CCU professor awarded prestigious Rome Prize

  Villa Aurelia  
Florence Eliza Glaze, assistant professor of history and co-director of the Honors Program at Coastal Carolina University, has been awarded the Andrew W. Mellon Post-doctoral Rome Prize in Medieval Studies.

The Rome Prize for the 2007-2008 academic year includes an 11-month fellowship at the American Academy in Rome. Glaze, a medieval specialist who has conducted considerable research on medicine during the Middle Ages, will work to complete her current project, "Gariopontus and the Salernitans: Medical Practice and Medical Theory, c. 1050-1225."

Each year, through a national competition, some 30 Americans receive Rome Prize fellowships for advanced research and independent study in arts and the humanities. Only four post-doctoral prizes in the humanities are awarded for research in ancient studies, medieval studies, Renaissance and early modern studies, and modern Italian studies.

Glaze, who joined Coastal's faculty in 2003, earned a Ph.D. from Duke University. She taught previously at the College of Charleston.

Founded in 1894, the American Academy in Rome is one of the leading American overseas centers for advanced scholarly research. A private institution, the Academy is supported by gifts from individuals, foundations, corporations and universities, as well as by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the U.S. Department of Education.
