SunoikisisDC is a massively collaborative, international and open teaching programme for digital humanities and cultural heritage, delivered roughly at Masters level, which is streamed live and archived indefinitely on Youtube.
The online session consists of two parts; after an introductory part on the history of and objects in the museum's papyrus collection, the concept and structure of the “Turin papyrus online platform” (TPOP) will be presented.
The Papyrus Collection contains around 700 manuscripts and over 17,000 papyrus fragments, documenting more than 3,000 years of material culture written in seven scripts and eight languages. How do we take care of it?
It will be possible to follow the conference in live streaming on the Museum's Youtube channel (also available afterwards).
The Museo Egizio will host the award ceremony for the Turin Papyrus Online Platform (TPOP) project, which was awarded the Heritage Award / Europa Nostra Awards 2020 in the category 'research'.
The presentation is accessible online on the Museum's Facebook channel.
Every month the team explains one of our papyri.
