A Postdoctoral Research Assistant post has arisen at the University of Warwick for the ‘Facilitating Access to Latin inscriptions in Britain’s Oldest Public Museum through Scholarship and Technology’ project, which explores the place of Latin literacy in Britain, the role of inscriptions in writing Roman social history, and the history of the collection and changing attitudes to epigraphy from 1683 to the modern day. Of equal importance is its objective to explore ways in which Latin inscriptions can be used to educate the general public, visitors, and children about the Roman world, using the Ashmolean as a case-study.

The job is 50%FTE, fixed Term Contract for 13 months, based at the Centre for the Study of Ancient Documents/Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.

You will work on the AHRC funded project, Facilitating Access to Latin inscriptions in Britain’s Oldest Public Museum through Scholarship and Technology.

You will create an Epidoc corpus of the Latin inscriptions in the Ashmolean Museum, based upon research carried out by the project’s PI, customizing EpiDoc XSL stylesheets. You will create digital images of the collection of Latin inscriptions in the Ashmolean: to carry out digital photography and Reflectance Transformation Imaging of Latin inscriptions in the Ashmolean Museum; and to integrate these images into the online corpus. You will explore using EpiDoc tools to create resources for the visually impaired. You will help maintain the project’s website. You will assist in in recording and editing project vodcasts.

You will have a PhD or equivalent in a relevant area. You will have a good knowledge of Latin, particularly epigraphy. You will have experience in XML; EpiDoc conversion tools (Crosswalker) and EpiDoc XSL stylesheets. Experience in Reflectance Transformation Imaging and website editing is desirable.

AIEGL Call for a Virtual General Assembly

Filed under: AIEGL,news — Tom Elliott @ 18:26

The following notice, which was recently emailed to current members of the Association Internationale d’Épigraphie Grecque et Latine is reposted here with the permission of AIEGL President Manfred G. Schmidt.

In accordance with Article 6.i of the statutes of AIEGL, the President and Secretary General, with the agreement of the Bureau, call on all active members to take part in a virtual General Assembly (Assemblée générale) in order to vote on an amendment to this very article of our statutes.

The statutes of our association were drawn up more than thirty years ago, when the number of our members was still small and there was no way to communicate via internet. But exactly this means of communication is now an absolute necessity for an international organization such as ours, for which decisions affecting all members should be supported by a broad majority of votes. We ask you therefore very sincerely for your participation and a positive vote on the proposed amendment.

In February the Secretary General will send you a voting form with the text of the amendment as provided in the President’s “New Year’s Letter”, which we ask that you kindly mark (yes or no), sign, and mail (franked or unfranked) before the end of February 2014 to:

Camilla Campedelli
Deputy Secretary General
c/o CORPVS INSCRIPTIONVM LATINARVM
Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften
Jaegerstr. 22/23
D-10117 Berlin
Germany

All votes will be collected and counted by an election commission, according to our procedures. The result will be announced on our homepage as soon as possible.

Many thanks in advance and all the best

Manfred G. Schmidt, AIEGL president
Berlin, January 27th 2014

We invite applications for a 4-day training workshop on digital editing of epigraphic and papyrological texts, to be held in the Institute of Classical Studies, London, April 28-May 1, 2014. The workshop will be taught by Gabriel Bodard (KCL), Simona Stoyanova (Leipzig) and Charlotte Tupman (KCL). There will be no charge for the teaching, but participants will have to arrange their own travel and accommodation.

EpiDoc is a set of guidelines for using TEI XML for the encoding of inscriptions, papyri and other ancient documentary texts. It has been used to publish digital projects including the Inscriptions of Aphrodisias, the US Epigraphy Project, Vindolanda Tablets Online and the Duke Databank of Documentary Papyri. The workshop will introduce participants to the basics of XML markup and give hands-on experience of tagging textual features and object descriptions in TEI, as well as use of the tags-free Papyrological Editor.

No technical skills are required, but a working knowledge of Greek or Latin, epigraphy or papyrology and the Leiden Conventions will be assumed. The workshop is open to participants of all levels, from graduate students to professors or professionals.

To apply for a place on this workshop please email charlotte.tupman@kcl.ac.uk with a brief description of your reason for interest and summarising your relevant skills and background, by Friday, February 21st, 2014.

CFP – ASGLE APA Panel, January 8-11, 2015 New Orleans, Louisiana, Deadline Feb. 1, 2014

Filed under: ASGLE,news — PaulIversen @ 14:45

2015 ASGLE APA Panel
January 8-11, 2015, New Orleans, LA

Inscriptions and Literary Sources
Organized by Paul A. Iversen.

Polybios (12.10.4-12.11.2), in an extended critique of Timaios of Tauromenion, tells us that the Sicilian historian was famous for consulting inscriptions such as dedications, stelai in the back chambers of buildings, and even proxeny decrees on the doorjambs of temples, both to write his history and to criticize his predecessors, or even to correct city records. In keeping with this long tradition of relying upon epigraphical evidence, the Society invites submissions that illuminate the interface between ancient Greek and Latin inscriptions and ancient historical or literary texts. Suitable topics include using contemporary inscriptions to supplement or correct historical texts, or using historical texts to help restore and/or explicate fragmentarily preserved inscriptions, as well as using contemporary inscriptions to improve our understanding of the historical and/or cultural milieu within which literary works, including poetry, were composed.

Abstracts will be evaluated anonymously by the ASGLE Executive Committee and should not be longer than 500 words (bibliography excluded). Please follow the APA Instructions for Individual Abstract Authors and include the ASGLE Abstract Submission Form (found at http://classics.case.edu/asgle/apa-panel/) with your Abstract. The Abstract should be sent electronically as an MS Word file along with a PDF of the ASGLE Abstract Submission Form by February 1, 2014 to: Paul Iversen, Vice-President, ASGLE at paul.iversen(at)cwru.edu. All Greek should either be transliterated or employ a Unicode font. Authors submitting abstracts must be APA members in good standing.
