Epigraphy of Weights Workshop


December 16 - 17, 2022

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 that are often overlooked in the studies on epigraphy, is designed with a view to providing young researchers working on ancient history and archeology with the necessary theoretical and practical foundation.

Attendees will enjoy seminars on the science of epigraphy on the first day of the two-day program, which consists of seminars and workshops. 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 Pera Museum. The language of the program is Turkish. The program is free to attend and students coming from outside Istanbul have to pay for their own accommodation and transportation.

Pera Museum, in collaboration with Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), is one of the main venues for this year’s 15th Istanbul Biennial from 16 September to 12 November 2017. Through the biennial, we will be sharing detailed information about the artists and the artworks. 

Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907 in Coyoacán, Mexico. Exactly 47 years from now, before she died in the same city and her beloved Mexico, many things would happen; she’d meet Diego Rivera, become a world-renowned artist, and allow many of her fans to dress like her on Halloween.
