Rutgers University-Camden historian Evan Jewell is one of only 38 Americans – all in the early or middle stages of their careers – to receive the American Academy in Rome’s “gift of time and space to think and work.”

Jewell, an assistant professor of history, was selected for the Rome Prize in part due to the book project he is currently working on that takes a new approach to studying the ancient history of youth and aging in the Roman world. The project combines many different media, such as coins, sculpture, literary texts and graffiti.

Jewell will receive a stipend, workspace, plus room and board for the academy’s 11-acre campus in Rome from September 2022 to July 2023.
