The "Papyrologisch-Epigraphische Werkstatt" (Workshop for Papyrology and Epigraphy) was launched in 2006 and has established itself as a scholarly discussion forum. It takes place monthly during the lecture period at the Institut für Alte Geschichte, Altertumskunde, Papyrologie und Epigraphik of the University of Vienna on a Monday at 5 pm and is organised jointly with the ÖAI.

Our aim is to offer a cross-disciplinary, open exchange of views for work on documentary sources. Under this premise, the event is not a series of lectures but a workshop in the true sense of the word, in which the presentation of unfinished work (work in progress) is expressly encouraged.

All colleagues – especially diploma and doctoral students – are cordially invited to present their research problems for discussion. Two presentations of 15 minutes each are planned for each session to allow sufficient time for discussion.
