The sixth EAGLE International Event, “Off the Beaten Track. Epigraphy at the Borders” will be held in Bari on September 24-25, 2015.

The aim of this event is to discuss issues and raise questions about encoding inscriptions different from those labelled as standard, starting from archaic times to the Middle Ages and beyond, even in languages other than Greek and Latin. We intend to address their peculiarities that are due to specific carriers (material supports) and/or executing techniques, or also to graphic shapes, non-alphabetical signs, and generally visual components relating to the epigraphic texts.

This initiative is organised by EAGLE (Europeana network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy) and supported by the Department of Classics and Late Antiquity Studies at the University of Bari “Aldo Moro”.

During  the event, the EAGLE Portal will be officially launched and presented to the public for the first time, together with the EAGLE Storytelling Application. A training session on how to use the EAGLE Storytelling Application will be offered.
