Aeneid in JSTOR

Check out this new tool: <>, an openly accessible tool that I’ve recently developed in collaboration with the JSTOR Labs. The idea behind this tool was born out of an online conversation I’ve been having with Ronald Snyder (JSTOR Labs), Neil Coffee, Chris Forstall, Caitlin Diddams and James Gawley — the Tesserae team.

The tool makes it possible to find articles in JSTOR that quote or refer to specific passages of the Aeneid. It currently provides access to some 5,700 articles from which +12,000 references and +11,000 quotations were extracted.

Since this tool is a proof of concept of a new generation of tools for retrieving bibliographic information, any feedback is extremely valuable and very welcome. As any proof of concept, however, it also comes with some limitations, which are listed the FAQ section at <>.

Summer 2017 Workshop Digital Latin Library

The Digital Latin Library project announces a workshop on the preparation of critical editions of Latin texts according to the soon-to-be-released encoding guidelines for the Library of Digital Latin Texts (LDLT), a series of new, born-digital editions to be published under the auspices of the Society for Classical Studies, the Medieval Academy of America, and the Renaissance Society of America. The workshop will be held on the campus of the University of Oklahoma, the DLL’s institutional home, on June 29–30, 2017.

Coming up AUICD Venice 7- 9 September

The AIUCD 2016 conference is devoted to the representation and study of the text under different points of view (resources, analysis, infrastructures), in order to bring together philologists, historians, digital humanists, computational linguists, logicians, computer scientists and software engineers and discuss about the text.

Several contributions regard the Digital Roman Heritage, a.o. about Memorata Poetis, CroALa and Mapping Visions of Rome

Call for papers and posters

Il convegno AIUCD 2016 è dedicato alla rappresentazione e allo studio del testo sotto vari punti di vista (risorse, analisi, infrastrutture di pubblicazione), con lo scopo di far dialogare intorno al testo filologi, storici, umanisti digitali, linguisti computazionali, logici, informatici e ingegneri informatici.

Da un lato le Digital Humanities, oltre alla creazione e al mantenimento di risorse (digitalizzazione, annotazione, etc.), devono prendere in considerazione il modo in cui tali risorse saranno usate.

Dall’altro lato la linguistica computazionale, oltre allo sviluppo di strumenti di analisi (parser, riconoscitori di entità nominate, etc.), deve tener conto della qualità delle risorse su cui far operare tali strumenti.

Further funding for Pelagios

An international collaboration dedicated to identifying and recording geographical references in historical documents is launched 23 February 2016 at the Fitzwilliam Museum, University of Cambridge.

The Pelagios Commons initiative, led by Lancaster University, The Open University, AIT Austrian Institute of Technology, and the Institute of Catalans Studies, will involve over a hundred partners and significantly enhance access to and use of invaluable online historical resources.

The work is funded by US-based Andrew W. Mellon Foundation with two grants totalling $1,264,000.
