Epigraphy.info Workshop V – 2nd Call for Posters

The editors have received the following announcement from the organizers of the fifth workshop of the epigraphy.info community (Leuven and online, November 3rd-6th, 2020):

Dear colleagues,

As we have already announced in our last circular letter, the Leuven workshop will host an E-poster session dedicated to the presentation of new and ongoing projects in the field of Digital Epigraphy.

The E-posters will be displayed in a virtual environment for the whole duration of the workshop; after that you will have the possibility to have them published on the Epigraphy.info website.

E-Posters Guidelines:

E-Posters may include text, images, graphs as well as videos and audio. You can prepare your poster in the format that you find more suitable (PDF, PowerPoint, .mp4, .mpg, avi.).

The only rule is: keep it short!

For PDF you should limit your documentation to a single page (ideally 1080 x 1536 px), PowerPoint presentation should include no more than 3 slides.

The maximum duration of a video is 5 minutes.

Please send us your E-Poster via a file transfer website (like WeTransfer: https://wetransfer.com/ or Smash https://fromsmash.com/).

Be creative!

We want to make our poster session as effective and inclusive as possible: if you have any creative ideas or suggestions about formats or virtual rooms, please send us an email or write in the Google Groups (https://groups.google.com/g/epigraphyinfo) and we will take them into consideration.

Deadline extended:

In order to present a poster, please send a title and a short abstract to our committee by September 25th, 2020 (info@epigraphy.info). By September 30th, 2020 you will receive a notification from the steering committee whether your E-Poster has been accepted. E-Posters should be submitted by October 28th, 2020.

Best wishes,

Mark Depauw, Tom Gheldof and the Epigraphy.info steering committee

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.

Contact Person : Philippa Crowley
Vacancy ID : 146752
Closing Date & Time : 03-Aug-2020 12:00 BST

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]
