htm

2. The Nicky B. Carpenter Endowed Fellowship in Manuscript Studies provides an annual award of $5000 to a senior scholar using any of HMML's manuscript collections. The deadline for applications is April 15.

Details can be found at: http://www.hmml.org/news10/Carpenter.htm.

Junior Scholars may also apply for one of HMML's Heckman stipends: http://www.hmml.org/research2010/heckman10.htm Note that applications for the 2014 Dietrich Reinhart OSB Fellowship in Eastern Christian Manuscript Studies will open in fall 2013, and an announcement will be made here at that time.

Questions about these opportunities may be sent to: hmmlfellowships@csbsju.edu.

3. The Hill Museum & Manuscript Library (HMML) [Saint John's University, Collegeville, MN] announces grants available for cataloging work in its eastern Christian collections in Arabic/Gar??n?, Armenian, Old Church Slavonic, and Syriac. These grants are funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Many of these collections are greatly understudied and catalogers thus have prime opportunities for new and further research, as well as the satisfaction of making a contribution to our knowledge of the literature and of manuscript traditions.

The grants support full-time cataloging work for periods of one to six months, and are renewable. The work may be done anywhere; residence at HMML is not expected. Catalogers will be expected to prepare text-level records for, ideally, 75 manuscripts per month (with these numbers adjusted for genres with multiple texts per manuscript, such as hagiography and homilies). A sample record may be viewed here. A brief report summarizing completed work (numbers, notable finds, etc.) will be sent twice a month to HMML's lead cataloger of eastern Christian manuscripts, Adam McCollum. Completed records will be submitted on a monthly basis.

The grants offer a stipend of $2500/month, with the added benefit of copies of two digitized manuscripts from HMML’s collections each month at no cost, which may be used for personal research. Those who wish to apply for a cataloging grant may send their CV and a cover letter to Adam McCollum (amccollum@csbsju.edu), to whom also any informal enquiries may be sent off-list.

DE GRUYTER AND THE SOCIETY OF BIBLICAL LITERATURE ESTABLISH ANNUAL PRIZE IN BIBLICAL RECEPTION HISTORY

More Information: http://www.sbl-site.org/assets/pdfs/SBL_WDG-Diss_Recept-Award_Guidelines.pdf


De Gruyter, in partnership with The Society of Biblical Literature, has launched an annual “Prize for Biblical Studies and Reception History” to support biblical scholars in the early stages of their careers who are working in the field of reception history. The inaugural prize will be awarded at the SBL Annual Meeting in November 2014.

De Gruyter’s sponsorship of the award will include an annual cash prize of $1,500 for the best recent unpublished dissertation or first monograph in biblical studies, with special attention to the field of reception history. The prize will also include a commitment to publish the winning work after it has been revised into a publishable book acceptable to De Gruyter.

SBL will manage the submissions, support the committee of scholars to evaluate the works submitted, and select the winning dissertation or monograph. The award committee will consist of seven persons, five of which will be appointed by SBL’s Research and Publications Committee, with two scholars appointed by De Gruyter.

The award promotes the study of the reception history of the Bible and aims to highlight the broad impact of the Bible in a wide variety of historical contexts and cultural settings. “De Gruyter has taken an active and leading role in this growing field in biblical studies, one that cultivates interdisciplinary studies in the humanities,” said John Kutsko, SBL’s Executive Director. He added, “In addition to SBL’s attention to its member’s increasing focus on reception history of the Bible through its own publishing program, SBL is grateful to De Gruyter for investing in this area of research and teaching.” “Reception history illustrates the remarkable influence of the Bible throughout history and in all aspects of society and culture, including literature, film, music, politics, and the visual and performing arts,” said Albrecht D?hnert, De Gruyter’s Editorial Director of Religious Studies. “SBL scholars cover a breathtaking range of knowledge, including the origins and context of biblical texts, as well as the reception of the Bible in Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and beyond. Its membership will be a rich pool for groundbreaking work.”

Details for eligibility, dates for submitting manuscripts for the 2014 inaugural prize, and submission guidelines are available here.

The Society of Biblical Literature, founded in 1880, is the oldest and largest learned society devoted to the critical investigation of the Bible from a variety of academic disciplines. As an international organization, the Society offers its members opportunities for mutual support, intellectual growth, and professional development. The Society is a Constituent Learned Society member of the American Council of Learned Societies.

For more than 260 years, De Gruyter has been recognized for publishing high-quality, landmark works in the humanities and natural sciences. The scope of de Gruyter’s publishing program includes theology and philosophy, biology and chemistry, linguistics and literature, mathematics and physics, history and archaeology, as well as law and medicine. Most recently De Gruyter has pioneered developments in the reception history of the Bible, with works such as the multivolume Encyclopedia of the Bible and Its Reception and the new Journal of the Bible and Its Reception.

The successful candidate will be working on the editing of the masora figurata in one Hebrew Biblical manuscript (digital edition of the text and its illustrations). In addition, the edition will be accompagnied by an indexing commentary and partial translation.

2. Doctoral stipend (TVL E 13 65%):
The successful candidate will be working on the masorah references found in Biblical commentaries and grammatical treatises as his PhD-project.

The integration of the project into the collaborative research center 933 and as well as into the research network of the Center for Jewish Studies demands regular attendance at Heidelberg. For further information, please contact:

Advanced Seminar in the Humanities 2011-2012
Literature and Culture in the Ancient Mediterranean: Greece, Rome, and the Near East

From November 21 to December 2, 2011, Universita Ca Foscari Venezia, in cooperation with Venice International University, will offer an advanced seminar on "Literature and Culture in the Ancient Mediterranean: Greece, Rome and the Near East".

The program is conceived as a two year commitment over two successive years (2011 and 2012). The first session (November 2011) will consist of lectures by scholars with a seminar approach on the origins and development of literary genres and literacy in Ancient Greece, Rome and the Near East. Some of the lectures will run simultaneously and will be devoted respectively to the interpretation of specific classical and near eastern texts, with more focus on textual analysis. The lectures will alternate with a series of site visits, for example, to the Marciana Library, the Library of San Lazzaro degli Armeni, and the Basilica of Saint Mark. The aim of the program is firstly to investigate the relationship between themes, motifs and structures of the texts, starting with the early examples of epic poetry and of wisdom and didactic literature; secondly, to examine the processes involved in their transmission and preservation in both oral and written forms. A variety of issues concerning the history of literate cultures will also be reviewed, such as, for example, the textual traditions, the creation and organization of libraries, the classification of genres, and the relationship between literature and politics.

THE 2011-2012 TIKVAH SCHOLAR-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM CALL FOR APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN

The Tikvah Center for Law & Jewish Civilization is now accepting applications for the Post-Doctoral and Visiting Doctoral Tikvah Scholar-in-Residence Program for the academic year 2011-2012. The Center also accepts applications from recent J.D. Graduates.

The Program is directed at outstanding graduate students and young scholars interested in spending a year researching, writing, and learning in the company of some of the best scholars in the field of Law & Jewish Civilization. They will be part of the Tikvah Scholars group that also includes the very finest students of NYU Law School and the NYU Skirball Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies.

The Program consists of three strands:
1. The Tikvah Scholar Forum: Center Directors Moshe Halbertal and Joseph Weiler lead a forum series on the theme of "Critical Readings in Law & Jewish Civilization," with 5 sessions each semester, to teach the Scholars how to think, question, differentiate, internalize, and communicate complex issues pertaining to Law & Jewish Civilization. The Forum thus provides essential, heuristic tools for the Scholars to become and serve as responsible, independent thinkers at the forefront of each academic field as well as in the general public setting. (Sample texts include: Hebrew Bible, rabbinic literature, Moses Mendelssohn's Jerusalem, The Declaration of the Independence of Israel, and Recent Proposals for a Constitution of the State of Israel).

2. The Mentorship and Writing Project: Each of the Scholars is mentored by one of the Tikvah Fellows in residence and expected to engage in a research or reflection exercise resulting in a paper or article within the broad theme of Law & Jewish Civilization. Among the 2011-2012 Tikvah Fellows are Professors Ruth Gavison (the Hebrew University of Jerusalem), Charles Leben (University of Paris II), and Amnon Rubinstein (the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya).

3. Integration with the Tikvah Intellectual Community: Scholars are fully integrated into the Tikvah Center and are invited to participate in all intellectual and social activities of the Center, including the Tikvah Public Lecture Series, Tikvah Fellows Workshops, Cardozo-Tikvah Legal Theory Reading Group, and Tikvah Afternoon Tea. Through a variety of such occasions, formal and informal alike, the Scholars will closely interact with the distinguished members of the Center.

The stipends will be awarded on the basis of need, ranging from US$7,500 to US$40,000. The applications must be commensurate with the Center's mission statement. Candidates should submit the application materials as described on the Center's website: http://www.nyutikvah.org/scholars/application.html. The deadline is February 28, 2011, and the positions are awarded on a rolling basis.

NOBLE GROUP FELLOWSHIPS FOR CHINESE STUDENTS AND SCHOLARS, 2011-2012
The Albright Institute

The W.F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research in Jerusalem is the oldest American research center for ancient Near Eastern studies in the Middle East. Founded in 1900 as the American School of Oriental Research (ASOR), it was renamed in 1970 after its most distinguished director, William Foxwell Albright. The Institute is within easy walking distance of all of the local and foreign institutes of archaeology in Jerusalem. This grouping of scholarly resources is one of the heaviest concentrations of human, bibliographic and artifact resources in Near Eastern Studies in the world.

For more than 110 years, Albright/ASOR has provided students and scholars with an unparalleled international cultural environment and a unique program which spans the broad spectrum of Near Eastern studies from pre-history through the early Islamic period. This includes the disciplines of archaeology, anthropology, art history, Bible, historical geography, history, and ancient languages and literature, religion and related subjects. Each year, the Albright's program includes sixty fellows, primarily from North America, Europe, Asia and Australia, including Israelis and Palestinians. Dedicated to the advancement of the study of the Near East, the Albright continues to strive for excellence in scholarship.

Now, as in the past, the Albright Institute provides a wide range of programs and facilities for doctoral and post-doctoral research for more than 3,000 persons. These include an annual series of 80 lectures, reports, seminars, workshops, field trips, and social events. The Institute also assists 32 ASOR-affiliated/AIAR-related excavation and publication projects, among which are Ashkelon, Caesarea, Gezer, Sepphoris, and the Tel Miqne-Ekron project, jointly sponsored by the Albright and the Hebrew University. The Albright Institute has a publications program, a comprehensive research library, workshops, computer facilities and living accommodations.

Noble Group Fellowships

Funds for these fellowships have been provided by the Noble Group of Hong Kong. The purpose is to provide Chinese students and scholars in the humanities an opportunity to broaden their knowledge of current research in Near Eastern Studies in Israel, to provide them with scholarly resources not available to them in their home institutions, and to offer them opportunities to interact with both local and foreign scholars through the Albright's fellowship program.

Eligibility

These fellowships are open to Chinese doctoral students and post-doctoral candidates in any area within the interests of the Albright. Candidates can either be studying or in residence in China or doing research at institutions in other countries.

Award

The award of each of the three fellowships for a period of nine months (September, 2011 - May, 2012) is $25,000, which covers a stipend including all accommodations and subsistence, travel and shipping costs. Applications must be submitted online by March 15th, 2011. Residence at the Albright is required during the fellowship year.

Awards will be announced in May 2011. All candidates will be informed of the outcome of their applications.

Fellows are expected to participate in the academic program and collegial life of the Albright and to share the results of their research in a seminar at the Institute. As the Albright's program is conducted in English, Fellows should have a good command of the language. A brief written report is required at the conclusion of the fellowship appointment as well as a two-page summary of the Fellow's research for publication in the Newsletter of the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR). All publications based on the research conducted with the aid of a Noble Group Fellowship should contain an acknowledgment of this award.

Applications are made online through the Albright website: http://www.aiar.org

BAR Travel Fellowship Established to Honor IES President

To honor Joseph Aviram on his retirement, BAR is establishing the Joseph Aviram Fellowship to bring an Israeli scholar to the United States each year to present a paper at the annual meeting (in November) of the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR) or the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL). For many years, Joseph himself attended these meetings.

The Joseph Aviram Fellow will receive a stipend of $2,500 to cover his or her travel expenses from Israel to the United States . Joseph Aviram has led the Israel Exploration Society (IES) for generations. More precisely, he has been associated with the society for more than 70 years. He is the face—and head—of Israeli archaeology. He is the one person more than any other who has brought the disparate elements of the Israeli archaeological behemoth together. He is the conciliator as well as the leader. He is universally admired within the academy as well as outside.

PhD Opportunity: The Jewish Revolt against Rome (0,9 fte) (210026) at the Qumran Institute of the University of Groningen, the Netherlands.

The Graduate School of Theology and Religious Studies of the University of Groningen is looking for a PhD candidate (0,9 fte) for the project 'The Jewish Revolt against Rome: Religious Groups and the Shaping of Identities in First-Century Judaea'.

This PhD position is financed by a grant of the SNS/Reaal Fund. It will run parallel to the interdisciplinary NWO VENI project The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Jewish War against Rome (66-70), which investigates the impact of Rome on the self-understanding of a Jewish group at Qumran prior to the revolt.

The candidates are expected to carry out research within the historical and archaeological framework of first-century Judaea in relation to the impact of the Roman Empire on the region and the conflict of 66-70/73. Projects may investigate e.g. Flavius Josephus' position, specific Jewish groups, Roman reactions, specific sites, regions or interregional connections from different perspectives and on the basis of different sources (literary, archaeological and/or numismatic). The final form of the PhD project will be determined in consultation with the PhD candidate.

We are looking for enthusiastic candidates with a Master's degree or equivalent, in a (sub)discipline in which the doctoral study will take place. Candidates with a degree in Jewish Studies, Ancient History, Classics, or Archaeology are especially encouraged to apply.

The degree must have been obtained within a reasonable period of time and with results that justify the expectation that the student will be able to successfully complete the programme in four years.

This PhD position is available as of September 1st, 2010.

The Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies
University of Pennsylvania

1. 2010-2011 Fellowship Program: Converts and Conversion to and from Judaism

We are looking forward to starting our discussions on the phenomenon of conversion from antiquity to the present. Conversion forces both the convert and the religion to define their outermost boundaries and formalize criteria for membership and exclusion. The act of conversion is at the same time a ritualized, often public, transformation not only one of interior religious and psychological consciousness, but of cultural and social affiliation. For the history of Judaism, conversion is doubly freighted-it can mark a break with one's birth community, but it has often also marked the impossibility of such a break. Examples of this ambivalence are legion. What then does it mean to be fully Christian, fully Muslim, or fully Jewish? Are these categories essential and stable, or are they themselves transformed or redefined by conversion? How do Muslim or Christian understandings of conversion compare to or illuminate the Jewish experience? We hope to bring several arenas of inquiry and debate into a single conversation so that methodological, social scientific, and historical studies may be mutually instructive, enriching our broader understanding, not only of Jews in their world but of the religious experience itself.

2. Research Opportunities at the Katz Center Summer 2010

Past fellows are invited to apply for summer research support at the Katz Center. The research should be conducted over the course of two weeks or more between May 15, 2010 and August 15, 2010. Recipients will be given an office and computer and will have access to the Penn Libraries.

We are now accepting applications for 2010-2011.
The deadline for submissions is December 14, 2009.

Please see the application instructions below for details.

Each year the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World makes about 9 appointments of visiting research scholars. For a directory of current visiting research scholars (2009-10), click http://www.nyu.edu/isaw/scholars.htm

ISAW's scope embraces research and graduate education in the history, archaeology, and culture of the entire Old World from late prehistoric times to the eighth century AD, including Asia and Africa. Projects of a theoretical or comparative nature relevant to this domain are also welcome. Academic visitors at ISAW should be individuals of scholarly distinction or promise in any relevant field of ancient studies who will benefit from the stimulation of working in an environment with colleagues in other disciplines. Applicants with a history of interdisciplinary exchange are particularly welcome. They will be expected to be in residence at the Institute during the period for which they are appointed and to take part in the intellectual life of the community.

Visiting research scholars at ISAW have access to the Institute's own library, which is in the process of development, as well as to a wide range of other libraries at NYU, the Metropolitan Museum of Art (located a block away), and other institutions in New York City. Scholars are provided with their own workspace. ISAW is prepared to host both individuals coming with their own funding and those needing partial or full support for a semester or year. Those appointed with ISAW funding will normally bear NYU research track ranks and have regular university benefits. Research support is normally a part of funding packages.

ISAW is prepared to consider not only individual applications for residencies but proposals from small research teams (usually two persons), the members of which are normally based in different institutions. It will also consider applications for years later than 2010-11 in cases where the applicant is interested in organizing an exhibition or a conference at ISAW.

A complete application will include an application form (http://www.nyu.edu/isaw/materials/VRSapp.pdf), letter of interest, c.v. (including publication list), and a research proposal.

Announcement of Prize for Outstanding Paper in Septuagint Studies

The International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies is offering an annual prize of $250 to be awarded for an outstanding paper in the field of Septuagint Studies. This field is construed broadly, and a paper may focus on any aspect of the study of the Greek translations of the Jewish Scriptures. The IOSCS wants to encourage the study of these translations by younger scholars, and eligibility is thus limited to advanced graduate students or recent Ph.D. recipients (3 years or less after receiving the degree). The papers will be judged by a committee constituted of IOSCS members, and papers receiving prizes will be published in an appropriate form in the following Bulletin of the IOSCS. Depending on its assessments of the papers submitted, the committee may decide not to award the prize in any given year. The deadline for submission is August 31 of each year. Papers should be sent either to Leonard Greenspoon, President IOSCS, The Klutznick Chair in Jewish Civilization, Creighton University, Omaha, NE 68178 or to Benjamin G. Wright, Department of Religion Studies, Maginnes Hall, 9 W. Packer Ave., Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA 18015.

American Oriental Society
Jonas C. Greenfield Prize for Younger Semitists


Thanks to a gift by Bella Greenfield, the American Oriental Society established a prize to honor the memory of the eminent Semitist and long-term AOS member, Jonas C. Greenfield (1926-1995), professor of Ancient Semitic Languages at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem.

The Greenfield Prize carries a cash award of $2,000 and is granted biannually to a younger scholar for the best published article in any area of Semitic studies that has appeared in the two-year interval between awards. In accordance with a stipulation of the donor, the scholar entering the current competition was to be forty years old or younger by the submission deadline of 15 June, 2000.

In "'Ninety-Nine by the Evil Eye and One from Natural Causes': KTU21.96 in its Near Eastern Context" (Ugarit-Forschungen 30 [1998]: 201-278), J. N. FORD follows an insight by G. del Olmo Lete to propose that this difficult Ugaritic text is an incantation against the evil eye. Beyond offering a translation of the text based on a thorough philological analysis, Ford reviews a wide array of ancient Near Eastern references to the evil, or roaming, eye and locates this theme comparatively within the practice of magic in the ancient world. Ford's study, moving from textual details to broad conclusions on aspects of the supernatural, is a fitting tribute to the standards, methodologies, and achievements of Jonas Greenfield.

Presentation of the award will take place at the Society's annual meeting in Toronto, March 30 - April 2, 2001.

The first Prize was awarded to Christa Mueller-Kessler in March 1999, for her essay "The Story of Bguzan-Lilit, Daughter of Zanay-Lilit," The Journal of the American Oriental Society 116:2 (1996): 185-195.

The Lady Davis Fellowship Trust seeks to make the cultural heritage of Israel and its achievements in development, state-building, scholarship, science and education widely available and known to people from all over the world. Lady Davis, who died in Montreal, Canada, in I 1963, was a distinguished philanthropist and benefactor of educational institutions. Mr. Bernard Bloomfield of Montreal founded the Trust in the name of Lady Davis, and devoted considerable time and care during the early years to ensure its sound evolution. At his death, Mrs. Neri Bloomfield took over the Chair and has played a pivotal role in overseeing its continued development into one of the most distinguished fellowship programs in the world.

Lady Davis Fellowships are awarded at the Hebrew University and Technion, on the basis of excellence in achievement and promise of further distinction. They are open to candidates of every race, creed, nationality and sex.

Since its inception in 1973 and up to and including the academic year 1997-78 the Lady Davis Fellowship Trust has awarded 1,468 Fellowships.

The Lady David Trust offers three different Fellowships:

1. for Visiting Professors
2. for Post-doctoral researchers
3. for Doctoral students

Lady Davis Fellowships are awarded after a rigorous academic review process, and are intended not only to promote an exchange of ideas and information, but also to cement personal relationships that will provide the basis for an ongoing academic liaison in the future.
