Ägyptologische „Binsen“-Weisheiten III
Forms and functions of editions and palaeographies on ancient Egyptian cursive scripts
Thursday to Saturday, April 7-9, 2016, Plenary hall of the Academy of Sciences and Literature Mainz, Geschwister-Scholl-Str. 2, 55131 Mainz
Many thanks to all participants for the friendly, lively and communicative atmosphere!
The conference built on two previous conferences that took place in Mainz in April 2011 and March 2013, and that were published together in one book in 2015 (Ägyptologische „Binsen“-Weisheiten I–II. Neue Forschungen und Methoden der Hieratistik, now available online). The topics of these conferences were "new impulses for the study of hieratic handwritings" (2011) and the spectrum of "phases, forms, and functions of ancient Egyptian handwritings". The conference in 2016 concerned methodological issues and developments in the publication of editions and palaeographies of handwritten sources. Both hieratic and demotic as well as cursive hieroglyphic texts were included, the complementation of analogue and digital paths was considered and discussed, and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of handwritten sources were integrated.
The aim of the conference was to gain experience in international exchange, to develop perspectives in the discussion of groundbreaking standards for the egyptological study of handwritten sources, and to promote international and interdisciplinary cooperation.
