The research project Strengthening Research Capacity in the Papyrus Collection of the Oslo University Library has the pleasure of announcing a joint seminar with The Center for the Tebtunis Papyri, The Bankroft Library, University of California, Berkeley.
This project aims at producing scholarly editions of the unpublished texts in The Papyrus Collection of the Oslo University Library. The editors will decipher and translate the texts and will assess their content, context and contribution to modern scholarly debates about literature, language and society in the Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine Egypt. By publishing new primary sources the research work will throw light on ongoing scholarly debates in papyrology and related fields (classical philology, ancient history, history of language, history of science, history of ideas etc.)
