Epigraphy at APA/AIA 2008

UPDATE: added links to all the abstracts I could find

The following sessions at the joint annual meetings of the American Philological Association and the Archaeological Institute of America look epigraphical:

Friday, 4 January

Saturday, 5 January

  • The Objects of Greek and Latin Epigraphy, sponsored by the American Society of Greek and Latin Epigraphy (Regency B; 9:00 a.m. – noon; Catherine M. Keesling, organizer; evidently no abstracts available online)
    • Inscribing Laws and the Emergence of Monumental Writing in Ancient Greece (Julia Lougovaya, Columbia University)
    • Graffiti Inscriptions on Pottery from Azoria, Crete: Mixed Ethnicities? (William C. West, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)
    • Instructions on Stone: Leges Sacrae on Stone Offering Boxes (Thesauroi) (Isabelle A. Pafford, San Francisco State University)
    • The Uses of Sundials (George W. Houston, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)
    • How to Read an Ossuary Inscription (Jonathan Price, Tel Aviv University)

  • Italian Epigraphy (Columbus Hall IJ; 11:15 a.m. – 1:15 p.m.; Clifford Ando, presider)

I’ll blog later today about geographical space-and-place talks, as well as sessions touching on digital humanities. That will be over at horothesia.
