‘Everyday Writing in Graeco-Roman and Late Antique Egypt. A socio-semiotic study of communicative variation’
2 PhD fellowships (four years)
1) Multilingualism: Roman/Late Antique Egypt formed a multi-lingual environment: speakers/writers could choose between four languages (Greek, Latin, Coptic, and at a later stage Arabic), cor­responding to four different scripts. Moreover, speakers/writers could use multiple languages at one and the same time (‘code-switching’), or write one and the same language in multiple scripts (e.g. Greek words/phrases in the Latin alphabet). As a PhD candidate, you will make an inventory of such practices, studying the social motivation that lies behind them.
2) Material aspects of writing: from a material point of view, too, writing displayed extensive variation. For example, writers had the choice between various writing materials (papyrus, but also potsherd, wood, linen, leather and parchment), and could opt for different types of document format (such as the ‘horizontal’ and the ‘vertical’ format). As a PhD candidate, you will investigate which social role such material aspects of writing had to play.

project ‘Connecting the Greeks: Multi-scalar festivals in the Hellenistic world’
Three PhD positions in the field of Greek festivals and athletics
PhD project 1 addresses festivals in the representation of Hellenistic rulers and ruler cult.
PhD project 2 addresses festival network dynamics at a regional level.
[not advertised (yet?): PhD project 3 addresses Rome oriented cults and festivals in the Greek world]
One PhD project addresses this phenomenon at a Panhellenic scale by focusing on festivals involving Hellenistic rulers and ruler cult. This project uses network analysis to interpret the role of these festivals as integral to empire-formation.
The second PhD project addresses festival network dynamics at a regional level. The project charts the developments and fluctuations (lifeline) of regional festivals in the Hellenistic era as a means of establishing regional identity. This project uses both network analysis and agent-based modelling to produce hypotheses on further festival connectivities (catchment areas, festival circuits).

in a team that crosses disciplines, i.e. behaviour and properties of materials and the preservation of archaeologic artefacts. The ability of organic material to adhere to mineral surfaces is of importance in biomineralisation, the processes by which organisms make hard parts such as teeth, bone and shells, and these materials form an important tool for archaeologists in understanding the past. In order to get full benefit of the information trapped in these materials, it is essential to understand the mechanisms that got them there and keep them there.
