Dire et vouloir dire dans les arts du langage anciens et tardo-antiques

« Qu’est-ce que le langage et à quoi sert-il ? »
« Qu’est-ce qu’un signe linguistique et en quoi consiste sa signification ? »
« Quels sont les effets que les expressions linguistiques produisent, les contraintes qu’il faut respecter et les précautions qu’il convient de prendre lorsqu’on les utilise ? »
Ce complexe de questions, dont on peut retracer l’origine dans un certain nombre de textes de l’Antiquité, oriente depuis les enjeux fondamentaux de la réflexion sur la nature et le sens des expressions linguistiques ainsi que sur les conditions effectives de leur utilisation. Au fil des débats philosophiques, littéraires et autres, cette compréhension du langage s’est déclinée en une variété de manières d’entendre ce que, pour une expression linguistique ou une suite d’expressions linguistiques données, « signifier » veut dire. Les contributions de ce numéro thématique se sont concentrées sur les idées linguistiques que les auteurs de langue et culture grecque – confrontés, plus ou moins explicitement, à la question « comment penser le langage ? » – ont développées afin de rendre compte du phénomène complexe de la signification comme propriété des signes linguistiques, corrélat d’un contenu de pensée ou encore comme produit d’une pratique réglée d’échanges.

Il proposito di queste pagine è quello di facilitare per quanto possibile lo studio e la conoscenza delle lingue e delle letterature dell'antichità classica. L'utilizzo delle tecnologie messe a disposizione dal web e più in generale dagli strumenti informatici e multimediali potrà risultare utile a chi intenda approfondire lo studio dell'antichità greco-romana in ambito scolastico o per puro interesse culturale.
Nello studio della lingua greca e latina le numerose pagine interattive potranno consentire sia una più agevole visualizzazione dei contenuti che una valutazione del proprio livello di apprendimento.
Una particolare attenzione, almeno nei propositi, è dedicata alla poesia greca e latina ed alla metrica, che della poesia classica costituisce il mezzo espressivo caratterizzante ed essenziale.
Nei limiti del possibile saranno affrontati in un'unica trattazione alcuni argomenti che coinvolgono entrambe le lingue classiche, come appunto la metrica, l'analisi logica e l'analisi del periodo, con esemplificazioni che consentiranno di evidenziare analogie e differenze mediante una visualizzazione sinottica dei vari contenuti.
Data l'ampiezza del progetto tutte le sezioni che costituiscono il sito sono da considerare attualmente in fase di costruzione e pertanto incomplete.
Ringrazio anticipatamente quanti vorranno collaborare con proposte, suggerimenti e segnalazioni di errori o problemi.

Near Eastern Landscapes and Declassified U2 Aerial Imagery

Near Eastern Landscapes and Declassified U2 Aerial Imagery 
Emily Hammer (a1) and Jason Ur (a2)
https://doi.org/10.1017/aap.2018.38
Published online: 12 March 2019

Recently declassified photographs taken by U2 spy planes in the 1950s and 1960s provide an important new source of historical aerial imagery useful for Eurasian archaeology. Like other sources of historical imagery, U2 photos provide a window into the past, before modern agriculture and development destroyed many archaeological sites. U2 imagery is older and in many cases higher resolution than CORONA spy satellite imagery, the other major source of historical imagery for Eurasia, and thus can expand the range of archaeological sites and features that can be studied from an aerial perspective. However, there are significant barriers to finding and retrieving U2 imagery of particular locales, and archaeologists have thus not yet widely used it. In this article, we aim to reduce these barriers by describing the U2 photo dataset and how to access it. We also provide the first spatial index of U2 photos for the Middle East. A brief discussion of archaeological case studies drawn from U2 imagery illustrates its merits and limitations. These case studies include investigations of prehistoric mass-kill hunting traps in eastern Jordan, irrigation systems of the first millennium BC Neo-Assyrian Empire in northern Iraq, and twentieth-century marsh communities in southern Iraq.

Las fotografías tomadas por aviones espía U-2 durante los años 50 y 60, recientemente desclasificadas, son una nueva fuente de imágenes aéreas muy útil para la arqueología euroasiática. Tal como otras fuentes de imágenes históricas, las fotografías de los U-2 son una ventana hacia un pasado antes de la destrucción de muchos sitios arqueológicos a manos de la agricultura y el desarrollo modernos. Las imágenes de los U-2 preceden aquellas tomadas por los satélites espía CORONA, la otra fuente principal de imágenes históricas de Eurasia, y en muchos casos son de más alta resolución. Por lo mismo, expanden el rango de sitios y rasgos arqueológicos que se pueden estudiar desde una perspectiva aérea. Sin embargo, existen obstáculos significativos para conseguir y acceder a imágenes de localidades particulares, y por lo tanto los arqueólogos todavía no acostumbran a valerse de ellas. En este artículo tenemos como meta disminuir estos obstáculos a través de una descripción del conjunto de imágenes de los U-2 y de un método para acceder a ellas. También proveemos el primer índice espacial de fotografías de los U-2 del Medio Oriente. Una breve discusión de casos prácticos usando estas imágenes demuestra sus ventajas y limitaciones. Estos casos incluyen investigaciones de trampas de caza prehistóricas en el este de Jordania, sistemas de irrigación del imperio Neo-asirio del primer milenio a.C. en el norte de Irak y de comunidades del siglo XX que habitaban en los humedales del sur de Irak.

Pyramids & Progress: Belgian expansionism and the making of Egyptology, 1830-1952
Home
In Belgium, Egyptology emerged later than elsewhere in Europe, but once under steam, it went through a rapid growth in the course of the first half of the 20th century. In the 1930s Brussels was occasionally even referred to as ‘the capital of Egyptology’. Pyramids and Progress investigates how this remarkable development unfolded within the context of Belgian industrial and political expansionism towards Egypt, a process that started in the 19th century, almost from the very moment that the Belgian state was created in 1830. At that time, Belgium in all regards aspired to become a player on a global scale. This aspiration not only concerned Congo, which was to become a genuine colony, but areas around the globe. Egypt, with its strategic location in Africa and its fascinating ancient monuments, played a key role.
But what motivated this Belgian interest in Egypt? How did Belgian royalty, politicians, diplomats, industrialists, and intellectuals operate within the expansionist doctrine? And how did the scientific discipline of Egyptology develop in Belgium within this expansionist framework? The personal, institutional, and commercial networks of the different players are investigated, and the question is asked how this led to a climate in which famous Egyptologists like Jean Capart proved able to give their discipline the prominent position it finally acquired in Belgium.

OIP 142. The Great Hypostyle Hall in the Temple of Amun at Karnak

OIP142-Great-Hypostyle-Hall-part3-9781614910275.jpgBy Peter J. Brand, Rosa Erika Feleg, and William J. Murnane

Standing at the heart of Karnak Temple, the Great Hypostyle Hall is a forest of 134 giant sandstone columns enclosed by massive walls. Sety I built the Great Hypostyle Hall ca. 1300 BCE and decorated the northern wing with exquisite bas reliefs. After his death, his successor Ramesses II completed the southern wing mostly in sunk relief. This volume provides full translation, epigraphic analysis, and photographic documentation of the elaborate wall reliefs inside the Hall. This vast trove of ritual art and texts attest to the richness and vitality of Egyptian civilization at the height of its imperial power. The present volume builds upon and serves as a companion to an earlier volume of drawings of the wall scenes made by Harold H. Nelson in the 1950s and edited for publication by William J. Murnane in 1981.

    Abydos Archaeology
    Welcome to Abydos Archaeology: The online journal of the North Abydos Expedition, an archaeological project sponsored jointly by the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University and Princeton University. We tell the story of Abydos, Egypt and its 5,000-year history through archaeological excavation, heritage preservation, archaeological survey, collections management, object conservation, outreach, and publication. We post stories from the field, and the people and communities behind the archaeology, as well as objects from Abydos, both in situ and in museum collections around the world, and images from our archives, covering a half-century of archaeological fieldwork in Egypt. Expedition co-directors, Dr. Matthew Douglas Adams (NYU) and Prof. Deborah Vischak (Princeton), and all of us on the North Abydos Expedition team invite you to browse our gallery of fieldwork, team bios, blog, and Instagram gallery— and to follow, bookmark, like, share, and ENJOY the archaeology of Abydos with us!

    The Votives Project: Offerings to the Gods from Antiquity to the Present
    The Votives Project is a network of people from different backgrounds who study, create or use votive offerings or other related ways of communicating with the divine. It aims to facilitate dialogue between academic disciplines, and between academics and religious ‘practitioners’, and in doing so to develop rich cross-cultural and multi-period understandings of votive material and contexts.
    If you would like to join the Project and/or contribute an article to our blog, please don’t hesitate to contact us by writing to us at the addresses on our Open University webpages (links via our names below). You can also share your photos and ideas on our new Facebook page.

    NGSBA Archaeology (The Nelson Glueck School of Biblical Archaeology)
    ISSN 2227-9008
    NGSBA Archaeology is our platform for presenting the results of our fieldwork. The contents consist mainly of reports on salvage archaeology projects conducted by Y.G. Archaeology under NGSBA oversight. But from time to time reports of our community archaeology and research projects will also be published. We will also accept field reports of projects executed by other organizations. The journal is peer reviewed, edited by David Ilan, the director of the NGSBA, and is overseen by a board of editors. It will appear more or less annually—depending on the quantity of material available for publication—in print and digital form. The digital version can be downloaded from our website for free.

    NGSBA Excavation Preliminary Reports
    ISSN: 2221-9420
    This is our electronic journal which reports the results of our excavations. Some reports concern our community work (Lod and Givat Sher), other reports deal with our research projects (Tel Dan, Tel Arad) and most reports deal with salvage work. The salvage excavations can also be found by site in the contract archaeology section and research excavations and community digs under the excavations tab.
