Profile of Classical Studies in Hamburg:

In the field of Ancient History the main focus lies on the history of Hellenism, the late Roman Republic and the Imperial Era, in particular the history of the Eastern provinces and the iberian peninsula; furthermore, on the digitalisation of Greek inscriptions in Asia Minor and of historical maps, and on the conceptual design and production of multi-medial knowledge transfers. In the field of Classical Philology, the main focus lies on the ancient theatre, Greco-Roman poetry, ancient science and philosophy, Indo-European studies, Byzantine and modern Greek, and Medieval and neo-Latin literatures, as well as, in connection with the Teuchos centre, manuscript studies, biblio-textual criticism and computer-assisted philological methods. Classical Archaeology is studied at the "Abteilung Archäologie und Kulturgeschichte des antiken Mittelmeerraumes" and is essentially context-oriented. One main focus is the acculturation processes between the Greco-Roman cultures and those of the Ancient Orient and Egypt. This type of archaeology, the so-called “Hamburg School,” is oriented socio-scientifically and anthropologically and includes semiotic, religio-sociological and iconological methods.
