Roman Daily Life

Here's an opportunity to read Petronius, some graffiti in Latin and look at Pompeian archaeology for various topics of Roman daily life. The Petronius forms a central core of the seminar which requires an intermediate level of Latin proficiency (1 year of college level Latin).

The seminar has been organized by Matthew Panciera (Gustavus Adolphus College) and will be co-taught by him, Beth Severy-Hoven (Macalester), Jeremy Hartnett (Wabash), and Rebecca Benefiel (Washington and Lee).

The NEH pays each person $2700 to participate, for living and food expenses (approximately $1500).

The application deadline is March 1. More information on the seminar and directions on applying can be found at the website (
