The scientific director of this event is assoc. prof. dr. Joanna Popielska-Grzybowska (Institute of Mediterranean and Oriental Cultures at the Polish Academy of Science). The School’s coordinators are assoc. prof. dr. Maria-Luiza Oancea (University of Bucharest), dr. Cătălin-Ștefan Popa and dr. Ana-Maria Răducan (ISACCL).

The invited guests who will teach at this event are: assoc. Prof. dr.

Ana-Maria Răducan (ISACCL). A section of this programme will be dedicated to the alumni of the first and second editions – MA Valentin Cocan and MA Cristian Șimon (University of Bucharest).

True to his vocation to transmit a global understanding of the historical processes, mentalities and power representations that underpinned these civilisations’ evolution over seven millenia of challenging dynamics – essential elements for the modern identification of solutions for peaceful coexistence, collaboration and development, ISACCL supports through this event the knowledge and the transmission of the source languages and of modern methodologies by which to approach them, and also the promotion of the Classical and Oriental languages in the Romanian academic milieu.

After the previous editions of 2020, titled „Life and Death in Antiquity” (https://institutlevant.ro/en/the-annual-interdisciplinary-school-of-oriental-studies-ancient-greek-and-egyptology/), and of 2021, „Cosmogony or the Myth about the Act of Making the World in Classical and Oriental Literatures” (https://institutlevant.ro/en/the-annual-interdisciplinary-school-of-ancient-greek-egyptology-and-oriental-studies-second-edition-cosmogony-or-the-myth-about-the-act-of-making-the-world-in-classical-and-oriental-literatures/), ISACCL invites to a foray into the representations of time and space in Antiquity through the lens of ancient Greek thinkers, such as Hesiod, Plato, Lucian of Samosata or Fathers of the Church, in Coptic, Byzantine, Syriac and Hebrew languages, and also in the Egyptian religious texts and in the Pyramid Texts.

The School’s activities are free of charge and will be held via Zoom, in English and Romanian, and is addressed to the students, MA and PhD students, and also to other categories of interested persons. They will receive participation diplomas.

For registration and other details please write an email to office@institutlevant.ro and raducan_ana_maria@institutlevant.ro until the 3rd of September 2022.
