Radboud summer school on Greek papyrology


The second Radboud summer school on Greek papyrology will be held this summer, this time working on unpublished fragments from the Utrecht University Library. Over the course of a week, the participants will receive lectures and workshops on papyrology, palaeography, and the history of Graeco-Roman Egypt, while in the afternoons they will be working on editions of the unpublished pieces. The students will be tutored throughout the week by Dr Daniela Colomo, Dr Janneke de Jong, and Dr Mark de Kreij. The aim of the summer school is to produce a co-authored article in which we publish the little collection (the results of the 2021 summer school are forthcoming in ZPE). It has proven to be a great opportunity for young scholars with an interest in exploring documentary papyrology and the socio-economic history of Graeco-Roman Egypt. 

 I would ask you to forward this message to any advanced students (normally MA or PhD students, though advanced undergraduate students may apply) who might be interested. Experience in papyrology is not required but a good knowledge of ancient Greek is. The small course (c. 10-15 participants) will be offered on campus in Nijmegen, 3-7 July 2023. If one applies before March 1st, there will be a €50,- discount on the €500,- course fee.
