Ruey-Lin Chang

Research Fellow (Oxyrhynchus project)


Research interests: Greek papyrology and Egypt; Greek palaeography and ancient books; law and Greek education

In 2010, I finished my PhD in Sciences de l’Antiquité (Classics) at the Université de Strasbourg and my Doktorat (Promotion) in Altertumswissenschaften-Papyrology at the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg. In the same year I joined the Department of Greek and Latin to work on the Oxyrhynchus Papyri Project as part of an AHRC funded project. I enjoy being in touch with various sorts of unedited ancient texts of direct transmission. I enjoy Egypt as well, where I go regularly for scientific missions with bodies such as IFAO.
