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. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for further information.)

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.

Our goal is to establish an endowment to subvent and continue the program in perpetuum. Through the generosity of its members and friends, ASP has raised a substantial amount towards that goal, but seeks your help to finish the task. If you would like to contribute to the endowment, click here.
