Coptic Scriptorium’s summer adventures

This has been a summer of writing, annotating, and conferencing!

We are winding up our collaborative grant with our German partners (Coptic Old Testament Project, the Thesaurus Linguae Aegyptiae, the DDGLC, and the INTF).  Our German and US PI’s met in Göttingen, Germany, earlier this summer.   We’re working on writing our final reports and exchanging data and technologies.  We’re hoping to publish more annotated texts later this year.

We also have had a series of conference papers, including a paper on one of our collaboration’s proudest achievements, the online Coptic Dictionary.  Here are some of the lectures and conference presentations this summer:
