Second North American Congress of Greek and Latin Epigraphy

The Second North American Congress of Greek and Latin Epigraphy (NACGLE) will be held Monday through Wednesday, January 4-6, 2016, at the University of California, Berkeley. A preliminary program is available here.

The congress, to be held in conjunction with the Joint Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America and the Society for Classical Studies in San Francisco (Wednesday through Saturday, January 6-9, 2016), will be the largest epigraphical event in the world for the year 2016. Building on the successful first NACGLE, which was held in 2011 at San Antonio, TX (click here for the proceedings), we continue our efforts to promote epigraphical studies in North America by inviting an array of young and senior international scholars to present their work to a large audience. The second NACGLE includes parallel sessions on Greek and Roman epigraphy, graffiti, calendars, and digital epigraphy; plenary sessions on new Greek and Latin texts, and one devoted to the epigraphy of Greek religion; and two keynote addresses by Angelos Chaniotis (Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton), and Alison Cooley (University of Warwick).

The congress is sponsored by the Sara B. Aleshire Center for the Study of Greek Epigraphy, the Department of Classics, the Department of History, and the Graduate Group of Ancient History and Mediterranean Archaeology (AHMA) at UC Berkeley, as well as the Townsend Center for the Humanities, under the aegis of the American Society of Greek and Latin Epigraphy (ASGLE). Additional support is offered by the Association Internationale d’Épigraphie Grecque et Latine (AIEGL), and Brill Publishers.
