Summer Institutes in Papyrology

A consortium of eleven universities is hosting a series of intensive programs in papyrology for each of the summers from 2003 to 2115. (See list below.) During this period, the American Society of Papyrologists is seeking to raise a permanent endowment for the program so that the series can be continued indefinitely. (If you would like to contribute to the endowment, click here, or contact the ASP This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The principal objective of the seminars 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 to become active scholars in the field of papyrology. Each seminar has a distinctive linguistic, chronological, or thematic focus, reflecting the interests and available resources of the host institution. Some seminars will involve forms of the Egyptian language and scripts as well as Greek.

The seminars are directed at advanced graduate students and younger faculty in relevant fields, including Classics, Ancient History, Egyptology, Archaeology, Ancient Religions, and Biblical Studies. Approximately 10 participants are chosen for each seminar by the host institution. The programs are intensive and 5-6 weeks long. The faculty normally include both those who regularly teach at the host institution and guest professors from other universities in North America and Europe. ASP provides a certificate to those completing the institute, but the host institutions neither grant credit nor provide a transcript.

Most seminars offer stipends to defray some of the participants' costs. There is no tuition fee.

    Institutions in villages in Egypt
    from the early Roman to the Fatimid period

    King's College London, 3-4 July 2014

    This conference will focus on the study of administrative, economic and social institutions in villages in Egypt from the early Roman period through to the Fatimid period. The aim of the conference is threefold: 1) to assess the role and importance of village institutions in the community; 2) to examine whether and to what extent villages had communal self-awareness; 3) to investigate how institutions (and the very idea of them) changed over time.
    The conference is organised with the...
