Primates in Antiquity is a one-day multidisciplinary symposium conceived to explore and interpret the iconography of monkeys and apes in antiquity.
The Leslie Center accepts applications to cosponsor events. Please submit to the administrator a completed application with a description of the event, and a draft budget. It is also important for applicants to outline any other secured or desired sources of funding.
Funding & Benefits:
Cosponsorship seldom exceeds $2,500, and normally remains below $500. Proposals for large-scale cosponsorship of events or institutes will be dealt with under the rules governing Humanities Center Projects or Humanities Center Institutes. Unless built into the proposal, administrative help will not be provided for cosponsored events. We will, however, post relevant information on this website, list the event on the term calendar we distribute, and, if asked, relay information to faculty via email.
Selection & Deadlines:
Requests up to $750 may be submitted at any time; requests above $750 should be submitted in sync with our funding deadlines (Feb. 1, May 1, Nov. 1 each year). Requests will be considered on their merits, but the consistency of the project with the Center's interdisciplinary goals will be a major consideration.
