Guide to Graduate Programs in the Classics

Guide to Graduate Programs in the Classics
The Guide to Graduate Programs in the Classics is a project of the American Philological Association’s Committee on Education.  During the past year the APA has decided to make this resource primarily an electronic publication so that it can be updated more frequently.  As a temporary measure, a list of departments offering graduate programs appears below.  Over the summer we hope to install a new database that will enable departments to submit and change as necessary the detailed information that has traditionally appeared in the Guide, e.g., degrees offered, fees, and areas of faculty expertise.

As you will see, the listing below consists of a table showing which graduate degree(s) in Classics each institution offers, with the name of the institution serving as a link to the relevant department’s web site.  Please send any corrections to this list to apaclassics@sas.upenn.edu, using the subject heading Graduate Program List Update.

Open Access Journal: Clara Rhodos: Studi e materiali pubblicati a cura dell' Istituto Storico-Archeologico di Rodi

Clara Rhodos: Studi e materiali pubblicati a cura dell' Istituto Storico-Archeologico di Rodi
Στη σειρά Clara Rhodos, που αποτελείται από δέκα τόμους και εκδόθηκε από το 1928 έως το 1941, παρουσιάζονται οι έρευνες και οι ανασκαφές στα Δωδεκάνησα, κυρίως στη Ρόδο, την Κω, τη Χάλκη και τη Νίσυρο, κατά τη διάρκεια της Ιταλοκρατίας. Η σειρά αποτελεί έκδοση του ινστιτούτου FERT, που συστήθηκε από τους Ιταλούς αρχαιολόγους το 1927. Μετά την ενσωμάτωση της Δωδεκανήσου στην Ελλάδα το 1948, οι δικαιοδοσίες του FERT μεταβιβάστηκαν στην Ελληνική Αρχαιολογική Υπηρεσία, και συγκεκριμένα στο Αρχαιολογικό και Ιστορικό Ίδρυμα Ρόδου, το οποίο το 2003 μετονομάστηκε σε Αρχαιολογικό Ινστιτούτο Αιγαιακών Σπουδών.

      Open Access Journal: Climate of the Past

      [First posted in AWOL 16 April 2014, updated  27 May 2016]

      Climate of the Past: An Interactive Open Access Journal of the European Geosciences Union
      ISSN 1814-9324
      eISSN 1814-9332

      Climate of the Past (CP) is an international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and discussion of research articles, short communications and review papers on the climate history of the Earth. CP covers all temporal scales of climate change and variability, from geological time through to multidecadal studies of the last century. Studies focussing mainly on present and future climate are not within scope.
      The main subject areas are:

      • reconstructions of past climate based on instrumental and historical data as well as proxy data from marine and terrestrial (including ice) archives;
      • development and validation of new proxies, improvements of the precision and accuracy of proxy data;
      • theoretical and empirical studies of processes in and feedback mechanisms between all climate system components in relation to past climate change on all space and time scales;
      • simulation of past climate and model-based interpretation of palaeo climate data for a better understanding of present and future climate variability and climate change.

      Mapping the Jewish Communities of the Byzantine Empire

      First posted in AWOL 24 April 2013, updated  27 May 2016]

      Mapping the Jewish Communities of the Byzantine Empire
      The project's Web-GIS is now live and accessible at http://www.byzantinejewry.net
      The aim of the project is to map the Jewish presence in the Byzantine empire using GIS (Geographical Information Systems).
      All information (published and unpublished) about the Jewish communities will be gathered and collated.
      The data will be incorporated in a GIS which will be made freely available to the general public on the world-wide-web.
      Researchers and members of the public will be able to create maps according to their own specifications.
      Chronologically, the project will begin in 650. This is soon after the Arab conquest of Egypt, Palestine and Syria when these regions, with their substantial Jewish populations, were permanently separated from the Byzantine empire. The end-date is fixed by the arrival in the region of large numbers of Jewish immigrants from Spain in 1492.
      Geographically, the core areas of Asia Minor, the southern Balkans and the adjacent islands including Crete and Cyprus will be included for the entirety of the period, Byzantine Italy however, will only be covered down to the Norman conquest. Some smaller territories that were only briefly under Byzantine rule may be excluded.

      Online Treasury of Talmudic Manuscripts
      The Jewish National and University Library, David and Fela Shapell Family Digitization Project and the Hebrew University Department of Talmud are happy to present to the public the Online Treasury of Talmudic Manuscripts. This project brings together images of major Talmudic manuscripts from libraries throughout the world.
      The manuscripts are indexed to enable access by standard citation (tractate, daf and amud for the Talmud Bavli, and tractate, chapter and mishna for the Mishna).
      As the manuscripts are entirely in Hebrew and Aramaic, the navigation tools of this site are in Hebrew
      It is best viewed under Microsoft Windows with Microsoft Explorer version 5 or higher.

      Open Access Bibiography: Zenon at the DAI

      [First posted in AWOL 12 July 2009. Updated 28 May 2016]

      ZENON DAI  [Zentraler Online Katalog]
      The DAI compiles some of the most important bibliographies on archaeology:

      Archaeological Bibliography

      Bibliography of the Archaeology of the Iberian Peninsula

      Subject catalogue of the Roman-German Commission

      Bibliography of the Archaeology of Eurasia (completed bibliography)

      You are now able to search through the Archaeological Bibliography free of charge at the website of the DAI.
      Please take a look at our central online catalogue ZENON DAI: opac.dainst.org!

      The Archaeological Bibliography is expanded daily by the departments in Rome, Athens, Istanbul and the head office in Berlin, and it comprises titles collected since 1956 (approx. 400,000 titles).

      As a result of the involvement of the Athens and Istanbul departments in compiling the bibliography (since spring 2006), considerably more Greek and Turkish journals and monographs have been described and made available for research, in view of the holdings of those libraries. The Archaeological Bibliography is being expanded additionally in the following areas: prehistory/Anatolia and among the oriental cultures: Hittites and Urartu.

      In the Archaeological Bibliography you can search for monographs and articles from approx. 2,700 journals and articles from congress reports and festschrifts, etc. The bibliography contains the literature on Graeco-Roman culture and its peripheral cultural and also literature on Etruscan, Minoan and Mycenaean culture, the Anatolian cultures, prehistory and ancient history including epigraphy and numismatics.

      Congress reports are now archived more consistently than before, arranged as a whole and described according to content.

      Festschrifts and publications by several authors are described according to content if they have a unifying theme.

      Reviews are currently not admitted.

      Virtual Magic Bowl Archive

       [First posted in AWOL 17 May 2011. Updated 28 May 2016]

      Virtual Magic Bowl Archive
      The Virtual Magic Bowl Archive (VMBA) is a collaborative project involving scholars from Israel and the United Kingdom.
      The VMBA was initially established by Dr Dan Levene and hosted by the University of Southampton from 2009. In 2014, it was transferred to the University of Exeter, to be continued under the supervision of Dr Siam Bhayro.
      The aim of the VMBA is to provide online resources for those engaged in the study of Aramaic incantation bowls from Sasanian Mesopotamia, perhaps the most important primary source we have for studying the everyday beliefs and practices of the Jewish, Christian, Mandaean, Manichaean, Zoroastrian and Pagan communities on the eve of the Islamic conquests.
      While we envisage more features being added over time, the initial resources will focus on some 650 texts that comprise part of the Schøyen Collection, which are currently being prepared for publication by an international team of scholars under the supervision of Professor Shaul Shaked.
      The first published volume of incantation bowls from the Schøyen Collection is:
      S. Shaked, J.N. Ford and S. Bhayro, Aramaic Bowl Spells: Jewish Babylonian Aramaic Bowls Volume One (Magical and Religious Literature of Late Antiquity 1; Leiden: Brill, 2013)
      For those interested in learning more about the Aramaic incantation bowls, Dr Levene's booklet Curse or Blessing: What's in the Magic Bowl?‌ can be downloaded as a PDF.
      Browse the VMBA photographic archive.
      See also Pre-Islamic Incantation Bowls for details of our research on the Schøyen Collection’s Aramaic incantation bowls.

      Digital Classicist wiki Sprint 31 May

      Digital Classicist wiki Sprint
      As you may recall, the first Tuesday of every month sees interested List members getting together for an hour or two (in so-called online "sprints") to work on improving the content of the Digital Classicist wiki (https://wiki.digitalclassicist.org/). For this month, however, this event is taking place on the last Tuesday, i.e. 31 May, and is dedicated to a particular theme: ancient geography.

      Anyone interested in participating should:

      1. Request (if you don't already have one) an editing account on the wiki, by getting in touch in advance with Gabriel Bodard ([log in to unmask]). 
      2. Join, anytime between 16–18h London time (= 17–19CEST = 11–13EDT = 10–12CDT etc.), the #Digiclass chatroom  (instructions here: https://wiki.digitalclassicist.org/DigiClass_IRC_Channel), where you can work synchronously with colleagues (or by yourself) to edit or create articles in the DigitalClassicist wiki to do with resources on ancient geography - the geospatial data themselves and the tools for analysing them - created or curated by individuals, projects and/or institutions.

      (Of course, you are free to join us to work on other parts of the wiki too!)

      Please do extend this invitation to any interested individuals and parties.

      We look forward to improving our content with you!

      Progetto Sinleqiunnini: Digital Cuneiform Archives

       [First posted in AWOL 17 Mrch 2013, updated 29 My 2016]

      Progetto Sinleqiunnini: Digital Cuneiform Archives


      Sinleqiunnini started as a project of Università degli Studi di Napoli "L'Orientale". The project was later joined by Università Ca' Foscari Venezia and is currently hosted by its server. Funding has been provided by the Italian Ministry of University and Research (MIUR)
      The software has been designed by Francesco Di Filippo, who is in charge of its maintenance in the framework of the research activities promoted by CNR-ISMA (Istituto di Studi sul Mediterraneo Antico).

      Online Databases

      • Ebla Digital Archives

      • The database is intended to include all texts so far published belonging to the 3rd millennium royal archives of Ebla/Tell Mardikh. Texts are reproduced in the same sequence as in the individual volumes of the series Archivi Reali di Ebla – Testi published by the “Italian Archaeological Mission to Syria” of the Sapienza University of Rome. The seven ARET volumes currently included in the database will be gradually followed by other volumes published in the past years and by text editions that have appeared in other series (such as MEE), in monographs or in journals.
      • Middle Euphrates Digital Archive

      • The database includes all Emar texts so far published and collections from: tell Munbaqa, tell Hadidi, tell Faqous, tell el-Qitar, tell Bazi and Umm el-Marra.
      • LiBER | Linear B Electronic Resources

      • LiBER is a CNR-ISMA project which aims at producing an integrated database of Linear B documents, with the ultimate goal of providing scholars, and all those who are interested in the Mycenaean world, with an updated edition of the Linear B documents, along with a new set of search tools. Individual texts are supplied with transcriptions, critical apparatus, photographs as well as, whenever possible, with all the relevant information about findspots, scribes, chronologies, inventory numbers and places of preservation. The database can be searched by series of documents, syllabic sequences, logograms, scribes and findspots, while search results can be displayed both as lists of texts and interactive maps.

      TAY Project - Türkiye Arkeolojik Yerleşmeleri - Archaeological Settlements of Turkey

       [First posted in AWOL 17 March 2013, updated 29 May 2016]

      TAY Project - Türkiye Arkeolojik Yerleşmeleri - Archaeological Settlements of Turkey
      Türkiye Arkeolojik Yerleşmeleri (TAY) Projesi, dünya kültür emanetlerinin önemli bir parçası olan Türkiye kültür varlıklarının bulgularının, kronolojik bir envanterinin çıkartılması ve bu bilginin uluslararası platformda paylaşılması amacına yönelik olarak tasarlanmıştır. En azından 400.000 yıl eskiye uzanan kültürel verileri barındıran Anadolu ve Trakya toprakları üzerinde, 1800'lerin ilk yarısından başlayan araştırmaların sonuçları ile çağdaş yüzey araştırmaları ve kazıların bilgileri dağınık ve çoğunlukla ulaşılamaz durumdadır. Birçok yerleşmenin yeri bilinmemekte, birçoğu da tahribatın/yapılaşmanın kurbanı olmuş ya da olmaktadır. Bu tahribata karşı ve bu emanetleri korumaya yönelik öncelikle yapılabilecek en önemli çalışma, kültürel verilerin merkezi bir yapı içinde toplanması ve derlenmesidir: Belgeleme olmadan koruma olmaz. İlk kez bu projeyle, Türkiye arkeolojik yerleşmeleri, höyükler, tümülüsler, anıtlar, mezarlıklar, ören yerleri, yerleşme yerleşme, höyük höyük, tümülüs tümülüs belgelenmektedir. 

      The TAY (Archaeological Settlements of Turkey) Project was set up to build a chronological inventory of findings for the cultural heritage of Turkey - an important component of World Heritage sites - and to share this information with the international community.

      Although both Anatolia and Thrace have revealed cultural traces dating to at least 400.000 years ago, results from early 19th century investigations as well as data generated by current surveys and excavations are neither well organised nor easily accessible. The locations of many sites remain unknown, while many of them have been and continue to be destroyed, taking their undiscovered secrets with them. In order to stop this cycle, it is essential to collect and compile all available cultural heritage information to establish and maintain a central inventory: if we do not document, we cannot protect. TAY project's central aim is to thoroughly document all archaeological settlements within Turkey (such as mounds, monuments, tumuli, cemeteries, etc.).

      Transcription of TgLam from Urb. 1

      Transcription of TgLam from Urb. 1
      By Christian Brady
      The Text of Targum Lamentations from
      MS Codex Vaticanus Urbinas Hebr. 1
      This text is from the MS Urb. 1, represented without the vocalization. There is the occasional meaningless error in the MSS which I have omitted from this transcription, such as the additional ל in 1.3, and I have expanded the ligature formed at the end of ישראל by the combination of א ל. For more details concerning the MS see Brady, Vindicating God, Appendix 1, and the Introduction and Notes to Étan Levine’s facsimile edition, The Targum of the Five Megillot. It is this facsimile which I used for my readings.

      Champollion and Rosellini Online


      Champollion and Rosellini Egyptian Expeditions
      The works of the Champollion and Rosellini expeditions are invaluable and irreplaceable because they contain information and illustrations of Egyptian monuments made early in the exploration and exploitation of that country. They are two of the oldest and most important publications to include accurate copies of reliefs and inscriptions and are still regularly consulted for many of them. The quality of the plates is excellent but the rarity of the publications and their very large format (72 x 58 cm page size) make them unwieldy at best and inaccessible at worst to researchers who wish to use them. If they exist in digitized form, the originals will be handled less, thus prolonging their useful lives, and they could be made accessible to altogether more people.

      Champollion and Rosellini are two of the most important of these early sources, but digitizing this set of volumes should be seen as the first stage of a larger process of capturing the 19th and early 20th century legacy with a view to making it widely available. The Sackler Library has perhaps the world's finest collection of these publications, almost all of which are still in excellent condition, so that it is the logical collection to use as the point of departure for digitization.
