Washington University in St. Louis to host 2018 American Society of Papyrologists' Summer Institute in Papyrology


The American Society of Papyrologists and Washington University are sponsoring a summer institute in papyrology for advanced graduate students and junior faculty in ancient studies (classics, history, religious studies, Egyptology, archaeology, and related disciplines). The institute, which will run in St. Louis, Missouri, from 9 July through 11 August 2018, will focus on the late antique Greek papyri excavated by W. M. Flinders Petrie at al-Bahnasā (the ancient Oxyrhynchus) in 1922. The principal objective of the institute is to provide participants with sufficient instruction and practical experience to enable them to make productive use of texts on papyrus in their research and, if desired, to become active scholars in the field of papyrology.
