  • Founded by Ross Scaife†
  • After Professor Scaife's death in 2008, the Stoa website and all the projects it collects continued to be hosted by the University of Kentucky, but not actively maintained.
  • In 2019, the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World stood up a Reclaim server under the control of Tom Elliott, and migrated most of the static content from the Stoa site.
  • The Stoa blog moved to the Institute of Classical Studies, under the editorship of Gabriel Bodard.


From the Stoa About page (accessed 2019-02-28):

The Stoa Consortium for Electronic Publication in the Humanities was edited since its creation in 1997 by Ross Scaife, Professor of Classics at the University of Kentucky, until 2008. The Stoa exists to serve several purposes: dissemination of news and announcements, mainly via the gateway blog; discussion of best practices via discussion groups and white papers; and publication of experimental on-line projects, many of them subject to scholarly peer review. Open Access to networked scholarship is a bedrock principle for this site. Only the blog is now active, jointly maintained by a consortium of scholars in Classics and Digital Humanities.
