An NEH Summer Institute for College and University Faculty, “Roman Comedy in Performance,” will be held in Chapel Hill, North Carolina from June 24th through July 20th , 2012. Co-directed by Professors Sharon L. James (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) and Timothy J. Moore (University of Texas at Austin), the NEH Summer Institute will give NEH Summer Scholars (twenty-two university or college faculty members and three graduate students) the opportunity to discuss the performance practice and social significance of Roman Comedy with leading experts in the field and to practice scholarship through performance, producing their own performances of scenes from the plays of Plautus and Terence. The NEH Summer Scholars for this Institute will include non-classicists as well as classicists, and no knowledge of Latin is required. 

 

Participants will receive a stipend of $3,300.
