II Encounters on Epigraphy & Linguistics


Autumn term 2019



The Encounters on Epigraphy & Linguistics aim to promote academic debate in epigraphy and in so doing to improve linguistic research. At the same time, they also aim to implement linguistic investigation, in order to gain a better understanding of epigraphical texts. Another purpose of the Encounters is to disseminate knowledge on ancient languages and societies.

In this framework, attention is focused on the territory of the Roman Empire, specifically on cultural & linguistic varieties and epigraphic habits attested within its borders, from Pre-Roman times to Late Antiquity.


The Encounters, which will be led by renowned international specialists in the fields of both epigraphy and linguistics, are open to students, researchers and anyone else interested.
