    Description: The Bulletin of the Institute of Classical Studies publishes world-wide research in the whole range of Classical Studies. Recent articles include art history, archaeology, ancient history, military history, and a range of social and economic studies. Studies of language have included the original deciphering of Linear B, and continues with new textual discoveries in papyri. Research in Greek theatre and performance now has the added dimension given by reception studies. As well as established international scholars, BICS has always sought contributions by younger scholars. From 2010, BICS will be published annually in two issues.

Annotation tools now include DDGLC Greek Loanword List
We are pleased to announce the release of our newest versions of some of our natural language processing tools for Coptic which incorporate the lemma list of loanwords developed by the Database and Dictionary of Greek Loanwords in Coptic (DDGLC).

The DDGLC is part of the KELLIA partnership between American and German digital Coptic projects funded by the NEH Office of Digital Humanities and the DFG.  The DDGLC, under the direction of Prof. Dr. Tonio Sebastian Richter, has been building a database of Greek loanwords in Coptic in order to facilitate the study of language contact, language borrowing, and multilingualism in Egypt.


We have integrated the Greek lemma list into our language of origin tagger, tokenizer and morphology analysis, and lemmatizer.

Our online natural language processing web service (which bundles together all of our NLP tools into one web application) also includes this new data from the DDGLC.

The Greek loanword list should greatly increase the accuracy of many of our tools.  If you use them, please let us know how it goes!

We at Coptic SCRIPTORIUM are grateful for this partnership and the generosity of the DDGLC team.

Kitchen's Ramesside Inscriptions and a question

0
0
Recognizing that a vast amount of scholarship is available at any number of file-sharing sites in Russia and elsewhere, and recognizing that a great many colleagues archive their own work in institutional repositories, in Academia.edu, and on their own websites, often in violation of the contracts they have signed with publishers, one wonders how to handle this phenomenon. For instance, the following appeared online at the Internet Archive nearly three years ago.  It's a poorly scanned version of what seems to be a photocopy of the poorly (but very expensively) published original eight volumes of this project. I've seen links to it on many Egyptological book-lists and websites, but I have not linked to it before.

    I came across the rich Classical Ethiopic corpus in the course of my doctoral research and was immediately taken with Ge'ez language. There are very few resources on the language and this blog is a step to remedy that by providing an easier entry-point for other Ge'ez-aficionados! I hope you find it helpful in your work and I invite your corrections and suggestions for improvement.

    From Pierre BRIANT
    Achemenet-news (February 19 2016 )

    The Achemenet program (including colloquiums, the ARTA journal online, the Persika collection, the publication of corpus, the website www.achemenet.com, etc.) was founded by Pierre Briant in 2000 and developed at the Collège de France between 2000 and 2012. During the summer of 2012 (at the time when Pierre Briant retired) a convention was signed between the Collège de France and the Louvre Museum, which allowed for the transfer of the program to the department of ‘Antiquités Orientales’ at the Museum (AO).

    Until October 2015, the program developed as planned, within the framework of cooperation between the department (AO) and the signatories within the editorial committee of Achemenet, which expanded to include two conservators from the AO. In October 2015, the new direction of the Louvre Museum and of the AO modified their policies and decided to revoke the 2012 convention. As a consequence, since the beginning of November 2015 and for the last four months the expert-researchers have been incapacitated to participate in the development of the program. Therefore the announcements published online on achemenet.com since that date, no longer represent decisions made by the Achemenet researchers. The same applies for the organisation of a colloquium on Achaemenid Anatolia on February 29 at the Louvre.

    Following letters of protests from the researchers sent to the director of the Museum, the latter has ‘offered’ two options to the scientific team:

         --first, to remain at the Louvre but losing the capacity to determine Achemenet policy, and losing two crucial and well-known resources, since  Persika and ARTA are judged by the Director not complying with the Louvre policy;
        --or second, to leave the Louvre with the entire program.

    Coerced and forced, the scientific researchers have opted for the second option, the only viable solution to guarantee the independence of scientific research on the short and long term. This decision was communicated to the director of the Louvre Museum with a letter dated to January 12 2016. He acknowledged the decision with a reply on February 4 2016.

    Hence, in the coming weeks the entire program will be transferred to the ARSCAN laboratory (Paris-Nanterre) directed by Francis Joannès (http://www.mae.u-paris10.fr/arscan/). Once the situation stabilizes, the new details of the program will be communicated to the scientific community.

    From today onwards, please be reassured that ARTA and Persika will continue to remain well and alive. Any article or book proposal can be addressed to Pierre Briant (p.briant@wanadoo.fr) or to Damien Agut (damien.agut@gmail.com), and the same applies for any communication about the Achemenet program that can be sent to any of those two addresses.

    The signatories would like to graciously thank the international scientific community for its involvement and active participation in the past years, and also thank its members in advance for their support during the difficult times that the Achemenet program is currently undergoing.

    Signatories: Pierre Briant; Damien Agut; Rémy Boucharlat; Francis Joannès; Kevin Tréhuédic.

    Why the Classics Matter
    February 21, 2016 
    There's a lot of handwringing these days about the American Empire. Is it doomed to come crashing down the way the Roman Empire did? We'll find some unexpected lessons from Ancient Rome and even earlier, the collapse of Bronze Age civilization. We also celebrate the wisdom of the ancient classics, and hear how one philosopher teaches Plato to Palestinian students.

    1. "Every Empire Eventually Falls"

      National security, civil liberties, terrorism...those issues obsessed Romans 2,000 years ago just as they obsess us today. Renowned classicist Mary Beard says we have lots to learn from Ancient Rome, including insights into how empires rise and fall.
    2. Dangerous Idea: Latin Can Save Your Life

      Princeton historian Anthony Grafton explains how learning conversational Latin inspired his students. 
    3. When Civilization Collapsed

      A sophisticated global world of trade and diplomacy flourished 3,000 years ago - stretching from Egypt to Babylon- and then came crashing down. Archeologist Eric Cline says a "perfect storm" of calamaties led to the collapse of the Late Bronze Age. He points out that we face many of the same challenges today.
    4. Reclaiming Ancient Virtues

      Have we lost sight of ancient virtues like courage, compassion and truth?  Mark Edmundson thinks we have, and he says we'd do well to read Homer, Plato and the ancient sages.
    5. Plato in Palestine

      Carlos Fraenkel wanted to take philosophy out into the streets, so he met with students at Palestinian and Egyptian universities, and found that Plato, Maimonides and other great philosophers can open up a culture of conversation and debate.

    The Inscriptions of Israel/Palestine
    Inscriptions of Israel Palestine
    The Inscriptions of Israel/Palestine project seeks to collect and make accessible over the Web all of the previously published inscriptions (and their English translations) of Israel/Palestine from the Persian period through the Islamic conquest (ca. 500 BCE - 640 CE). There are about 15,000 of these inscriptions, written primarily in Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek and Latin, by Jews, Christians, Greeks, and Romans. They range from imperial declarations on monumental architecture to notices of donations in synagogues to humble names scratched on ossuaries, and include everything in between.

    There are approximately 1,500 inscriptions currently in the database, with more added regularly. These inscriptions can be accessed via the "Search" Button on the left. 

    Inscriptions of Israel/Palestine is an ongoing project at Brown University. It has been generously supported by the Center of Digital Scholarship and the Office of the Vice President of Research at Brown University. We welcome your feedback.

    Tesserae 

    Jerome’s Vulgate is now available for Tesserae searches, either as full text or by individual book.
    Our text, taken from Perseus, lacked the punctuation Tesserae needs to determine phrases in prose. We have added semicolons at the end of each verse so that verse functions as the Vulgate’s primary phrase unit. When the Vulgate is compared to a work of poetry, Tesserae also reads the poetry by phrase (rather than by line). We welcome comments and suggestions, and anticipate intriguing results. Happy searching,

    Paideia's Living Latin and Living Greek blogs provide interesting, intermediate content in Latin and ancient Greek to help bridge the gap between textbook Latin and classical authors. With the conviction that in language learning an appeal must be made first and foremost to the ears, every post is accompanied by an audio recording. The reader is advised first to make use of our Chromium browser-based dictionary to read each post, then to listen and reread until the audio can be understood without the text.
