International Symposium in Lyon
February 20th and 21st, 2015

In Jordan, Lebanon and Syria, Greek and Latin epigraphy have experienced a significant development in recent years. Between 2008 and 2014, six volumes have been published in the series of the Inscriptions grecques et latines de la Syrie (IGLS XI; IGLS XXI.5; IGLS XIII.2; IGLS XVII.1; IGLS XV.1–2), as well as a Choix d’inscriptions grecques et latines de la Syrie (2009) intended to a wider public. The first volume of the IGLS series had been published in 1929. Since then the programme has evolved considerably. Separate projects and other publications of epigraphical corpora have also contributed to the progress of epigraphy in the various languages which were used in the Near East in Antiquity. The conference will be an opportunity to assess the present progress and to bring together researchers working in the same areas in order to strengthen the scientific network of Near Eastern epigraphy through the presentation of unpublished inscriptions and of epigraphical dossiers.
At a time when the Near East is experiencing unprecedented changes, the scientific activity has had to evolve. In addition, the publication of epigraphical corpora is now conditioned by new physical constraints and benefits considerably from technological innovations. The symposium shall contribute to update ongoing programmes and publishing methods.
To this end, the international symposium will gather in Lyon, around the Directors of Antiquities of Jordan, Lebanon and Syria, the Director of HiSoMA research unit (UMR 5189, CNRS / Lyon 2 University, Maison de l’Orient et de la Méditerranée), also responsible for the IGLS programme, the Directors of the French Institute for the Near East (Ifpo), editor and support of the IGLS series, and the members of the programme, as well as scholars from Europe, the Near East and Australia, for two days on the 20th and 21th of February 2015. The papers presented on this occasion will be compiled into an edition of Syria, Ifpo’s review published in Beirut.

Introducing the EpiDoc Collaborative: TEI XML and tools for encoding classical source texts
Training workshop attached to the Digital Humanities annual conference in Lausanne, Switzerland
Monday, July 7, 2014
Gabriel Bodard, Charlotte Tupman (King’s College London) and Greta Franzini, Simona Stoyanova (University of Leipzig)
Information on the timing and venue of the DH 2014 workshops, and how to book can be found at the conference website.
The programme will begin with a short introduction the history and theoretical basis of EpiDoc, guidelines, schema and related tools for the encoding of epigraphic and other ancient text editions in TEI XML. We will give an overview of the structure of a traditional epigraphic edition, and show how TEI elements are mapped to the semantic distinctions and fields therein. We will continue with further discussion of the Leiden Conventions (rigorous and arbitrary sigla for encoding editorial features of transcribed text in use since 1931) and how we map TEI elements to the semantic features that they represent. The EpiDoc Guidelines and further examples will be shown. Some time will be given for practice throughout. As a self-checking mechanism, students will be shown how to transform their EpiDoc XML files into HTML resembling a conventional edition, using the EpiDoc Example XSLT.

Ancient Citizenship beyond the Assembly
This workshop will examine the ways in which Greek inscriptions illustrate the range of components of ancient citizenship and civic identity, beyond participation in the principal civic institutions. Papers will examine the place in the identity, duties and virtues of a Greek citizen both of the world of civic sub-divisions and associations and of less structured social, cultural and economic interaction. A central aim will be to investigate the different ways in which Greeks conceived of the scope and limits of politics and citizenship, and the relationship between the roles of the citizen inside and outside the assembly. Was the kernel of the Greek ideas and practices of citizenship reflected in inscriptions normally Aristotle’s ‘participation in judging and ruling’, or was it often much broader?
All papers will take place in the Meadows Lecture Theatre, School of History, Classics and Archaeology, University of Edinburgh, William Robertson Wing, Old Medical School, Teviot Place, Edinburgh EH8 9AG.

From Rebecca Benefiel by way of Laura Gawlinski for ASGLE:
The Herculaneum Graffiti Project is pleased to announce its inaugural field program to take place on-site in Herculaneum June 18-27, 2014. Participants will receive hands-on training in studying, measuring, photographing and digitizing ancient wall-inscriptions. They will also directly contribute to international projects that are reediting and digitizing ancient inscriptions (Epigraphic Database Roma) and making cultural heritage more accessible (EAGLE Europeana).
The workshop takes place under the patronage of the International Association of Greek and Latin Epigraphy (AIEGL) and in collaboration with the Herculaneum Conservation Project. Please see ancientgraffiti.wlu.edu/hgp for more information.
From Laura Gawlinksi on behalf of ASGLE:
Tomorrow (March 14) is the Open Meeting of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. In addition to a summary of recent work done by the School, there will also be a special presentation by Merle Langdon entitled “Rupestral Inscriptions in the Greek World.” This event will be livestreamed so that even those of us not in Athens can enjoy it. It will also appear on the website about 1 week after the event.
