Hittite

The Hittite Workshop is dedicated to the study of Hittite, the earliest attested Indo-European language. We will work through Theo van den Hout’s The Elements of Hittite, which provides a sound introduction to the Hittite language. In spring 2023, we will start with a review of the fundamentals of Hittite grammar and then will continue with the reading of intermediate Hittite texts (including, but not limited to, historical annals, literature, and ritual-texts) depending on the interests of participants. This group will be of interest to anyone interested in the Ancient Near East, Classics, and historical linguistics, but it is open to all!
