    Crash Course in Greek Palaeography

    09:30Campus Boekentoren (UGent)
    OIKOS, workshop

    The Greek department of Ghent University offers a two-day course in Greek palaeography in collaboration with the Research School OIKOS. The course is intended for MA, ResMA and doctoral students in the areas of Classics, Ancient History, Ancient Civilizations and Medieval studies with a good command of Greek. It offers a chronological introduction into Greek palaeography from the Hellenistic period until the end of the Middle Ages and is specifically aimed at acquiring practical skills for research involving literary and documentary papyri and/or manuscripts. We will also provide the unique opportunity to read from original papyri in the papyrus collection of the Ghent University Library and become familiar with the ongoing research projects at Ghent University.

    Programme

    The course is set up as an intensive two-day seminar. Five lectures by specialists in the field will give a chronological overview of the development of Greek handwriting, each followed by a practice session reading relevant extracts from papyri and manuscripts in smaller groups under the supervision of young researchers.

Priority is given to OIKOS doctoral students and those who did not have the opportunity to follow course(s) on palaeography before. Registration closes by the final deadline of March 1st, 2023. Successful applicants will be notified soon afterwards.

    Workshop on Editorial Practices of Byzantine texts

    We would like to draw your attention to a scientific workshop which will be organized in tandem with the Crash Course. This one-day workshop will take place in Ghent immediately following after the Crash Course (Wednesday May 24th) and will be devoted to editorial practices of Byzantine texts. It is organized by Julián Bértola and Floris Bernard (who are also teachers at the Crash Course). Experts will share experiences and insights concerning critical editions of Byzantine texts and manuscripts. The program will be circulated soon. Crash Course participants are warmly invited to stay one day longer in Gent and make use of this opportunity to attend this scholarly conference.
