Forwarded on behalf of the organizers:
We warmly invite you to the Sixth EAGLE International Event Off the beaten track. Epigraphy at borders, which will take place in Bari from Thursday, September 24 to Friday, September 25, 2015.
Hosted by EAGLE (Europeana network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy), it is the sixth in a series of international events planned by this European and international consortium with the support of the Department of Classics and Late Antiquity Studies at the University of Bari “Aldo Moro”.
The aim of this initiative is to create a shared space to discuss the issues addressed in digitizing inscriptions characterised by unusual features in comparison to the usual epigraphic habit. We warmly invite all EAGLE network members to attend this event in order to discuss issues and raise questions about encoding inscriptions different from those labelled as standard, starting from archaic times to the Middle Ages and beyond, even in languages other than Greek and Latin.
We intend to address their peculiarities that are due to specific carriers (material supports) and/or executing techniques, or also to graphic shapes, non-alphabetical signs, and generally visual components relating to the epigraphic texts.
During the event, the EAGLE Portal will be officially launched and presented to the public for the first time, together with the EAGLE Storytelling Application. A training session on how to use the EAGLE Storytelling Application will be offered.
