By investigating different types of documents, participants will acquire self confidence in approaching autonomously ancient Egyptian writings in Middle Egyptian, especially those written in hieratic.
All courses will be taught by international leading experts with privileged access to current research: Dr. Rune Nyord (Christ’s College, Cambridge); Dr. Antonio Morales (Universidad de Alcalá, Madrid); Dr. Gianluca Miniaci (University of Pisa).
The Summer School “Reading Middle Egyptian Hieratic” is an academic program offered by the University of Pisa.
The objective of the school is to provide strong ability in reading and interpreting ancient Egyptian documents in hieratic and hieroglyphs, beyond basic knowledge. This will be achieved through three different levels:
1) Decoding hieratic script (basic);
2) Intensive practice of reading (hieratic sources) supervised by teachers;
3) Focus on grammar issues related to the Middle Kingdom texts.
