Sent by Finlay McCourt to the Digital Classicist list:
List members may be interested in a new website designed to make available the inscriptions of Athens and Attica in English translation:
It is being launched with translations of the 281 inscribed laws and decrees of Athens, 352/1-322/1 BC, which have recently been edited by Stephen Lambert as IG II3 1, 292-572.
We plan to develop the site, enhancing its functionality and increasing the range of information supplied, and to expand it in due course to include all Attic inscriptions.
(As McCourt points out, there are so far only a handful of inscriptions, in English translation only [no original text], and with only simple search and browse by bibliographical reference as entry points, but hopefully this will develop into a useful resource for historians and students.)
Applications for attendance at the 2013 Ratiaria field school in Bulgaria close on November 30, 2012. Students will participate in the dig and have the opportunity to study Latin epigraphy on-site. From the introduction:
In 2013 the archaeological digs will focus on the discovered in course of the last season decumanus maximius and Temple of Asclepius. Along with practical work at the site the students will gain experience in Latin Epigraphy, Art History, Conservation and Restoration of discovered buildings and artifacts. Several experts in Roman Archaeology will give lectures during the course. In addition the students will have chance to visit some of the best preserved Roman towns in the area (including Bulgaria and neighboring Serbia).

Please find attached a flyer advertising the online publication of a new corpus of Greek and Latin inscriptions, Monumenta Asiae Minoris Antiqua XI: Monuments from Phrygia and Lykaonia.
MAMA XI is a corpus of 387 inscriptions and other ancient monuments, 292 of which are unpublished, from Phrygia and Lykaonia recorded by Sir William Calder (1881-1960) and Dr Michael Ballance (†27 July 2006) in the course of annual expeditions to Asia Minor in 1954-1957. The monuments have been edited with full commentaries and marked-up in xml using EpiDoc electronic editorial conventions by Peter Thonemann with the assistance of Édouard Chiricat and Charles Crowther.
The full corpus was published online on 14 September 2012 at the following address: http://mama.csad.ox.ac.uk/. A print volume will be published later as a Roman Society monograph.
The MAMA XI project has been funded by a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and is based at the Centre for the Study of Ancient Documents in Oxford.

ASSOCIATIONS IN CONTEXT
The importance of religion for understanding ancient associations has long been recognised, and many monographs have focused specifically on cult or religious associations. The aim of this symposium is to go beyond so-called religious associations and assess more generally the role of religion in ancient associative life (with a focus on the eastern part of the Mediterranean, from ca. 300 BC to ca. AD 300). Cultic activities, and other religious aspects, such as theophoric names, seem to have been a central concern to private associations of many different kinds. The term ‘religious association’ is regularly used in scholarship, but its use and applicability need to be critically re-assessed. In an attempt to gain a more nuanced approach and a better understanding regarding the formation, organization and aims of ancient associations, this conference moves beyond the confines of religion. In a series of twenty papers on a variety of themes and locations, we shall reconsider the ways in which associations defined themselves, and examine their behaviour and interactions within the social, cultural, and sacred landscape of Hellenistic and Roman poleis.

Denso di eventi concomitanti, il Congresso berlinese si è articolato ogni giorno in una sessione plenaria, cui sono seguite diverse sessioni tematiche pomeridiane. Punto di partenza è stata la storia dell’epigrafia come disciplina accademica intrecciata strettamente alla temperie politica e culturale di Berlino, le cui tappe ha ripercorso l’intervento iniziale del prof. Stefan Rebenich (University of Bern). Il congresso si è snodato attraverso le varie tematiche tradizionalmente oggetto di studio (http://www.congressus2012.de/kalender/programm.html), che spaziano dall’ambito privato a quello pubblico e riverberano le molteplici sfaccettature delle informazioni veicolate dalle iscrizioni: dalla edilizia pubblica, gli spettacoli, la gestione territoriale, l’esercito, si passa alle iscrizioni in ambito privato, di valenza funeraria, religiosa o anche sapidamente personale (A. Varone, http://www.congressus2012.de/images/kongress/abstracts/abstract_varone.pdf ).
Accanto alla storia dell’indagine epigrafica attraverso le fonti manoscritte, si sono affrontate anche questioni metodologiche e nuovi progetti, quali la riedizione di CIL, V, per non parlare delle iniziative in ambito digitale.
Per il 2012 è tutto: appuntamento a Vienna nel 2017!
