USC'S TRAINING Program for scholars, conservators, library and museum professionals, archivists and researchers in the use of Reflectance Transformation imaging (RTI) for documenting ancient texts and artifacts, including the loan of imaging equipment
CALL FOR PROPOSALS (ROUND TWO)
The University of Southern California's West Semitic Research Project
(www.usc.edu/dept/LAS/wsrp) has just approved the first applicants for training in Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI). The projects that have been accepted include RTI documentation of:
ο Egyptian graffiti incised on stone blocks
ο Wax and lead tablets and clay seals ranging from the first century BCE to the eighth century CE
ο Egyptian quartzite statues
ο Korean artifacts
The Training Program is funded by grants from the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The IMLS and the Mellon Foundation have also funded the purchase of imaging equipment to support the Training Program.
The objective of this project is to develop an infrastructure for training scholars in the use of RTI technology and subsequently to lend the necessary imaging equipment to participants in the training program so they can do an initial RTI documentation project either in field environments (archaeological sites, etc.) or in libraries, museums and/or other similar venues, worldwide. This initial undertaking should be understood to be a pilot project that can develop into an ongoing, broader documentary effort and preferably may also serve as the catalyst for establishing a scholarly network consortium for image documentation of a given corpus (or corpora) of ancient texts and/or artifacts. All equipment to be lent out is both rugged and compact and is thus ideal for doing sophisticated imaging in remote locations. Twenty-four awards over three years (approximately eight per year) for traineeships will be provided based on the merit and intrinsic importance of a proposed pilot imaging project as well as the appropriateness of the subject matter for RTI imaging.
The next deadline for applying to the training program is January 15, 2013, followed by another deadline of April 15, 2013.
For more information, see

China’s Maritime Commerce and Naval Activities in Northeast Asia During the “Yuan-Ming Rupture”
Funding for a 48 months doctoral scholarship to be undertaken at the Department of South and East Asian Languages and Cultures, Ghent University, Belgium (supervisor Prof. Dr. Angela Schottenhammer).
The scholarship will require a comparative-analytic investigation of both written and archaeological sources as well as a cross-cultural approach analyzing, when existent, also sources from Korea and Japan. Research concentrates on a time-period that has been designated “Yuan-Ming rupture” in modern literature, reflecting the fact that great changes took place in terms of maritime commerce and policy. The archaeological evidence focuses on recently discovered shipwrecks at Penglai in Dengzhou Prefecture, Shandong, China, including comparisons with other archaeological evidence such as the Shin’an shipwreck in Korea.
The successful candidate is expected to carry out a thorough investigation of China’s maritime policy, of local maritime activities, and commercial and technological exchange during that time considering also the involvement and interaction of official, in particular military (naval), government authorities and personnel in and with private commerce. The scholarship thus offers an interesting possibility to combine not only archaeology and textual evidence but also private and official as well as military and civil aspects during the period of the shift from the Mongol Yuan to the early Ming dynasty.
The successful candidate should possess a strong knowledge of classical and modern Chinese; knowledge in Japanese would be highly welcome and a basic command of Korean of advantage. The candidate will be provided with an international network of scholars working on maritime history.
Possible starting date: April/May 2012
