A trip to Durham for the Classical Association Conference

By Simon Mahony, on 7 April 2011

Durham is a great University town and I’m looking forward to a trip up there for the 2011 Classical Association Conference. The Digital Classicist community are presenting two panels there this year, one chaired by myself, Teaching and Publication of Classics in the Internet Age, and another, Ancient Space, Linked Data and Digital Research, by a friend and colleague Gabriel Bodard. In addition to the conference itself, Durham Classics and Ancient History are hosting a Digital Classicist Training Day where we will have a morning session looking at and playing with Generic Web Tools and an afternoon one introducing participants to the Papyrological Editor.

It’ll be good to visit the Venerable Bede, Binchester Roman Fort and of course to catch up with the friends and colleagues we only see at conferences.

I hope the weather holds!
