IDEA Financial support for early career scholars participating in the next AIEGL Congress

The International Digital Epigraphy Association (IDEA) has decided to sponsor early career scholars who are going to participate in the next AIEGL Congress that will be held in Bordeaux from 29th August to 2nd September, 2022.

We invite applications from early career scholars who have completed their PhD within the last 15 years (i.e. since 29th August 2007), who are presenting a paper or a poster at the Congress, whose topic is coherent with the scope of IDEA’s activities, as stated in Article 5 of our Charter:

Art. 5 – “The goal of the association is the promotion of the use of advanced methodologies in the research, study, enhancement, and publication of “written monuments,” beginning with those of antiquity, in order to increase knowledge of them at multiple levels of expertise, from that of specialists to that of the occasional tourist.
In order to reach its statutory goals, the association promotes, organizes, and manages conventions, conferences, exhibits (including virtual exhibits), prizes, and training courses (including online courses); it conducts editorial activities; it promotes and supports the maintenance and efficiency of the portal created by the European project EAGLE (European network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy); it participates in and promotes the participation of its members in projects and initiatives, including in collaboration with third parties; it promotes initiatives in the interest of its members; it performs and encourages studies and research; it collects data and news of interest to the activity of its members; it carries out consultations in favor of its members; it more generally carries out all activities useful for the achievement of the goals that the association proposes”.

Applicants should send a short CV, the abstract of their paper or poster and a covering letter to explain how their work fits IDEA’s aims to info@eagle-network.eu.

The financial resources made available by IDEA amount to a total of € 2,000, to be divided among the participants considered eligible for funding. IDEA reserves the right not to distribute the entire sum if there are not enough eligible applications.
The awardees will be selected by the directorial committee on the basis of the adherence of their work to the scope of IDEA’s activities. The winners will be required to join the association. Moreover, they will have to send an attendance certificate after the conference in order to receive the grant.

ENCODE Conference and Training Event – Leuven

Posted on behalf of Tom Gheldof.

From November 2nd -5th, the Research Unit of Ancient History (KU Leuven) hosts an online conference and training workshop on Multilingual and Multicultural Digital Infrastructures for Ancient Written Artefacts. The conference and workshop are part of the Erasmus+ project ENCODE, which is aimed at bridging the existing gap in the teaching/learning domain of ancient writing cultures between the humanistic training and the essential digital competences required for study, research and employment.

The conference will take place on November 2nd and welcomes guest speakers James Cowey (Papyry.info), Kim Pham (MPIWG), Pascal Belouin (RISE & SHINE) and Matthew Munson (Formulae – Litterae – Chartae). Together with organisers Mark Depauw and Tom Gheldof (Trismegistos), they will explain the use and challenges of several digital infrastructures for the research on ancient texts. The full programme, abstracts and timing can be found here. Participation is free of charge, but registration via this link is mandatory.

During the training event from November 3th-5th, several experts on digital research infrastructures will give a workshop. The first day James Cowey (Universität Heidelberg) will learn participants to how to use Papyri.info for editing papyrological texts and Mark Depauw (KU Leuven) will introduce the central search interface of Trismegistos and its textual portals (TM Languages/Scripts and TM Words). The second day Irene Vagionakis (DiSCi, Alma Mater Studiorum Università di Bologna), Pietro Liuzzo (Universität Hamburg), Marta Fogagnolo (DiSCi, Alma Mater Studiorum Università di Bologna), Daria Elagina (Universität Hamburg) will focus on working with digital editions of multilingual sources in TEI. They will introduce participants to XML and TEI with the EpiDoc and Beta Masaheft examples. The third and final day, participants can explore corpus-based methods of learning ancient languages. Toon Van Hal and Reuben Pitts (KU Leuven) will present the multiple possibilities of Pedalion for Ancient Greek (including treebanking and word tools) and CEIPoM, a brand-new digital corpus of the epigraphic languages of ancient Italy (including Latin and the Sabellic languages).

Applying for the training workshop is possible until October 25th, but is limited to a maximum number of 20 participants. Interested and want to learn more about the program? You can find the full program and call for participation via this link.

If you have any questions about the conference or the workshop, please reach out to the local coordinator (Tom.Gheldof@kuleuven.be).

Ronald S. Stroud (1933-2021)

With a very heavy heart, I am writing to report that Ron Stroud, one of the most eminent Greek epigraphists of the last 50 years, passed away after a long illness on October 7, 2021.
The American School of Classical Studies at Athens has set up a tribute page (here).
