New doctoral training programme on Roman inscriptions
What was the role of poetry in everyday culture in Roman times? This is a question that historians, philologists and archaeologists will examine. The EU-funded CARMEN project will train 11 early-stage researchers (ESRs) in the multidisciplinary study of Latin verse inscriptions called 'carmina epigraphica' – texts inscribed on gravestones and other monuments, which document social relations, language development and aesthetics in ancient Rome and its provinces. Within the framework of this four-year project, the ESRs will edit texts, analyse sociolinguistic, aesthetic and gender issues and discuss regional events in textual and material culture. The research will increase the awareness of cultural diversity and encourage the appreciation of popular art. What is more, the project will enable the ESRs to engage in academic research of the highest level.
