project: Integrating Digital Papyrology (IDP)

Among humanistic fields, papyrology is notably well provided with digital resources for access to primary texts, metadata, and images of the papyri, ostraca, and tablets preserved in Greek, Latin, Arabic, various forms of ancient Egyptian, and several other languages. Over the past couple of years the two most important digital papyrological projects based in North America, the Advanced Papyrological Information System (APIS) and the Duke Databank of Documentary Papyri (DDbDP) have developed plans for integrating and sustaining the two projects.

project: Inscriptions of Roman Cyrenaica (IRCyr)

The project aims to assemble an online corpus of all the material gathered by Prof Joyce Reynolds during her numerous visits to Libya. The project consists in the digitisation of some 2000 inscriptions from Roman Cyrenaica, nearly a third of which have never previously been published. The new corpus will be presented as a series of documents; but it will also link to an online map of Roman Cyrenaica, being prepared as part of the Pleiades project (http://www.unc.edu/awmc/pleiades.html).

project: Inscriptions of Aphrodisias 2007

This is the first edition of the online corpus of the inscriptions of Aphrodisias recorded up to 1994. The editions, translations and commentary are by Joyce Reynolds, Charlotte Roueché and Gabriel Bodard. Inscriptions are marked-up using the EpiDoc electronic editorial conventions developed by Tom Elliott and others. The website and the supporting materials were developed by the Centre for Computing in the Humanities, King's College London. [read more]

project: Cambridge New Greek Lexicon Project

The principal resource is a bilingual Dictionary, from Ancient Greek to English, designed for students of intermediate level and above. It is being composed to take account of the many new textual discoveries made since the last comparable dictionary in 1889, and to provide definitions and translations in modern English which will communicate clearly to contemporary readers. It is also being published as an online resource, so will be widely available to distance-learners. [read more]

project: The geography of knowledge in Assyria and Babylonia, 700-200 BCE: a diachronic comparison of four scholarly libraries

Where is knowledge generated? How does that knowledge replicate and spread? Where is it consumed? Who owns knowledge, and who may access it? Under what circumstances, and in what places, does it flourish or die out? How are its transmission and reception influenced by social and political factors? These are central questions in the history and sociology of science today. [read more]

project: The Online Froissart Project

project: Verbum: the old Latin translation of the gospel of John

The outcome of the project is an edition of the Old Latin manuscripts of John which will replaced the existing Matzkow-Jülicher-Aland volume (1963), to be published electronically in the first instance, and later as an edition of John, with a full apparatus criticus containing the patristic citations in the definitive Institut-Vetus Latina series. The project, freestanding in itself, is also complementary to the International Greek New Testament Project. [read more]

project: Grammatical change in recent English (1961-1991) : a corpus-based investigation

The project's main goal was to investigate recent changes in English grammar during the period 1961-1991. Its secondary goal was to develop a new methodology for tracking changes in the language, using comparable or 'matching' corpora of text samples, and employing tagging software and grammar-sensitive search tools. A third goal was the provision of the part-of-speech tagged matching corpora for general distribution to the research community. [read more]

project: The Anglo-Norman On-line Hub

Phase 1 of the Anglo-Norman On-Line Hub project (2002-2004), funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board under its Resource Enhancement Scheme, had the following aims and objectives: to open up for on-line access significant resources that will advance research into the languages and society of medieval Britain and support university courses across a wide areas of medieval studies; to develop, evaluate, deploy and propagate XML-based technologies that will be of service in many areas of Humanities computing worlwide.

project: Generic tools for linguistic annotation and web-based analysis of literary Sumerian

The GATE/ETCSL project is based at the University of Sheffield and involves collaboration with the Oriental Institute at the University of Oxford. The project will enhance an existing, world-leading computational infrastructure to create generic tools for language researchers annotating and analysing diverse electronic corpora. As a test-bed application, the Electronic Text Corpus of Sumerian Literature (ETCSL) will gain linguistic information to exploit its maximum potential with more wide-ranging and sophisticated analysis.
