The Hittite Workshop is dedicated to the study of Hittite, the earliest attested Indo-European language, and the history of ancient Anatolia. This year, we will read and discuss historical, philological and/or archaeological scholarship about Anatolia, depending on the interests of participants. We will also continue to work through Theo van den Hout’s The Elements of Hittite, which provides a sound introduction to the Hittite language. In spring 2024, we will continue with the reading of intermediate Hittite texts (including, but not limited to, historical annals, literature, and ritual-texts). This group will be of interest to anyone interested in the Ancient Near East, Classics, and historical linguistics, but it is open to all!
