Programm ALT

Ancient Languages and Texts (ALT)

Description

The doctoral program "Ancient Languages and Texts" focuses on the written heritage of ancient cultures which includes literary works as well as documentary texts found in inscriptions and papyri. Also research is carried out into phenomena of mediality such as the interaction between texts and pictorial representations. For this aim, traditional philological methods are being combined with historical and cultural issues. In addition to that, particular emphasis is placed on theories and approaches of modern literary studies and linguistics.

The doctoral program is characterized by a plurality of methods and a wide understanding of ‘text’, while the common interest is directed towards the interdependence of text, culture and knowledge in their historical condition. This approach takes up the successful tradition of literary study of antiquity in Berlin.

Numerous libraries as well as the text corpora and editorial projects of the Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften offer ideal conditions to study and analyse languages and texts from ancient cultures.
