Art History doctoral candidate Brad Hostetler was invited to participate in the Summer Workshop in Byzantine Epigraphy at the British School at Athens, July 14-20. He joined 23 scholars from the UK, Greece, Italy, Germany, Austria and the US and presented his research on inscriptions on portable objects. The Summer Workshop in Byzantine Epigraphy consisted of daily seminars followed by participant-led responses and discussions; practical sessions in museums and excavation sites headed by museum curators and excavation/project directors; workshop presentations by participants; evening lectures by specialists; and two study trips to the Monastery of Hosios Loukas, Boeotia and the Church of the Virgin of Skripou, Orchomenos. The Summer Workshop is the first stage of a greater initiative to promote and advance Byzantine Epigraphy. It aims to provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to define and formulate research questions, carry out rigorous research in the field of Byzantine Epigraphy, and set up introductory courses in the field at their home universities.  Brad’s travel to Athens was supported in part by a grant from the Congress of Graduate Students.
