Research funding

Research grants

Classics has been particularly successful in attracting research grant income over the last few years.

  • In spring 2008, in collaboration with the University of Reading, we gained a major AHRC grant for the Names on Terra Sigillata project (£412K), which has now published all 9 of the projected volumes, while an online database is being developed in collaboration with the Römisch-Germanisches Zentralmuseum in Mainz.
  • In 2008-9 Roger Brock's project Greek Political Imagery from Homer to Aristotle (Duckworth 2012) was supported by a British Academy Senior Research Fellowship (£39K). In the same year Roger also gained a British Academy Visiting Research Fellowship (£15K) on behalf of a colleague from the Sorbonne.
  • In 2010-11 Regine May's project Apuleius, Metamorphoses Book I won an AHRC Early Career Research Fellowship (£56K).
  • Over the two years 2010-12 Malcolm Heath's project Aristotle and the anthropology of poetry was supported by a Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship (£82K).
