  • The Thesaurus linguae Latinae Institute announces its second Latin Lexicography Summer School, a one-week event in Munich, July 22 to 26, 2019. We invite participation by researchers at any stage in their career whose work involves the rigorous evaluation of Latin words in any aspect, ranging from their use in specific texts or their changing significance across the entire corpus of ancient Latin. In addition to philology, relevant disciplines include conceptual and intellectual history, epigraphy, linguistics, literary and textual criticism, medieval and Renaissance studies, philosophy, and theology. This year Professor James N. Adams will be present as a scholar in residence. The program offers three types of activity. First, seminars and related exercises will address Latin lexicography, the methods and format of the TLL, and particularly challenging corpora (e.g. inscriptions, the vetus Latina Bible translation, ancient lexicography). Secondly, participants will collaborate in the production of a short lexicographic entry, which will be published in a forthcoming fascicle (lemma to be determined by the editors). Lastly, there will be daily time for participants’ own research in the Thesaurus Archive, supported by advice from researchers at the dictionary. Unfortunately, the time for independent research is limited by other activities, and we encourage researchers with more extensive projects to arrive earlier, stay longer than a week, or plan a visit on another occasion, which is always welcome.
