DH Awards 2014 – Voting Announcement
Voting for DH Awards is open!

DH Awards 2014 is open for voting at: http://dhawards.org/dhawards2014/voting/ until the end of 28 February 2015. Versions of this announcement in French, Japanese and Spanish are available from the website.

Digital Humanities Awards are a set of entirely open annual awards run as a DH awareness raising activity. The awards are nominated and voted for entirely by the public. These awards are intended to help put interesting DH resources in the spotlight and engage DH users (and general public) in the work of the community. Although the working language of DH Awards is English, nominations may be for any resource in any language. Awards are not specific to geography, language, conference, organization or field of humanities. There is no financial prize associated with these community awards. There were many nominations and the international nominations committee (http://dhawards.org/dhawards2014/committee/) reviewed each nomination. We’re sorry if your nomination was not included, or changed category, all decisions are final once voting opens. Please see http://dhawards.org/dhawards2014/faqs2014/ for this and other frequently asked questions.

Anyone is allowed to vote, yes anyone, but please only vote once.

Open Access Journal: Römisch-germanisches Korrespondenzblatt: Nachrichten für römisch-germanische Altertumsforschung

Römisch-germanisches Korrespondenzblatt: Nachrichten für römisch-germanische Altertumsforschung
Das Römisch-germanische Korrespondenzblatt wurde 1908 von Prof. Dr. Emil Krüger, dem damaligen Direktor des Provinzialmuseums in Trier, herausgegeben. Es war die Fortsetzung des Korrespondenzblatt der Westdeutschen Zeitschrift für Geschichte und Kunst, welches wiederum gleichzeitig das Organ der Historisch-antiquarischen Vereine zu Birkenfeld war.

Entsprechend sind in der Zeitschrift vorrangig Ausgrabungen aus dem westfälischem Raum publiziert worden. Das Römisch-germanische-Korrespondenzblatt erschien in nur neun Ausgaben und wurde bereits 1916 wieder eingestellt.

al-Thurayyā Gazetteer, Ver. 02

al-Thurayyā Gazetteer, Ver. 02
This is our first usable demo of al-Thurayyā Gazetteer. Currently it includes over 2,000 toponyms and almost as many route sections georeferenced from Georgette Cornu’s Atlas du monde arabo-islamique à l'époque classique: IXe-Xe siècles (Leiden: Brill, 1983). The gazetteer is searchable (upper left corner), although English equivalents are not yet included; in other words, look for Dimashq/دمشق, not Damascus.

You can browse the Gazetteer by clicking on any toponym marker. The popup will show the toponym both in Arabic script and transliterated. We are using a slightly modified transliteration system that facilitates conversion between fully transliterated, transliterated, and Arabic forms of toponyms. It should be easily understandable. There may be typos, because of the nature of how the data has been generated, so please, let us know if something should be corrected. The popup also offers a selection of possible sources on a toponym in question. You can check Arabic Sources: currently, al-Samʿānī’s Kitāb al-ansāb and Yāqūt’s Muʿjam al-buldān. Currently, the Gazetteer will only check for exact matches, which means that in some cases there will not be any entry at all, while in other cases there may be more than one and they may refer to other places with the same name. Improving the precision of this lookup is on our to-do list. You can also check if there is information on a toponym in question in Brill's Encyclopaedia of Islam, Pleiades, and Wikipedia.

    eAQUA: Extraktion von strukturiertem Wissen aus Antiken Quellen für die Altertumswissenschaft

    eAQUA: Extraktion von strukturiertem Wissen aus Antiken Quellen für die Altertumswissenschaft
    Ziel des BMBF geförderten Projektes eAQUA (2008-2013) war die Anpassung und Nutzung von Verfahren des Text Mining für altgriechische und lateinische Texte. Algorithmenbasierte Verfahren der Textauswertung werden seit einigen Jahren erfolgreich auch für die Analyse altertumswissenschaftlicher Textcorpora angewendet, aber besonders die Anwendung auf griechische Texte stellt dabei - wegen der Eigenart der altgriechischen Sprache (Abbildung von Akzenten, morphologische Wortbildung, Satzstruktur etc.) - eine Neuheit und auch spezielle Herausforderung dar.

    Im Rahmen der interdisziplinären Zusammenarbeit zwischen altertumswissenschaftlichen Fächern und der Informatik war das Ziel die Gewinnung von neuem strukturierten Wissen aus antiken bzw. frühneuzeitlichen Quellen und die Weiterentwicklung von Werkzeugen aus dem Bereich des Text Mining. Die hier verwendeten Suchmöglichkeiten (Kookkurrenzsuche, Zitationssuche) gehen über die üblichen Suchmöglichkeiten im Rahmen digitaler Bibliotheken hinaus und ermöglichen die Erschließung von Abhängigkeiten, Einflüssen und Transferwegen des Wissens in großem Umfang: Die Kookkurrenzsuche, vorrangig im eAQUA-Teilprojekt Projekt Atthidographen 2008-2011 entwickelt, zeigt semantische Zusammenhänge an, die Zitationssuche, vorrangig im eAQUA-Teilprojekt Platon 2008-2011 entwickelt, listet Textpassagen auf, die Parallelen zwischen einem Werk und dem gesamten Referenzcorpus darstellen. Beide Tools sind seit 2011 erheblich weiterentwickelt worden und werden hier ohne Zugangsbe- oder –einschränkungen zur Anwendung für frei zugängliche Textcorpora zur Verfügung gestellt.

    Looted Heritage: Monitoring the Illicit Antiquities Trade

    [First posted in AWOL 17 February 2012, updated 18 February 2015]

    Looted Heritage: Monitoring the Illicit Antiquities Trade
    "Looted Heritage" is a project of Dr. Shawn Graham, Associate Professor of Digital Humanities at Carleton University in Ottawa Canada.
    This site monitors various social media and regular media feeds for stories and reports about the trade in antiquities, which then get mapped. The more such things are made visible, the better our chances of spotting important trends and developments. It also maps academic work on the problem of the illicit antiquities trade.
    This site also serves as a training ground for some of my students in the Digital Humanities and Digital History at Carleton University.
    This project is not affiliated with the Illicit Antiquities Research Centre at Cambridge University (which is, sadly, closed). The Centre provides some statistics on the nature and scale of the illicit antiquities trade; these statistics date to 1999; the problem has only grown with the wars and disruptions of the past decade:

    Some statistics

    • Italy: 120,000 antiquities seized by police in five years;
    • Italy: 100,000+ Apulian tombs devastated;
    • Niger: in southwest Niger between 50 and 90 per cent of sites have been destroyed by looters;
    • Turkey: more than 560 looters arrested in one year with 10,000 objects in their possession;
    • Cyprus: 60,000 objects looted since 1974;
    • China: catalogues of Sotheby’s sales found in the poor countryside: at least 15,000 sites vandalized, 110,000 illicit cultural objects intercepted in four years;
    • Cambodia: 300 armed bandits surround Angkor Conservation compound, using hand grenades to blow apart the monuments; 93 Buddha heads intercepted in June this year, 342 other objects a month later;
    • Syria: the situation is now so bad a new law has been passed which sends looters to jail for 15 years;
    • Belize: 73 per cent of major sites looted;
    • Guatemala: thieves now so aggressive they even looted from the laboratory at Tikal;
    • Peru: 100,000 tombs looted, half the known sites.
    -Brodie and Watson, http://www.mcdonald.cam.ac.uk/projects/iarc/culturewithoutcontext/issue5/brodie-watson.htm
    Dr. David Gill, Professor of Archaeological Heritage and Head of the Division of Humanities at University Campus Suffolk, has blogged about the problem of looting for many years at Looting Matters. Professor Gill has recently been awarded the Archaeological Institute of America's Public Service Award for his work. I extend my congratulations to Professor Gill, whose blog was in part the inspiration for this crowd-sourced project.
    I invite you to participate by contributing information to this site, because, indeed, looting matters.

    SEAL: Sources of Early Akkadian Literature

    [First posted in AWOL 20 July 2009. Most recently updated 18 February 2015]

    SEAL: Sources of Early Akkadian Literature

    A Text Corpus of Babylonian and Assyrian Literary Texts from the 3rd and 2nd Millennia BCE

    Sources of Early Akkadian Literature is a joint project of the Institute of Archaeology of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Altorientalisches Institut of the University of Leipzig.

    Project Description

    Akkadian, i.e. Babylonian and Assyrian, literature, documented on cuneiform tablets from Ancient Mesopotamia (together with Sumerian and Egyptian literature) forms the oldest written literature of mankind.

    In the 3rd and 2nd Millennia (c. 2400-1100 BCE), Akkadian literature developed many different literary genres: hymns, lamentations, prayers to various gods, incantations against a range of sources of evil, love-lyrics, wisdom literature (proverbs, fables, riddles), as well as long epics and myths - roughly 550 different compositions. Many of these compositions are not yet published in satisfactory modern editions or scattered throughout a large number of publications.

    SEAL ("Sources of Early Akkadian Literature"), which started at 2007, is updated regularly. It aims to compile a complete indexed corpus of Akkadian literary texts from the 3rd and 2nd Millennia BCE, attempting to enable the efficient study of the entire early Akkadian literature in all its philological, literary, and historical aspects.

    Many of the editions in SEAL rely on new collations and photos. (For the moment being, these photos cannot be shown publicly due to restricted copy rights.)

    As part of this project SEAL will publish the corpus in printed form, in monographs within the new series Leipziger Altorientalistische Studien. Several volumes are currently in preparation:
    • N. Wasserman: Old Babylonian Incantations.
    • N. Wasserman: Love Lyrics.
    • M. P. Streck: Old Babylonian Hymns.
    • Elyze Zomer: Middle Babylonian Incantations.
    • J. Fechner will publish a monograph on "Altbabylonische Gottesbriefe" outside the SEAL series.

    Open Access Journal: Revista Numismática OMNI

    [First posted in AWOL 9 December 2012, updated 19 February 2015]

    Revista Numismática OMNI
    ISSN-e: 2104-8363
    La revista OMNI nació en 2009 con el fin de satisfacer una comunidad que desea enriquecer la numismática con lazos históricos y arqueológicos. Este proyecto está dirigido por un comité editorial y un comité científico internacional. Así, en OMNI, los arqueólogos, numismáticos e historiadores se dan cita para asegurar una cohesión de estos dominios hasta ahora fragmentados. 
    La revista OMNI es semestral. Su distribución es internacional, principalmente en los países francófonos e hispanohablantes (incluyendo, pues, la mayoría de los países de América del Sur). Los temas cubiertos por OMNI son muy variados ya que la revista publica trabajos numismáticos con la única condición de que sean originales y validados científicamente por el comité científico (evaluación por los pares, a doble ciego).

    Reading Latin Poetry

    Reading Latin Poetry
    Welcome to the Reading Latin Poetry Podcast. This is a series of podcasts based on reading, translating, analyzing and interpreting Latin poetry. Comments, suggestions and questions are most welcome, and may be sent to readinglatinpoetry@gmail.com 

    The podcast is available on iTunes, and can be found by clicking here or by searching for "reading Latin poetry" in the iTunes store.

    The series begins with selections from the poetry of Catullus. At this stage, I am planning to cover poems 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 22, 25, 30, 31, 39, 42, 43, 45, 49, 51, 57, 70, 72, 75, 76, 78, 83, 84, 85, 87, 92, 97 and 101, as these are the most frequently prescribed texts for study, and contain my personal favorites. However, if there is a poem not on this list that you particularly like, feel free to email me and make a request. I would love to do poem 64, but this would be a Herculean labour, and one which I will either attempt or avoid as the time comes.

    After Catullus, I will most likely turn my attention to Ovid. However, I am also happy to take requests. 

    The text used for Catullus is Mynors' Oxford Classical Text. The commentaries to which I will make reference are Fordyce (1961), Godwin (1999) and Garrison (2004).

    Special thanks go to my friends Erin and Luca from Sullivan & 3rd Design Co., who are amazing people, and do beautiful design work. They did my awesome logo. Check them out!
