Three post-doctoral researcher positions, Oxford (‘Crossreads’ ERC grant)

Posted on behalf of Jonathan Prag.

Post-doctoral Researcher (3 posts)

Faculty of Classics, Ioannou Centre for Classical and Byzantine Studies, 66 St Giles, Oxford

Grade 7: £32,817- £40,322 p.a.

The Faculty of Classics invites applications for three Researchers on the ERC Advanced Grant (885040) “Crossreads” reporting to the Principal Investigator Professor Jonathan Prag. Two posts are for a 12 month duration and one post continues into the second year of a 5-year project for a duration of 24 months. Please indicate in your supporting letter which post(s) you would like to be considered for.

‘Crossreads: Text, materiality, and multiculturalism at the crossroads of the ancient Mediterranean’ is a 5-year ERC funded project. Developing and analysing a comprehensive corpus of all the written (epigraphic) documents from the island, the project will offer the first coherent account of the interactions and interplay of linguistic and textual material culture in ancient Sicily over a period of 1,500 years. The project builds upon the initial work of the I.Sicily project (http://sicily.classics.ox.ac.uk/inscriptions/ and https://isicily.org/) and exploits a variety of digital humanities tools and methods. The three posts advertised here are integral to the first work-package, which is intended to complete the development of the comprehensive open-access corpus of epigraphic texts in TEI-EpiDoc, which will in turn underpin the rest of the project.

The successful candidate will have a doctorate, or be close to completion, in a related field; specialist knowledge in the discipline of epigraphic studies and working knowledge of at least one of ancient Greek, Latin or Phoenician.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon BST on Monday 3 August 2020.

CfP: Layout and materiality of writing in ancient documents – Postponed

Posted on behalf of Davide Amendola (Trinity College Dublin), Cristina Carusi (University of Parma), Emilio Rosamilia (Harvard Center for Hellenic Studies, University of Pisa), panel convenors.

Because of the ongoing CoVID crisis, the Coimbra “Conference in Classics & Ancient History” has been postponed to June 22-25, 2021. We remind you that the call for our panel on “Layout and Materiality of Writing in Ancient Documents” (https://cechfluc.wixsite.com/ccah/layoutmateriality) is still open and the new deadline is September 30, 2020.

We thank the many of you who sent us paper proposals so far. Since we have received mostly papyrological proposals, papers dealing with epigraphical documents are particularly welcome.

Best wishes,

Davide Amendola (Trinity College Dublin) [amendold@tcd.ie]

Cristina Carusi (University of Parma) [cristina.carusi@unipr.it]

History of Classical Scholarship (HCS): New issue and first Supplementary Volume (Open Access)

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the publication of the first instalment of HCS Supplementary Volumes, a new Open Access book series: Select Correspondence of Ronald Syme, 1927-1939, edited by Anthony Birley and now available at https://www.hcsjournal.org/ojs/index.php/hcs/issue/view/Supplements

The letters also contain reference to several ancient inscriptions and epigraphic issues.

The series of Supplementary Volumes stems from History of Classical Scholarship, a new Open Access journal that was launched last December, and shares its key ambition: publishing contributions on any aspects of the history of classical studies, in any geographical context, from the Middle Ages to the late twentieth century, covering the whole range of the discipline, from ancient history to literary studies, from epigraphy and numismatics to art history and archaeology, from textual criticism to religious and linguistic studies. Its brief is to host monographs and edited collections on specific aspects of the history of classical scholarship, including the publication of significant items from the archives of classical scholars and the edition of unpublished manuscripts of scholarly significance.

We are also pleased to report the publication of the first three articles of the 2020 issue of HCS:

ROEL KONIJNENDIJK, Who Wrote Kromayer’s Survey of Greek Warfare?
ARNALDO MARCONE, Tra attualizzazione e ‘pentitismo’: Sallustio secondo Concetto Marchesi
IMMACOLATA ERAMO, The Discovery of Aelian’s Tactica Theoria in Italian Humanism

All articles are available at https://www.hcsjournal.org/ojs/index.php/hcs

Submissions to the journal may be sent to the Editors, Lorenzo Calvelli (lorenzoc@unive.it) and Federico Santangelo (federico.santangelo@ncl.ac.uk) at any point during the year. We publish contributions in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. Each submission will undergo a double-blind peer-review process. Accepted papers will be uploaded on the journal’s website as soon as they are ready to be published. Further guidelines for contributors are available at https://www.hcsjournal.org/ojs/index.php/hcs/Submissions_v2

Keep safe – with all good wishes,

Lorenzo Calvelli

Research project on epigraphic spolia (Croatia)

The Croatian Science Foundation (HRZZ) has recently funded a research project on epigraphic spolia titled „The new lives of ancient inscriptions: epigraphic spolia from the territory of central Dalmatia”. The project is led by Dino Demicheli (Department of archaeology, University of Zagreb) and on the project are also included scholars from several other scientific and museum institutions from Croatia and Italy.

The project started in January 2020 and it will last to December 2023. Some of the main project goals are:

– to document all the epigraphic monuments in central Dalmatia (both, in situ and those exposed in museums, collections etc.) which have been attested as spolia;

– to identify to which extent and for what purpose the epigraphic monuments were exploited in reuse and to make the classification of spolia according to the types of use;

– to conduct four archaeological campaigns of Salonitan city walls in search for spolia, since the substantial number of Salonitan inscriptions have been found embedded in city walls;

– to make a digital distributional map of epigraphic spolia on the territory of central Dalmatia;

– to organize an international conference on epigraphic spolia.

For additional information please contact Dino Demicheli at ddemiche@ffzg.hr
