This coming 19 January through 5 February 2021, Indiana University – Bloomington will offer a 3-week, 1 credit introduction to digital epigraphy, to be taught by Hilo Sugita, a former MA student of ours and now a Ph.D. student in Egyptology at Harvard. The course will be offered entirely online and may be taken synchronously or asynchronously.
It is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. Ms. Sugita is highly proficient at digital epigraphy and this promises to be a great course!
