Summer Institute in Papyrology at the Istituto Papirologico “G. Vitelli”


The American Society of Papyrologists and the Istituto Papirologico “G. Vitelli” are sponsoring a summer institute in papyrology for advanced graduate students and junior faculty in ancient studies (classics, history, religious studies, Egyptology, archaeology, and related disciplines).

The institute, which will run in Florence from 1 through 26 July 2024, will focus on documentary papyri from the Roman period in the Papiri della Società Italiana collection housed at the “Vitelli”. The principal objective of the institute 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, if desired, to become active scholars in the field of papyrology. Hands-on experience with original materials will be combined with lectures and assignments addressing historical, methodological, and ethical questions; an orientation to Demotic Studies will also be part of the program. Instruction will be in English.


Admission to the institute is by application. Enrollment is limited to twelve participants.


Applications, which consist of a completed application form, a current curriculum vitae, and two letters of recommendation must be received by 1:00pm (Central European Standard Time) on 3 January 2024.
The application form and the attached documents should be sent to selezioni(AT) Referees should send their letters of recommendation directly to: elena.batzu(AT)
