Visiting Scholar Maria Schoina at CHS

This week Maria Schoina, Assistant Professor of English literature at the School of English of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, will be staying at CHS and using the library.  She is the author of Romantic Anglo-Italians: Configurations of Identity in Byron, the Shelleys, and the Pisan Circle (Ashgate 2009). Currently, she is working on a project that “aims to develop the work which has been done so far on English Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley and his relationship to the ancient Greek world.” While at CHS, she will look specifically at Shelley’s reading of the Homeric Hymns.
The CHS, in its ongoing effort to support scholars who could benefit from access to the Center’s library resources and from consulting and working with the rest of the fellows on a short-term basis, awards a limited number of grants each term, which provide:
1. up to six nights of housing in a studio apartment on campus,
2. lunches during the week (Mondays through Fridays), and
3. support for travel up to $1000.
The CHS will consider requests from visiting scholars on a rolling basis and is currently accepting applications for visits from January 21 to May 20, 2015. Scholars wishing to visit the CHS in fall 2015 may apply after July 1, 2015.
