    Skills/Qualifications

    The postdoc will exploit the onomastic sequences attributed to the gods in Greek inscriptions, thus taking part in one of the two areas covered by the project, in a longue durée perspective from 1000 BCE to 400 CE. Applicants are expected to list divine onomastic sequences from Greek epigraphic sources, enter them in a database, investigate them using network analysis and cartography, and analyse them according to their context, as the most efficient indicator of the divine multiple powers and modes of action, as well as their connection to places where humans interact with them. The comparative approach between the Greek world and the Western Semitic world will allow a reappraisal of concepts such as transfer, translation, and adaptation connected to epithets or their translation into images and stories.

    Activities

  • examine epigraphical corpora in Greek;
  • gather the data in a database;
  • analyse the data by combining traditional tools and innovative methods such as network analysis and its visualisation;
  • present research results through original publications (articles and/or monography), in French and English mainly;
  • take active part to the scientific activities of the team: seminars, workshops, conferences, summer schools, etc., and to their organisation;
  • present these results at conferences or seminars outside Toulouse;
  • assure the maintenance of a website with the whole team;
  • take part into research dissemination activities.
