Off the beaten track. Epigraphy at the borders

Bari - Italy, September 24th to 25th, 2015

In the context of the 6th International Event planned by EAGLE (Europeana network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy), the Department of Classics and Late Antiquity Studies of the University of Bari "Aldo Moro" is organising an event entitled "Off the beaten track. Epigraphy at borders”. This event will take place in Bari from Thursday, 24 September to Friday, 25 September 2015.

The aim of this event is 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. 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, will be addressed.


DASI project will also attend the meeting and present the issues and the challenges faced in digitizing ancient South Arabian inscriptions.

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.
