Research Webinar on Greek Papyri in the British Library
Instructors: Dr. Rodney Ast and Dr. Lajos Berkes
Date: April 17 - July 10, 2018
Meetings: Tuesdays 16:15 – 17:45
Rodney Ast (Heidelberg University) and Lajos Berkes (Humboldt University - Berlin), in partnership with Peter Toth at the British Library, are offering in Summer Semester 2018 an online seminar on Greek papyri housed in the BL. The aim of the class is to study and describe Greek documents and literature preserved on papyrus. Each participant will be assigned a group of papyri and the resulting descriptions will contribute to the BL’s freely accessible online catalogue. The texts will include published and unpublished documents (mainly letters and receipts), as well as a small number of published literary texts.
The course, which is free of charge, is open to participants of all levels and will be conducted online Tuesdays, 16:15 - 17:45, Central European Time. The first meeting is scheduled for April 17th and the last for July 10th. The language of instruction is English, and good knowledge of Ancient Greek is required. Certificates will be issued upon successful completion of the class.
Those interested in taking part should send a brief statement of interest and CV to Rodney Ast at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is March 30, 2018.
