Colloquio Borghesi 2017 “L’iscrizione nascosta”, Bertinoro, 8-10 June 2017
programma Bertinoro 2017
Posted for Efrosyni Boutsikas (to whom queries should be addressed):
We are pleased to announce a Research Seminar and free Epigraphy Masterclass by Dr Dan Dana from the Centre of Anthropology and History of the Ancient World (ANHIMA) of the French National Centre for Scientific Research. The event will be held at the Department of Classical and Archaeological Studies of the University of Kent, on 17-18 May 2017.
The Masterclass is aimed at training PG students on recording inscriptions, interpretation and analysis. It will give insights on techniques and methods applicable across the field of epigraphy.
Below are further details on both events.

Unit 1: Signatures of artisans in ancient Thrace
The analysis of several signatures of artisans in ancient Thrace, on various supports, is relevant for the diffusion of the epigraphic habit, but also meaningful if such documents are reinserted in the context of the circulation of persons, objects and techniques. Accordingly, we may have a glimpse of the activity and the mobility of artisans (both Greek and Thracian) in a space better known thanks to recent investigations.
Unit 2: Natives, Greeks and Romans : the case of a city from Thrace
The choice of an ancient Greek city from Thrace allows to use the considerable evidence of imperial times (mainly epigraphic and iconographic) in order to substitute the common and simple ‘ethnic’ registers or categories by more pertinent questions about epigraphic visibility, regional creations, and particularly processes of mutual adaptation
Everyone is welcome, but please email E.Boutsikas@kent.ac.uk if you are interested in attending the Masterclass as spaces are limited.

Call for Participation
A four-day training workshop on “EpiDoc” will be held in Athens (Greece), from Tuesday, 2 May to Friday, 5 May 2017, at the Academy of Athens. The workshop is organized by the Academy of Athens within the framework of the DARIA-EU project “Humanities at Scale”.
The topic of the training workshop “EpiDoc” will be digital editing of epigraphic and papyrological texts and will focus on the encoding of inscriptions, papyri and other ancient texts. EpiDoc (epidoc.sf.net) is a community of practice and guidance for using TEI XML for the encoding of inscriptions, papyri and other ancient texts. It has been used to publish digital projects including Inscriptions of Aphrodisias and Tripolitania, Duke Databank of Documentary Papyri, Digital Corpus of Literary Papyri, and EAGLE Europeana Project. The workshop will introduce participants to the basics of XML markup and give hands-on experience of tagging textual features and object descriptions, identifying and linking to external person and place authorities, and project workflow and management.
