Eric P. Newman Graduate Seminar in Numismatics
For over half a century the American Numismatic Society, a museum of coins, money and economic history, has offered select graduate students and junior faculty the opportunity to work hands-on with one of the world‘s preeminent numismatic collections. With over three-quarters of a million objects, ANS’s collection is particularly strong in Greek, Roman, Islamic, and Far Eastern coinages, as well as medallic art. The rigorous eight-week course taught by the curatorial and research staff, guest lecturers and a visiting scholar introduces students to the methods, theories and history of the discipline. The seminar is meant primarily for those with limited or no numismatic background in order to familiarize students of (art) history, textual studies, and archaeology with a body of evidence that is often overlooked and poorly understood.
Applications are now closed for 2022.
