The Digital Classicist

http://www.digitalclassicist.org/

The Digital Classicist is a web-based hub for scholars and students interested in the application of humanities computing to research in the ancient and Byzantine worlds. The main purpose of the site is to offer guidelines and suggestions of major technical issues. We shall also provide reports on events, publications (print and electronic), and other developments in the field. Criteria for inclusion will be the interest and expertise of collaborators, in general, and of the editors, in particular.

The main website contains an annotated list of classical and byzantine Projects that utilise computing technology, and links to freely available Tools and Resources of use to scholars engaging in such projects. This website will also publish stable versions of guidelines and reports from the Wiki FAQ: an interactive platform for the building of a Frequently Asked Questions list, with answers and other suggestions offered by members of the community, and collectively authored work-in-progress guidelines and reports. 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 (Bodard | Mahony). (The "create account" option has been disabled due to spam bots.)

The Digital Classicist is hosted by the Centre for Computing in the Humanities at King's College London, and the Stoa Consortium, University of Kentucky.
