Department of Egyptology and Assyriology

Andreas Winkler, PostDoc Research Associate 2014-15

Andreas is now at the University of Oxford, Faculty of Oriental Scientists, as Departmental Lecturer in Egyptology and Coptic. Nice for him that he is closer to ‘home’ in Sweden, yet enjoying milder weather! We are pleased to share the news that TWO of his recent proposals have been granted.

The first, "Digital Archive of Coptic Ostraca in Sweden (DACOS)", was granted by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond - The Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences. That was applied for together with Åke Engsheden, the PI, and is a three year project aiming at publishing roughly 300 Coptic ostraca.

The second, also a 3-year project, was with the Swedish Research Council. Andreas remarked he will return to Providence to prepare future proposals, as he wrote both those successful submissions while here at Brown.

Congratulations, Andreas, and you are welcome back anytime.
