The Digital Classicist is a hub for scholars, students, professionals and other interested in the application of digital humanities or computational methods to the study or dissemination of the ancient world(s). This wiki catalogues digital projects and tools of relevance to classicists, guidelines and discussion around technical issues, and events, bibliographies and other developments in the field. A discussion group serves as grist for a list of Frequently Asked Questions. As members of the community provide answers and other suggestions, some of these may graduate into independent wiki articles providing work-in-progress guidelines, or separately published articles or reports.
The scope of the wiki follows the interests and expertise of collaborators, in general, and of the editors, in particular. As a general principle, key sections of the website or summaries of discussions will, where possible, be translated into the major languages of European scholarship: e.g. English, French, German, and Italian.
We seek to encourage the growth of a community of practice, which is open to everyone interested in the topic, regardless of skill or experience in technical matters, and language of contribution. To become a editor of the wiki, please contact one of the administrators. (The "create account" option has been disabled due to spam bots.)

The Digital Classicist is supported by the Department of Digital Humanities at King's College London, the Institute of Classical Studies, University of London, and the Stoa Consortium, University of Kentucky.
