Digital Classicist seminar series

DCToday I will present my work at the Digital Classicist in London and I thought it would be good to advertise all the other great seminars lined up this season. The full list can be found on their blog and below. You can download my slides of today’s presentation here.

Most talks will deal with digital Roman, Greek or Medieval literary sources. Quite a few, however, consider the crossover between literary and material sources. The Hellespont project is a good example of this, which will be presented by my friends Agnes Thomas and Matteo Romanello with Francesco Mambrini on 9 August. And then there is The Digital Epigraphy and Archaeology Project which will be presented by Eleni Bozia on 12 June. I am also intrigued by Adrian Ryan’s ‘Quantifying stylistic distance between Athenian vase-paintings’, welcoming Athenian vases to the digital age. Another interesting innovative topic is Valeria Vitale’s ontology of 3D visualisation in cultural heritage. All really varied and innovative topics that crosscut conventional disciplinary boundaries. I like it 🙂
