The Digital Classicist

Digital Classicist is a new website that aims to bring computing power to where it’s needed in the study of the ancient world:

The project, which is committed to being ongoing and available in the long term, fills a gap in the current academic environment: there are countless important digital research projects in the classics, including many that offer advice and share tools; there are sites that discuss, host, or list such resources (the Stoa, the Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington, Centre for the Study of Ancient Documents in Oxford, EAGLE in Rome, to name but a few); but there is no single platform for scholars and interested experts in the international and polyglot community to discuss problems, share experiences, post news and advice, and go to for help on all matters digital and classical. We shall of course work closely with other organisations and projects that are active in these areas (in particular the Stoa, and other subject communities such as the Digital Medievalist, including specialists in archaeological, historical, and geographical technologies), to avoid excessive overlap and maximise co-operation and collaboration.

If you’re a scholar and want to get involved, or know somebody who would be interested, check out the website here.
