Two Classics graduate students have been awarded prestigious fellowships to study paleography abroad. William Little has been awarded a fellowship in the Diploma Program in Manuscript Studies of Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies in Toronto. In his program, William will undertake a concentrated study of Latin manuscripts in both Rome and Toronto over the next two summers, with access to some of Europe's greatest libraries and archives, including the Vatican Library, the Biblioteca Casanatense, and the Biblioteca Nazionale. Christie Pavey has been awarded a Leventis Foundation Scholarship to attend the 2013 summer session in Medieval Greek at the Gennadius Library of the American School of Classical Studies in Athens. The month-long program will include daily analysis and translation of Byzantine texts; paleography; an introduction to the bibliography of Byzantine philology and electronic resources; an introduction to the collections of the Gennadius Library, which houses 120,000 volumes and archives, and visits to area museums and libraries and monuments outside Athens.
