Saw this on the CAMWS site … figured someone might be interested:

NEH Summer Institute – “Roman Comedy in Performance”

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 learn about the performance practice and social significance of Roman
Comedy from 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. Applications are due by March 1, 2012. For more
