Mary-Evelyn Farrior, a Ph.D. candidate in Classical Studies, has received the Emeline Hill Richardson/Jesse Howard, Jr. Rome Prize in Ancient Studies for 2023-24. Awarded annually by the American Academy in Rome (AAR), the fellowship supports advanced work and research in the arts and humanities. This highly competitive prize is given each year to artists and scholars, both at early and middle stages of their careers, who the Academy feels represent the highest standard of excellence in their respective fields. Fellows remain in residence at the Academy in Rome and are encouraged to collaborate across disciplinary divides.
Thanks to the support of the AAR, Mary-Evelyn will continue her doctoral research on Inscribing Community: Mapping Greek Inscriptions in Imperial Rome. See more about Mary-Evelyn Farrior.
