Thanks to our friends and partners, this spring our seminars on Greek Epigraphy will run at three public universities in Brazil. Each Wednesday afternoon from February 2 to March 30, students at the Universities of Brasilia, Paraiba, and Sao Paulo will take a journey through the immense inscribed material from Greek antiquity.
Besides learning the traits of the craft, students will engage with primary material on all aspects of life in the Greek world and its periphery: from international agreements to manumissions of former slaves; from honours to artists to royal correspondence; from archaic laws to curse tablets; from funerary epigrams to graffiti; from the earliest specimens of Greek writing to 9th-century cryptic messages; from York to Bahrain, from Huelva to Kandahar, the fascinating world of the inscribed word invites modern students to investigate and contemplate on life, world perceptions, connectivity, and interaction between different communities.
Many thanks again to the organisers, Camila Condilo (Brasilia), Breno Battistin Sebastiani (Sao Paulo), and Priscilla Gontijo Leite (Paraiba) for their help and willingness to make this happen. Great times ahead!
