This group of inscriptions, dating from Late Antiquity to the Middle Ages and covering a large geographical space from the Iranian plateau to modern day Turkey and Greece, are linked together through the exploration of their performative aspects. The participants of the project’s second workshop contemplated the interaction between the inscriptions the natural and built environment on which they appeared, and the communities who created them and/or read and viewed them.

Among the issues raised were the ways in which graffiti affected the appearance and interpretation of the buildings to which they were affixed, and the audience to whom they appealed. Questions included: Was graffiti a public or private form of writing and how was it meant to be seen? Does its presence subvert other messages of authority conveyed by the building? What are the functions of graffiti inscribed in sacred spaces?

Arts & Humanities Research Council: Each year the AHRC provides approximately £100 million from the Government to support research and postgraduate study in the arts and humanities, from archaeology and English literature to design and dance. In any one year, the AHRC makes approximately 700 research awards and around 1,000 postgraduate awards. Awards are made after a rigorous peer review process, to ensure that only applications of the highest quality are funded. Arts and humanities researchers constitute nearly a quarter of all research-active staff in the higher education sector. The quality and range of research supported by this investment of public funds not only provides social and cultural benefits but also contributes to the economic success of the UK. See Arts & Humanities Research Council website.
