    New Open Access Journal: Gorffennol: The Swansea University History and Classics Online Journal and Blog

    Gorffennol: The Swansea University History and Classics Online Journal and Blog
    Gorffennol is the Welsh for Past. It is the online student journal of the History and Classics Department at Swansea University. It will produce two journal issues a year as well as regular blog posts. It is run by an editorial team consisting of 10 students and two members of staff from the Department.

    The online journal will be published biannually and will showcase outstanding student assignments from all subject areas in our Department (hence ‘Past’ as this includes everything from ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome through the Medieval period to the early modern and modern periods).
    There will also be regular blog posts by students and staff on module-specific research. There will be links to it from module Blackboard sites, so our Departmental students can look at what excellent work in particular modules looks like.

    We are grateful for the funding this project has received from the Swansea Academy of Learning and Teaching (SALT). It will work as a pilot project not only to display  excellent student work, but also to help our students increase their career skills by providing them with editorial experience. We hope to open up the journal to all Arts and Humanities students once the pilot stage of this project is over.
    The editorial team are being guided by Dr Evelien Bracke on a weekly basis and have also received a talk by Prof Thomas Jansen (TSD) who coordinates the Student Journal at Trinity Saint David.

    New TLG Search Engine; 73 New Texts

    TLG News
    We are delighted to announce the release of the new Online TLG. Equipped with an expanded search engine and a host of new features (see list below), the new TLG represents a marked change from the earlier version. Canon and text searches have been redesigned and new tools have been added. Included in this release are n-grams and statistical analysis, two research projects that we will continue to develop for years to come. New online lexica have been added as well as vocabulary tools (including flash cards and word lists).
    The new site (http://stephanus.tlg.uci.edu/index.php) requires login registration. It will run concurrently with the previous version to allow users time to explore the new features. Help files are available and video tutorials are coming soon.
    We remain committed to developing tools that enrich scholarship in our fields and we are confident that the new site is a major step in this direction.
    As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions.

    Podcast: Looting the Cradle of Civilization

    Looting the Cradle of Civilization

    February 9, 2015 | Baruch College, CUNY Lecture Series

    Recent satellite images document the scale of destruction from organized looting to thousands of vital archaeological sites in the region known as the “cradle of civilization.” During a lecture at Baruch College, “Looting the Past, Destroying the Future: Revolution, Terrorism, and Archaeology in Egypt and Syria,” Baruch College archaeology professor Anna Boozer and John Jay College of Criminal Justice art crime professor Erin Thompson discuss the damage that looting will have on the cultural heritage for future generations.

    Open Access Corpus Medicorum Graecorum / Latinum

    [First posed in AWOL 24 March 2010. Updated 12 February 2015]

    Corpus Medicorum Graecorum / Latinum
    In der Arbeitsstelle befindet sich eine umfangreiche Sammlung von Filmen und Photokopien von Handschriften antiker medizinischer Texte in griechischer, lateinischer und arabischer Sprache; diese Materialien werden den auswärtigen Mitarbeitern des Vorhabens für ihre Editionsarbeiten zur Verfügung gestellt.
    Die in den Besitz der Arbeitsstelle übergegangenen Teile von Nachlässen renommierter Gelehrter (K. Deichgräber, H. Gossen, G. Helmreich, J. Ilberg, H. Schöne) enthalten Vorarbeiten für Texteditionen unserer Reihen und das Manuskript zu einem nicht publizierten "Lexikon der Naturwissenschaften für das klassische Altertum" in 11 Mappen.
    Die 40 Mappen umfassenden handschriftlichen Materialien, die zur Vorbereitung des Katalogs von H. Diels, Die Handschriften der antiken Ärzte, I. u. II. Teil, 1. Nachtrag, Berlin 1905-1908, dienten, bestehen in Beschreibungen von Handschriften medizinischen Inhalts aus den Beständen zumeist europäischer Bibliotheken.
    Die Handbibliothek des Akademienvorhabens, die systematisch erweitert wird, zählt zu ihren Beständen Textausgaben der antiken medizinischen Autoren vom Beginn des 16. Jahrhunderts bis in die Gegenwart, die dazugehörige Sekundärliteratur, spezielle Arbeiten zur antiken Medizin sowie allgemeine medizinhistorische Darstellungen und medizinische Nachschlagewerke.
    Die in Karteiform angelegte umfassende Bibliographie zur Geschichte der antiken Medizin wird seit 2002 auch in Form einer Datenbank fortgeführt.
    The CMG features an extensive collection of films and photocopies of ancient medical manuscripts in Greek, Latin and Arabic; these materials have been made accessible to foreign project collaborators for use in preparing their editions.

    That portion of the estate of renowned scholars (K. Deichgräber, H. Gossen, G. Helmreich, J. Ilberg, H. Schöne) which has come into the possession of the project office contains preliminary work for the text editions in our series, as well as a manuscript for an unpublished “Lexicon of Sciences for Classical Antiquity”, in 11 folders.

    The 40 folders of extensive handwritten materials that served in the preparation of H. Diels’ catalogue, Die Handschriften der antiken Ärzte, Parts I and II, Supplement 1, Berlin 1905-1908, contain descriptions of medical manuscripts from the collections of predominantly European libraries.

    The library of the Academy project, which is being systemically enlarged, numbers among its holdings text editions of ancient medical authors from the beginning of the 16th century to the present, the corresponding secondary literature, special works on ancient medicine, as well as general medical histories and medical reference books.

    Originally compiled in index card form, the extensive bibliography for the history of ancient medicine has, since 2002, also been maintained as a database.

    Online Publications

    Within the framework of the “Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities”, the CMG is eager to make the results of the project freely available to the scientific community and the general public.
    Consequently, special care should be taken to ensure that unavailable volumes, of which often only few copies are in circulation, be made available once again to the scientific community.
    To this end, the CMG has planned various digital projects:
    1. Online editions
      Under the heading “Online editions”, visitors will find (with the exception of the last CMG volume published, V 5.1), all volumes of the CMG, CML, Suppl. and Suppl. Or. series available for study. These volumes may be selected and browsed through, or opened to a specified page.
    2. Manuscript Catalogue (Diels)
      Under this heading, visitors will find the somewhat outdated, but still authoritative, manuscript catalogue of ancient medical literature made at the Berlin Academy under the leadership of Hermann Diels in preparation for the CMG. The catalogue has been expanded and emended numerous times. The bibliographical details of the published Addenda and Corrigenda may also be viewed here. More precise information regarding the manuscript tradition may be obtained from the printed volumes, or upon inquiry at the project office.
    3. Bibliographies to Hippocrates and Galen (Fichtner)
      In agreement with Gerhard Fichtner (Tübingen) the Project Office makes available PDF-files of the bibliographical reference works for private use.
    4. Editorial guidelines
      The editorial guidelines are currently being revised. Please address all inquiries to the project office.

The Agade list forwards news and information of interest to scholars in biblical studies, Near Eastern studies, Late Antiquity, Judaica, Classics, archaeology, and even broad intellectual history. It is a valuable source of announcements, and these many guilds are in debt to Professor Sasson.

    The Society of Biblical Literature has permission to collect these postings and to archive them. The Current Postings include announcements from the previous day. The Archive includes all prior announcements and will eventually date back to 2010. SBL does not supplement, eliminate, or otherwise emend the number or content of the announcements, and presents them in the order of their delivery.
    So far the archive includes:
    February 2015

    This will of course grow rapidly.

    And note also the Agade Mailing List Archive on Twitter, where 1,0603 postings from Agade (as of today) are archived dating back to July 2011.

    Nomisma.org News

    New Nomisma.org framework has been released
    After much work, the new Nomisma.org framework has been launched into production. Not only is this a major architecture migration (moving the public UI from Apache Cocoon into Orbeon), but a data migration. We have implemented a new data model for IDs that conforms to the Nomisma ontology that Karsten Tolle has been working on for at least two years. IDs have a more stable system of classes that will improve the predictability of queries. There are presently 16 classes by which IDs are defined--most of them in the nmo: (http://nomisma.org/ontology#) namespace, but we are using the W3C Organziation ontology for expressing roles of people and organizations (under foaf:). The ontology is still evolving, but has a carefully curated set of properties and classes that pertain to numismatics. Certain URIs (like nm:mint), will never again be used simultaneously as classes and properties. In fact, all of the URIs that were used as classes and properties have been made instances of nmo:NumismaticTerm. Instances of mints (like Rome or Athens) are an nmo:Mint, and nmo:hasMint is the property to use for linking a coin or coin type to a mint URI. The ontology and data conform to standards established by the semantic web and computer science communities.

    Data dumps from museum collections (like the ANS and Berlin) have been migrated into the Nomisma ontology, as have RDF exports from online type corpora, like OCRE and CRRO. This involved updating Numishare's code to export in the new ontology (see http://nomisma.org/documentation/contribute for example), as well as update SPARQL queries and the XSLT for reading latitude and longitude in the new model for mints. Mints are now reckoned as concepts (carrying the skos:Concept class, as well as nmo:Mint) that may or may not have a spatial feature, linked with geo:location. The object links by the geo:location is a geo:SpatialThing which may either have a latitude and longitude or have geoJSON encapsulated in the osgeo:asGeoJson property. Complex shapes, represented as geoJSON, can be drawn in Nomisma's XForms-based editing interface (powered by Orbeon). geoJSON objects created in OpenLayers in the editing interface are extracted by Javascript and incorporated into the XForms engine.

    The new features of this framework are almost two numerous to mention, but here is a synopsis:

    • IDs are available in their native RDF/XML, but also serialized into Turtle and JSON-LD. IDs for regions that may contain complex geoJSON polygons are exported in geoJSON-LD. These serializations are linked from the ID page. Data dumps of all IDs are available in these three serializations as well.
    • Spatial queries are supported by extending Fuseki to interact with a Solr index.
    • Much improved browse interface allows for additional filtering by roles of people/organizations and sorting. These filters can be applied to the Atom feed as well.
    • Content negotiation is supported for IDs, the SPARQL endpoint, and the browse page. See http://nomisma.org/apis#access for more information about interacting with IDs and Solr. The SPARQL endpoint supports text/html, text/csv, text/plain, application/sparql-results+json, and application/sparql-results+xml.
    • RIC and RRC ids have been deprecated by Nomisma, as OCRE and CRRO maintain up-to-date and better quality versions. HTTP 303 See Other redirects are established for any ID that contains a dcterms:isReplacedBy property that links to something else. See http://nomisma.org/id/rrc-44.5
    • We have begun documenting the model and example SPARQL queries. The documentation will evolve to become more comprehensive in the coming months.
    • The system in general is far more stable and efficient now that RDF/XML has replaced XHTML documents. It reduces the need for additional transformation when delivering web services. More than 90% of HTTP requests for Nomisma content comes from machines (about 30,000 per day).

    Open Access Journal: LEXIS: Rivista di poetica, retorica e comunicazione nella tradizione classica

    [First listed in AWOL 4 November 2009. Updated 13 February 2015]

    LEXIS: Rivista di poetica, retorica e comunicazione nella tradizione classica
    Dalla sua costituzione, avvenuta nel 1988, Lexis dichiara i propri campi d’interesse e finalità di studio nel sottotitolo in frontespizio: Poetica, retorica e comunicazione nel mondo antico; uno speciale riguardo si è dato alla critica dei testi intesa come ermeneutica della tradizione antica e moderna, dove la verifica della componente ideologica delle scuole filologiche privilegia la poetica degli scrittori antichi in rapporto alla rigidità delle scelte di metodo.

    La rivista ha dato voce al lavoro del gruppo di ricerca sul testo di Eschilo, nell’ambito del dottorato internazionale attivato dall’università di Trento in consorzio con Cagliari, Lille III e Paris EHESS, patrocinando i seminari di Cagliari 1998 su “Il testo di Eschilo e le sue interpretazioni” (atti pubblicati in Lexis 17, 1999), Trento 2000, “Ecdotica ed esegesi eschilea” (Lexis 19. 2001), Trento 2002, “Metrica ed ecdotica eschilea” (Lexis 22, 2004) e Trento 2004, ”Eschilo e la tragedia: comunicazione, ecdotica, esegesi” (Lexis 24, 2006).

    Oltre alle uscite periodiche, la rivista ha prodotto nuove collane di volumi. I “Supplementi di Lexis”, iniziati nel 1992, sono pervenuti sotto la direzione di Vittorio Citti e Paolo Mastandrea al numero 46; in questo stesso ambito escono dal 2005 le “Pubblicazioni del Dottorato di ricerca in Filologia e Storia dei Testi dell’Università degli Studi di Trento”;  i “Lexis Research Tools”, diretti da Guido Avezzù, V. Citti e P. Mastandrea, contano nove titoli; aperta di recente è la serie “Classics in the Libraries” diretti da V. Citti, Paolo Eleuteri e P. Mastandrea. La prima collana comprende soprattutto saggi dedicati alla presenza classica nella civiltà letteraria contemporanea, oltre a raccolte di scritti minori di filologi (A. Maddalena, G. Bona, C. Miralles, R.D. Dawe). La seconda collana, iniziata nel 2000, è dedicata agli strumenti di lavoro dell’antichista, come gli studi di analisi formulare del testo di Omero ed Esiodo, condotti da Carlo Odo Pavese e dalla sua scuola veneziana, il Repertory of Conjectures on Sophocles, di L. van Paassen, rivisto e integrato da G. Avezzù e dai suoi collaboratori veronesi, il New Repertory of Conjectures on Aeschylus, a cura di V. Citti e degli allievi dell’Università di Trento.

    I “Classics in the Libraries” prendono avvio nel 2006 con due saggi originali dedicati rispettivamente alla tradizione manoscritta dei Cavalieri di Aristofane e ad una ignota versione cinquecentesca del Prometeo di Eschilo: la collana accompagnerà gli studiosi dei manoscritti medievali in lingua greca e latina, delle antiche edizioni dei classici e in generale alla circolazione e storia dei testi fino all’età moderna.

    A queste collane si aggiunge, dal 2012, "Lexis Ancient Philosophy" diretta Carlos Lévy e da Stefano Maso. Riunisce i titoli di argomento eminentemente filosofico finora pubblicati nei "Supplementi di Lexis" e sipropone di arricchire questo settore accogliendo nuove proposte eselezionandole con l'apporto di un comitato internazionale di revisori.
    L'editore Hakkert, in convenzione con l'Editrice Cafoscarina di Venezia,realizza anche una versione minor dei titoli di questa collana.

    La rivista è sempre uscita a stampa su supporto cartaceo; d’ora in avanti, anche allo scopo di agevolarne la diffusione e l’efficacia di promozione del dibattito scientifico, verranno resi accessibili i numeri pregressi on line.

    Contraintes et réseaux familiaux

    AbstractThe question of the constraint in the familial strategies appears as a good instrument to detect the tensions within the familial networks. It is not easy to know if the constraints has increased at the end of the Antiquity, in the case of the ascetic vocations as the young girls’ kidnappings. The same goes for the conflicts’ intensity. If the resistance of young ascetics against the parental authority appears as a topos of the hagiographical texts, some modern historians see only about it a rhetorical trick and stress on the contrary the strategies of évitement and wait-and-see policy, of the parents as the children. The familial network mobilized on occasions was restricted to the nuclear family and the close collaterals, but the father did not really control all the process, because of the effective wife’s role.
    AbstractEven though during the Roman Republic the pagan Roman aristocrats were used to remind the social origin of a grandfather or great-grandfather to establish their legitimacy, the Christian clerics of the late antique period would brag about their female ancestors to build up a Christian family history. From the mid-fourth century, they sang the praises of all the family members who were said to have deliberately chosen the second conversion, i. e. asceticism and chastity. In 1987, Claude Lepelley asserted that Augustine had no choice but to convert to Christianity in 386, and after him, we shall analyse whether the family members of clerics had other options than to choosesanctum propositum. The network approach was useful as it helps avoiding clerical discourses, that tended to present the second conversion as a purely individual and spiritual path. But these people were inserted into a Christian network that seemed to give them a little latitude. This paper shall examine some families of late-antique Italian and African bishops, including those of Damasus of Rome, Ambrose of Milan, Augustine of Hippo and Gregory the Great.
    AbstractThis study deals with the usurpations which affected the Gallic dioceses during the fifth century and especially on their repercussions on the destiny of the plotters’ progeny and parents. Having in one’s gens a plotter or even a usurper compelled to set up diverse strategies to live down or bowdlerize this embarrassing episod and, at the end, to get back central autorities’ favours and to keep one’s place into the Gallic aristocratic groups. This compromising past had various consequences from one man to the other. After a probationary time, some of them could access leading political offices anew because they had succeeded in repositioning themselves in aristocratic groups and in regaining central power’s trust. Others, less visible in the sources, had less favorable fates since they were excluded from the political scene and from the most influent aristocratic groups. Therefore, this study will try to highlight the variety of such career paths.

    Contraintes comportementales au sein des réseaux

    AbstractThis study looks at books 14 to 16 of Ammianus Marcellinus’ Res Gestae; it investigates the various compulsions that evolve from the social networks of officials under Constantius II between 353 and 357. As a protector domesticus attached to themagister equitum Ursicinus, the Antiochene historian Ammianus is a keen observer, who himself is involved in social interactions at the highest level of the Roman state. Hostile to the Emperor Constantius (337-361) and favorable to his immediate successor Julian (361-363), Ammianus offers us a dedicated and critical perspective on the social networks of the Roman elite. For Ammianus, social coercion results from interactions and behaviour that he considers unjust, inappropriate, and detrimental forgroups of elite individuals, whether they are connected through official hierarchies, family ties, or personal relationships. He argues that cruelty, injustice, and the vices of those in power – Constantius, Gallus and their officials – create fatal compulsions within the networks of social relations.
    AbstractThis article analyses the function of domestic leisure in the “being” and “seeming” of aristocracies of Late Antiquity in the West. In order to outline a new approach to the « ideology of otium », and its importance in belonging to an aristocratic network, this scheduling article seeks to connect the political rhetoric and use of the concept of otium with descriptions of concrete practices of leisure. I would consider domestic leisure as an issue of social and cultural changes of Late Antiquity.

    Contraintes chez les lettrés et les fonctionnaires impériaux 

    AbstractBasing on some 1544 Libanius’letters (dated from 355 to 365 and from 388 to 393) which have come down to us, we can gather information about the relationships between the Antiochian rhetorician, devoted to the civic ideal, and the other members of the Eastern society, sophists, students, civil servants, ministers, princes’ advisors etc. They maintain ties of different kinds, such as friendship, intellectual complicity and common service. But the letters obey strict literary rules, as it is defined by epistolary tracts, and social duties. Due to the interdependance of networks, one needs diplomatic skills and cleverness. The purpose of such networks may be direct (e. g. letters of recommendations), or indirect, glorifying the recipient and shaping the author’s self-image, the henceforth immortal Libanius.
    AbstractThe coercion on religious life exercised by late antique emperors has often been studied from a merely institutional point of view. It should not be forgotten, however, that the emperor was also able to mobilize social networks in order to ensure the enactment of his decisions. Taking as its starting point volumes II and III of theProsopography of the Later Roman Empire by J. R. Martindale, this study will focus on the lay representatives of the emperor. It shows that all the dignitaries and officials were concerned with religious policy. Whilst this confirms the sanctity of the court, acts of religious coercion take on different forms according to the hierarchy of courtiers. In addition, individual religious beliefs and geographical origins played a role in the emperor’s choice of his representative. Finally, we will consider the real failures of imperial power in the field of religious coercion.

    Pouvoirs et contraintes religieuses

    AbstractThis article focuses on the part played by Ambrose of Milan in the construction of an episcopal network in Northern Italy which was supposed to fight against Arianism. To control of these new bishops, whose sees had been recently created, Ambrose took advantage of unequal relations between debtors and creditor produced by the episcopal election. The letters clearly reflect how Ambrose made use of these bishops who were in his debt (Felix of Como, Bassianus of Lodi, Gaudence of Brescia) so as to achieve the objectives of the network. By taking its inspiration from the patronus-cliensrelationship and from the aristocratic amicitia, the ambrosian leadership maintained the cohesion of this network that was a centralized and hierarchical one, though made up of peers from an ecclesiastical point of view.
    AbstractThe Lives of the Eastern Saints by John of Ephesus (507-586) is one of the main sources at our disposal in Syriac language which allows us to know anti-chalcedonian circles. Closely related to the miaphysite sphere, John of Ephesus nevertheless strictly converted to the chalcedonian doctrine the populations of Asia Minor that Justinian had entrusted him to (re) convert. Thus, John of Ephesus gives us both an inner and external outlook upon the miaphysite movement. The pressure is exerted in different ways on the antichalcedonian circles, affecting them at several levels. Following the Concile of Chalcedon (451), whole provinces go over to miaphysitism. The emperors’ policies concerning anti-chalcedonians waver between expressions of Union and periods of coercion and repression, which gradually push miaphysites to organize themselves into networks to survive. The birth of these networks thus depends on the constraints bearing on these communities. One should not forget however the other side of the coin, that is the constraints or obligations that these new networks impose on their members. First of all, we will see how, according to John of Ephesus, the miaphysite network was born under constraints and how the constraints that gradually weighed on the network led to the diversification of the initial network, causing its splitting into several entities and the (re)definition of distinct lines of doctrinal thought. Secondly we will examine the constraints exerted within every community organized as a network, in order to examine what the specificity of the miaphysite identity might be. The study of the link between constraint and network in the Lives of the Eastern Saints by John of Ephesus allows us to consider how a writer presents the elaboration of a network. There still remains to know how far this process of interiorization of the constraints implies a conscious project of propaganda and to what extent John of Ephesus is one of the leading elements in this ideological construction.
    Abstract: Eugippius’ Vita Seuerini features un peculiar model of leadership in the end of the 5th century. Indeed Severinus, though concealing his aristocrat origin and refusing to accept any institutional position, both civil and ecclesiastical, constrains roman ciuesand even Rugi from the cities of Noricum to adopt new religious and social practices (fasting, praying, paying tithe). A careful examination of the document shows that he places himself in the centre of a network, not because he would simply create links with the network members, but because each link he builds allows him to strengthen another link. Thus he manages to give a coercive force to his “advices” by systematically backing them on the intervention of a third party, who clasps the one to whom the order was given in a binding network of constraint.
    Abstract: Could Jewish judges have had a strong hold on their litigants in the context of Roman hegemony? Since the beginning of the Principate, the Roman Legislation had ruled that the ius gladii exclusively belonged to the provincial tribunals. But there was a gap between these official statements and their local application. As recent scholars have pointed out, municipal magistrates and sub-political communities settled disputes not only in minores but also in majores causae, with the use of coercive forces. In Palestine, during the 3rd and the 4th centuries, rabbinic judges seem to have forced defendants to appear in court and to have enforced judgments, even if, as Hayim Lapin suggests, this power was « episodic and rather fragile ». Another question should also be raised, what would have been the power of Jewish judges, other than the rabbis, the patriarchs, who were the leaders of synagogal communities in the provinces? We hold an imperial constitution given in 392 in Constantinople that ruled they were allowed to settle disputes in religious matters. Such a delimitation could not function as an efficient guarantee for the Jewish courts as religious Jewish rules dealt not only with ritual and purity but also with civil and penal matters. Indeed conflicts of laws and jurisdictions persisted after 392, as attested by imperial constitutions from 393 and 398. The actual power of the judges strongly depended on circumstance and in particular on the political relays and social networks they could activate in both the provincial and central administrations.


    Open Access Journal: Kervan: International Journal of Afro-Asiatic Studies

     [First posted in AWOL 4 June 2011. Updated 13 February 2015]
    Kervan: International Journal of Afro-Asiatic Studies
    ISSN: 1825-263X
    Once a caravan could have traveled (at least, ideally) from Farghana to Ghana, uniting Asia and Africa both in this rhyme and in fact, as happened with  Al-Ḥarīrī's characters. A caravan is the flattering metaphor and the emblematic starting off point of this new journal, so enthusiastically wished for by the teachers of the four disciplines - Arabic, Chinese, Japanese and Hindi Languages and Literatures, which are the pillars of the research and teaching of African and Asian cultures at the School of Foreign Languages and Literatures at Turin University. It would certainly be nearsighted (as well as inaccurate) to maintain that there was a need felt for a new scholarly periodical dedicated to all the contributions of Asian and African civilization within the scope of Italian higher education. There is no need to name the illustrious journals that are the pride of our studies in these fields. Nevertheless, it is equally indisputable that this journal could serve a useful function. Kervan is an on-line journal and for that reason it will be free from the restrictions of the availability of publishers, the cost of paper, and the relative uniformity of the number of the pages. Furthermore, on such a versatile platform, there is an almost unlimited opportunity to publish material that would be impossible or too expensive to reproduce in printed copies - films, audio material, and all kinds of photographs.
    The only condition asked of contributors to Kervan (obviously, besides relevant topics) is scholarly depth, which will be guaranteed by our high-level scholarly committee. For everything else, contributors have total freedom of opinion and methodology. Precisely to underline our respect for the freedom of research, the journal does not require that contributors use standard transliterations because we maintain that everything that can be held to be methodologically appropriate and internally coherent has the right to full membership in the scholarly community.
    The editorial board of Kervan is particularly happy that its project is connected with the School of Foreign Languages and Literatures at Turin University. This young Facoltà was founded only several years ago but it is already efficiently organized and open to providing services that answer the needs of today's world better and better. From its founding, the School has placed great faith in the academic disciplines treating Asia and Africa. It has acutely grasped how important for our society it is to promote the scholarly grounded and progressively broader understanding of the peoples and cultures of these two continents. (This insight is something that is not always shared by other institutions.) It is with a sense of justice, gratitude and sincere satisfaction that we would like to write down two names here on page one of issue number one. Paolo Bertinetti, the creator of the Facoltà, was its first dean. Without his tireless commitment Asia and Africa would still be sitting in the academic waiting room here in Turin. Liborio Termine is the happily presiding dean, who has continued to support this field with passionate conviction and dynamic availability.
    We will not illude ourselves that our Kervan will be greeted like the caravan of Rūmī, which we have wanted to place in the heading only because we thought it was good luck. We can wish only that our caravan will contribute to scholarly discourse with dignity and effectiveness and that it will be acknowledged as a serious and reliable instrument by our fellow scholars.

    Hittite Epigraphic Findings In The Ancient Near East

    [First posted in AWOL 30 December 2012, updated 13 February 2015]

    Hittite Epigraphic Findings In The Ancient Near East
    The present web-site has been developed with the purpose of creating a general geographic map of the epigraphic findings belonging to the Hittite Kingdom (1600 – 1150 BC). The findings listed here concern texts, seals, and inscribed objects written either in Akkadic or Hittite. 
    Data come from more than 70 archaeological sites spread over a territory extending from the Western Anatolian coast to the Tigris valley and from the Northern Anatolian coast to the Syro-Lebanese border.
    The web-site and its contents have been created and are currently curated by Dr. Dario Fossati.  
    The page was realized as part of the project "Creazione di una mappa interattiva dei ritrovamenti epigrafici nei siti anatolici e siriani sotto controllo ittita" and has been supervised by Professor Franca Pecchioli Daddi of the University of Florence.  
    It has been part of the research project PRIN 2009 "Modelli di costruzione fisica ed ideologica del territorio e identità culturali: città sacre, santuari, complessi funerari in Siria, Anatolia e Transcaucasia nelle Età del Bronzo e del Ferro", supervised by Professor Stefania Mazzoni.

    Open Access Journal: Ovid, Myth and (Literary) Exile

     [First posted in AWOL 7 April 2011. Updated 14 February 2015 (now only available in the Internet Archive]

    Ovid, Myth and (Literary) Exile
    ISSN 2069-4288
    Ovid, Myth and (Literary) Exile, edited by Adina Ciugureanu, Ludmila Martanovschi and Nicoleta Stanca, was published in 2010 by Ovidius University Press as conference proceedings following the international conference with the same topic held at Ovidius University in September 10-12, 2009.

    The volume, summing up various views on exile and scholarship on Ovid, has been largely appreciated. This has encouraged the editors to obtain an ISSN number and turn it into the first volume of a scholarly journal with the same title. The response of the editorial board to the newly-born periodical has been enthusiastic; therefore, the journal has been set as a yearly publication, both on paper and electronically, starting December 2011.

    The general purpose of the journal Ovid, Myth and (Literary) Exile is to gather new scholarship and research on Ovid’s work and influence on world culture on the one hand, and on exile, whether literary or not, on the other. The journal addresses academics and graduate students, whose research interests are in the area, to approach Ovid’s work as well as the concepts of exile and myth from large cross-cultural and inter-disciplinary paradigms including world literature, history, anthropology, sociology, the history of ideas, geography, politics and other associated fields and disciplines.

    Thus, the 2011 volume of Ovid, Myth and (Literary) Exile will publish articles on exile poetry and fiction, on Ovid’s work, especially the texts written in exile, and, generally, on representations of exile in literary and cultural texts, the politics of exile, ways of (re)writing history and geography from an exilic perspective.

    Deadline for submission: September 1, 2011.
    Ovid, Myth and (Literary) Exile is an Open Access peer-reviewed journal, freely accessible online. Following the Budapest Open Access Initiative definition of "Open Access", the users have the right to "read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link" to the full texts of articles.

    Safaitic Database Online

     [First posted in AWOL 31 July 2012, updated 14 February 2015]

    Safaitic Database Online
    Safaitic is an Ancient North Arabian dialect and script used almost exclusively by nomads in what is now southern Syria, north-eastern Jordan and north and north-western Saudi Arabia. They are conventionally dated to between the first century BC and the fourth century AD and thus are contemporary with the Roman occupation of this region and with Nabataean and Herodian kingdoms. Over 30,000 have been studied so far, but this is only a small sample of what remains to be recorded. They are almost exclusively graffiti but they reveal a great deal about the social structures, daily lives, religion, hopes and fears of the nomads who wrote them, as well as about their relations with the political regimes in the settled regions.

    The Safaitic Database Online is intended to provide transliterations, translations, ancillary information, and, wherever possible, photographs and/or facsimiles of all recorded Safaitic inscriptions. At present, some 28,000 are in the final stages of being entered. As a sample, the AALC website is hosting the Database with some 3300 previously unpublished Safaitic inscriptions recorded by the late Dr Geraldine King during the Basalt Desert Rescue Survey in north-eastern Jordan in 1989. The database is fully searchable and linked to the archive of photographs and facsimiles of the inscriptions. We are most grateful to the John Fell Fund of the University of Oxford for a grant which has made this possible. As soon as more money has been raised to scan the tens of thousands of photographs of the remaining inscriptions, these will be added to the Safaitic Database Online.

    Women Biblical Scholars

    Women Biblical Scholars
    Throughout history women have loved, studied, and taught the scriptures. Unfortunately, many of us have never heard of these biblical scholars and theologians. Often they are left out of history books and classrooms. The goal of this blog is to draw attention to the works of these women and discover what they contribute to our understanding of the biblical text. With greater awareness, this scholarship can shape course curriculum, homilies, public discourse, and academia itself.

    The blog will include profiles, interviews, book reviews, and other means to spotlight women biblical scholars. Of particular interest are Christian and Jewish scholars whose work contributes to the thriving of faith communities and advances helpful discussion of religion in our contemporary world.  If you know of something that should be added to this site, would like to contribute a guest post or help develop the index of scholars please e-mail: women.biblical.scholars@gmail.com.

    La Chronique des activités archéologiques de l’École française de Rome présente des compte-rendus d'opérations archéologiques auxquelles l'École française de Rome est associée ou qui sont conduites par des équipes françaises en Italie, en Afrique du Nord et dans les Balkans. Les responsables des opérations y présentent les résultats préliminaires de leurs recherches archéologiques, de la Préhistoire à la fin du Moyen Âge. La Chronique auparavant publiée au sein des Mélanges de l’École française de Rome fait depuis 2012 l'objet d'une publication propre, électronique et à flux continu.
