More information about Joanne Stolk


I am a Greek and Coptic papyrologist and work on new editions of Greek and Coptic documentary papyri from the collections of the Leiden Papyrological Institute, the Ghent University Library and the Oslo University Library. My research focusses on variation and change in the Greek language of the papyri from Egypt. I am particularly interested in scribal mistakes and corrections, scribal education and training, palaeography, literacy, language contact and bilingualism in ancient society.
