Appel à participation : “An Introduction to Arabic Papyrology”, IFAO (Le Caire), 17 juillet 2023

Deadline for submission 30th June 2023

The French Institute for Oriental Archaeology in Cairo (Ifao) is pleased to announce a one-day seminar of introduction to Arabic Papyrology, which will take place at the Ifao on July 12th 2023.

The seminar is organized by Abbès Zouache (Ifao), Mathilde Prévost (Ifao), Khaled Younes (University of Sadat City) and Ahmed Nabil (University of Sadat City) with four instructors: Khaled Younes (University of Sadat City), Ahmed Nabil (University of Sadat City), Farouq Bouaziz (University of Tunis) and Ahmad Kamal (Ministry of Antiquities).

The seminar is organized in two sessions. The morning session will consist of a series of lectures, focusing on special topics: the birth and development of Arabic papyrology, its material and objects as well as a review of the collections of papyri worldwide. Several technical issues will be raised, including: evolution of the styles of script (palaeography), interdependence between literary and documentary papyri, topology of texts, systems of dating and measuring, and archaeological context.

The afternoon session will be spent in reading, editing and commenting on original unpublished papyri from the archive of the Ifao. The participants will split into small groups working on one piece together. The technical knowledge treated earlier on in the morning session will be put into practice in a way that encourages first-hand experience with papyri and learning interaction between the participants and the instructors.

This seminar is exclusively conceived for postdoctoral researchers, university staff, students currently preparing their Master or PhD degrees as well as for Egyptian curators and restorers.

Applications (in English) consisting of a letter of motivation and a CV, which details the applicant’s education and working experience ought to be sent at the latest on June 30th,  through the online form (click here to submit)
