The Centre welcomes proposals for future research projects, whether on
specific texts or on the Latin
culture of Ireland in the period.
Students are expected to graduate with advanced knowledge of Latin,
textual scholarship and relevant historical methods. The Centre
offers to its postgraduates additional training in languages and
research methods, as well as guidance for historical contextualisation.
Further enquiries should be addressed to Dr Jason Harris: email@example.com;
