On Thursday, I was in Copenhagen to receive an “EliteForsk” Fellowship from the Danish Ministry of Science. This is a fellowship that comes with absolutely amazing funding for travel and research, so it was a great pleasure to accept, especially in the magnificient surroundings of the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek that houses Denmark’s finest collection of Classical antiquities. 19 PhD students across all disciplines at Danish universities were awarded fellowships, and 31 senior scholars received other awards and fellowships. In attendance were Helge Sander, Minister of Science (seen in the photo above), and HRH Crown Princess Mary.
