Macquarie University, Australia organizes a conference in the framework of the Australian Research Council funded project ‘Knowledge Transfer and Administrative Professionalism in a Pre-Typographic Society: Observing the Scribe at work in Roman and Early Islamic Egypt’.
The conference ‘Observing the Scribe at work in Roman and Early Islamic Egypt’ will bring together specialists in pre-modern societies of the Mediterranean world and adjoining cultures, from the ancient Near East, through the Egyptian and Classical worlds to Byzantium and Renaissance Europe. The papers will contribute to a deeper understanding of the processes that drive the operation of pre-printing cultures, and transmit knowledge and traditions forward in human societies.
The conference will be held at Macquarie University on 27-28 September 2013. Participants are required to register for attendance by 31 August 2013.
