Digital Classicist & Institute of Classical Studies Seminar, Summer 2012

By Simon Mahony, on 25 May 2012

Digital ClassicistThe full programme for the annual Digital Classicist & Institute of Classical Studies Seminar series is available on our 2012 seminar page. As always, abstracts are there in advance and the slides and audiocast will appear soon after each seminar. Previous seminars and other Digital Classicist events (conference panels etc) are on the main seminar page.

Looking through, you will see that most, if not all, range far beyond an interest in the ancient world. Each paper must have an innovative digital component and many incorporate Digital Humanities techniques and methodologies. The series seeks to accommodate broader theoretical consideration of the use of digital technology in Classical Studies. The content should be of interest both to classicists, ancient historians, or archaeologists, and to information scientists or digital humanists, as well as having an academic research agenda relevant to at least one of those fields.

All are welcome; these are public events with no need to book.

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!

Encoding Ancient Documents: London Seminar #4

By Claire L H Warwick, on 2 March 2011

Why is it that there are so many Digital Classicists who do such great reserach? Undoubtedly this is one of those enternal imponderables of DH, but we are lucky enough to have two classicists coming to give a seminar next week as part of the London Seminar in Digital Text and Scholarship series. Charlotte and Gabby will be talking about their work on encoding ancient documents. Do come and join us to hear all about it.
