Inaugural Margaret Braine Fellow in Classics and Ancient History

at the University of Western Australia (Semester 1, 2015)

The  University of Western Australia (UWA) in Perth, a public university founded in 1911 with some 25.000 students, and a member of the excellent Australian research universities  "Group of 8",  had advertised the first "Margaret Braine Fellowship for Classics and Ancient History", and it was a great honour that I was selected to be the inaugural Margaret Braine Fellow for semester 1, 2015 (23.1.-19.6.2015). After 6 years as president (VC) of the Universität Erfurt in Germany the Fellowship allowed me to spend a sabbatical term in Perth and gave me the ideal opportunity to concentrate on Classics and Ancient History again. I am very grateful indeed to my hosts – Prof.s Lara and Neil O'Sullivan and the other classicists at UWA – and to UWA’s administration – Brenda Dagnall, Richard Small and others. The following report details some of the activities during my time in Perth.

Margaret Braine Publication and Lecture

The Fellowship is funded from a bequest made by Margaret Braine (1920–2009), who worked as a teacher and lecturer in education in Perth, and in her later years had developed keen interests in Latin and in gemstones. It seemed appropriate for the inaugural Margaret Braine Fellow in Classics and Ancient History at UWA to bring together these two significant threads in Margaret Braine‘s life, Latin and gemstones.

To honour Margaret Braine’s memory, I worked on the Latin book “On Gemstones”, written by Damigeron in the 2nd century AD and widely used, rewritten, excerpted and expanded in the ancient, medieval and early modern worlds. It introduces more than 70 gemstones and shows their perceived powers over the risks – and joys – of life the ancient world. We meet kings and servants, house-owners and thieves, athletes and drunkards, gladiators and robbers, masters and slaves, and most notably women and babies who are so often marginalized in ancient texts. I have produced a bilingual Latin/English edition – the first complete critical edition and the first full translation into any language – and had a preliminary version printed, while the final version has been submitted to an academic press in the UK. Also, the Margaret Braine Memorial Lecture was dedicated to “The Power of Gemstones: Anxieties in the Roman World” (22.4.)

The other main project was a book on the Romans in Romania, for which a draft has now been submitted to a publisher in Germany and an academic press in the UK.

Journal and Series Editor

I continued to be the managing editor of the international journal for ancient history HISTORIA, of which fasc. 2 and 3 (of 4) for 2015 appeared while I was in Perth.

In book series for which I am editor or co-editor the following works appeared while I was in Perth:

  • Edition Antike: G. Laser / P. Emberger: Justin, Römische Weltgeschichte, I (2015). 325 pp.; O. Schönberger / F. Weitz: Horaz, Satiren und Briefe (2015). 383 pp.

  • Studien zur Alten Geschichte: K. Trampedach: Politische Mantik (2015). 652 pp.

Teaching

I was most grateful that my urgent requests to allow me some teaching were answered; it is so much nicer for a Visiting Fellow to share the life of colleagues in both research and teaching, and the UWA students proved most stimulating to teach! I could help with

  • Classical Languages / Latin (CLAN2102, for J. Owen) - 1-2 sessions/week
  • Virgil, Aeneid VIII (CLAN 3104, for Prof. Y. Haskell) - 6 sessions
  • Researching the Classical World (CLAN4101, for Prof. L. O'Sullivan) - 2 sessions
  • Citizens and Soldiers (CLAN4104, for Prof. Y. Haskell) - 6 sessions

For UWA I was invited to assess an Honours dissertation, and for my home university, Erfurt in Germany, I had to mark two MA theses and look after two Dr. phil. habil., one Dr. phil. and two MA candidates.

Lectures at UWA, in Perth (“outreach”) and in other parts of Australia

Apart from the Margaret Braine Memorial Lecture (see above) I was invited to give further papers in Perth:

  • UWA School of Music Research Seminar: Gaudeamus Igitur: Classics in 19th century academic songs (17.3.)
  • UWA School of Historical Studies / Classics Research Seminar: The Seven (or Eight or Nine) Wonders of the Ancient World (1.5.)
  • WA Government Department of Mines and Petroleum: Gemstones in the Roman World (12.5.)
  • Gemmological Association of Australia, WA: Damigeron on Gemstones (4.6.)

In addition, five short journeys enabled me to visit other universities in Australia for invited papers, and advertise UWA and the Margaret Braine Fellowship in Classics and Ancient History in Australia:

  • Adelaide, University of Adelaide: Philostratus and the Octoberfest: How the rediscovery of a classical text shaped the modern Olympics (30.1.)
  • Canberra, Australian National University: The Seven (or Eight or Nine) Wonders of the Ancient World (5.3.)
  • Melbourne, La Trobe University: Philostratus and the Octoberfest: How the rediscovery of a classical text shaped the modern Olympics (28.4.)
  • Melbourne, La Trobe University: The Seven (or Eight or Nine) Wonders of the Ancient World (28.4.)
  • Melbourne, University of Melbourne: The Power of Gemstones: Anxieties in the Roman World (29.4.)
  • Melbourne, Classical Association of Victoria: We would have become Roman: From Arminius to Herman the German (29.4.)
  • Brisbane, University of Queensland: How Caesar made Britain an Island (15.5.)
  • Brisbane, University of Queensland: Romans and Barbarians in Pliny and his "ape" Solinus (15.5.)
  • Armidale, University of New England: How Caesar made Britain an Island (18.5.)
  • Armidale, University of New England: Romans and Barbarians in Pliny and his "ape" Solinus (18.5.)
  • Sydney, University of Sydney: The Power of Gemstones: Anxieties in the Roman World (28.5.)
  • Macquarie University: Romans and Barbarians in Pliny and his "ape" Solinus (29.5.)

So all in all 17 lectures allowed me to liaise with many colleagues, and the wider public in Australia (add to this a radio interview in Adelaide, a Podcast at La Trobe in Melbourne, and recorded lectures in Armidale).

Perth

I was fortunate to be able to rent the apartment 5/3 Clark Street from UWA, close to the campus, and to share in the celebrations of Australia Day (26.1.), the "Perth Giants" (14.2.) and ANZAC Day (25.4.) in Perth.

Prof.s Lara und Neil O'Sullivan invited me to their home (15.2., 10.5., 17.6.), to two AFL games (Carlton vs. West Coast in Mandurah 27.2. and in Subiaco 10.4.), and to New Norcia (14.6.). Several outings within Perth led me (and over Easter my wife and family) to Scots Presbyterian Church Fremantle (15.3.), Yalgorup Thrombolites and Bunbury (21.3.), Cottesloe and Sorrento (3.4.), Whiteman Park (6.4.), Perth Mint (8.4.), Penguin Island and Mandurah (11.4.), St George's College (12.4.), Western Australian Parliament (4.5.) and, with John Melville-Jones, Freemantle Art Gallery (23.5.) and  Mundaring Weir (13.6.). Evensong in the Anglican St George's Cathedral was always a highlight of my Sundays in Perth (25.1., 15.3., 5.4. et al.).

The wonderful theatres on the UWA Campus enabled me to visit several productions: Perth Writers Festival: Walkley Foundation for Journalism with Madonna King, Mary Delahunt, Bob Cronin, and Chris Warren (20.2.); Perth Comedy Festival: Paul Foot and Lawrence Leung (1.5.), Axis of Awesome (8.5.), Daniel Sloss (9.5.), Laughing Samoans (13.6.), but most of all a host of lively student productions: Aristophanes, Lysistrate (UWA French Club, dir. Stella Sulak, 13.3.); Marlowe, Doctor Faustus (GRADS Perth, dir. Stephen Lee, 18.3.); Shake­speare, Midsummer Night's Dream (Corpus Christi College Perth, dir. Kesli Davis and James Dove, 28.3.); Wedekind, Spring Awakening (Fresh Bred, dir. Craig Griffen,11.4.); Wilde, Importance of Being Earnest (Univ. Dramatic Society, dir. Antonina Heymanson, 30.4.); The Greek, the Bad, and the godly (UWA Pantomine Society, 7.5.); Munt, Inselhaft 1914/15 (UWA German Theatre Group, dir. Marlene Angol, 8.5.); Middleton, The Revengers Tragedy (UWA Cultural Studies, dir. Steve Chinna, 21.5.); Gilbert & Sullivan, The Pirates of Pen­sance (Gilbert and Sullivan Society of WA, dir. Joshua Walker, 3.6.).

And I’ll certainly remember the peacocks in the Arts Building, my bank which had sent all letters and cards to the “University of Western Australia, Germany”, from where they were duly returned to arrive in Perth three months later, the retired lecturer who volunteers as a guide to the bushland in Whiteman Park, and the cathedral choir in their surpluses even at temperatures of more than 40 degrees. I shall be forever grateful to John Melville-Jones and Neil O’Sullivan for proofreading two of the books mentioned above, and to him and Lara O’Sullivan for looking after me so well. And I’ll very fondly remember the colleagues and students at UWA and 'interstate' and look forward to a return visit!

Tätigkeitsbericht SoSe 2015

Am 1. Juli 2014 endete meine Amtszeit im Präsidium. Nach § 31 Abs. 7 Thür. Hochschulgesetz ist der Präsident "von seinen Dienstpflichten als Hochschullehrer für ein Jahr nach Beendigung der Amtszeit befreit". Um meinem Nachfolger im Präsidentenamt in Erfurt nicht im Weg zu stehen, wollte ich die gesetzliche Freistellung für Forschung und Lehre im Ausland nutzen, solange es meine Gesundheit zulässt (bei mir wurde im Frühjahr 2012 die degenerative Nierenerkrankung "Morbus Berger" diagnostiziert). In der ersten Hälfte jenes akademischen Jahres durfte ich als Gastwissenschaftler an der Universitatea Lucian Blaga Sibiu (ULBS) in Hermannstadt / Rumänien zur antiken Geschichte und Kultur Siebenbürgens forschen und am Departement für Evangelische Theologie Lehrveranstaltungen abhalten; darüber liegt ein eigener Bericht vor.

Für die zweite Hälfte - konkret für die Zeit vom 23.1. bis 19.6.2015 - hatte mir bereits im vergangenen Jahr die University of Western Australia in Perth (Australien) das international ausgeschriebene und nun erstmals verliehene "Margaret Braine Fellowship for Classics and Ancient History" - eine Art Forschungspreis - verliehen. Die University of Western Australia ist eine 1911 gegründete staatliche Volluniversität, die heute zur "Group of 8" der exzellenten Forschungsuniversitäten Australiens gehört und etwa 25.000 Studierende zählt.

Den Kolleginnen und Kollegen, namentlich Lara und Neil O'Sullivan, und der Universitätsverwaltung, namentlich Brenda Dagnall and Richard Small, bin ich für die freundliche und unkomplizierte Aufnahme sehr dankbar.

In der folgenden Übersicht berichte ich kurz über meine Tätigkeiten zwischen 16.1. und 30.6.2015. Über die früheren Tätigkeiten liegen jeweils eigene Berichte vor.
