"UCLA, it turns out, is “uniquely rich in scholars who work in Renaissance Latin, even though until now, they have had limited opportunity to teach such texts in the original,” said Classics Professor Shane Butler, who, like Shuger, is an expert in the field of Neo-Latin studies. Those limitations are about to end, thanks to a $700,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation that will make UCLA a preeminent center in the country for the teaching of Renaissance Latin. The grant to the Department of Classics will fund fellowships for post-baccalaureate and graduate students who want to work on Renaissance Latin texts written in a wide range of fields, from political science to literature. It will also enable UCLA to expand its core curriculum in Neo-Latin and host a lecture series to connect students to the wider world of Renaissance Latin studies."
