In collaboration with the Istanbul Research Institute, Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Pera Museum presents the Epigraphy of Weights Workshop for undergraduate and graduate students as part of its Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection. The program, which embraces an interdisciplinary perspective to explore the topics of weight and measures often overlooked in the studies on epigraphy, is designed to provide young researchers working on Ancient History and archaeology with the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge foundation. 

Attendees will enjoy seminars on the science of epigraphy on the first day of the two-day program. The second day of the program will focus on practical work, and the epigraphy of Anatolian weights will be further explored through case studies and workshops.

The Epigraphy of Weights Workshop will be held face-to-face at Istanbul Research Institute. The language of the program is Turkish. The program is free to attend, and students from outside Istanbul must afford accommodation and transportation.
