Greek Epigraphy on Location in Athens
An intensive introduction to Greek epigraphy from the Archaic period to Late Antiquity for MA and PhD Students. Deadline registration 10 October 2017.
The course is primarily intended for MA and PhD students in Classics, Ancient History, Archaeology and Religious Studies, but it is also open to others.
The course is part of the curriculum for Research Ma and PhD students of the National Research School OIKOS. Prior knowledge of Epigraphy is not necessary, but you need to have a basic level of Greek. Individual assignments will be set at the appropriate level of Greek.
This course is an ideal preparation for using inscriptions in your own research for your (Ma or PhD) thesis or for using inscriptions in the classroom. The course will be taught in English. This course can be taken with any level of Greek.

The course starts with 3 introductory workshops in The Netherlands, on several epigraphic genres, as well as on the history and organisation of the discipline. For these you will prepare a small number of Greek texts and read some secondary literature.
