 [First posted in AWOL 29 May 2012, updated 19 August 2017]

IMPACT Radiological Mummy Database
The IMPACT Radiological Mummy Database is a large-scale, multi-institutional collaborative research project devoted to the scientific study of mummified remains, and the mummification traditions that produced them, through non-destructive medical imaging technologies.

IMPACT focuses on the body,  made artifact through cultural or natural intervention, in bioarchaeology, epidemiology, and social archaeology studies of  past human societies and their genetic and cultural decendants.

Corinth Excavation K-12 Educational Resources

Corinth Excavation K-12 Educational Resources
The lesson plans are gathered by a central theme or topic; however, each lesson plan is a separate entity to supplement learning within a teacher’s curriculum on ancient and medieval civilizations. For each lesson plan, a supplementary PowerPoint with images and prodecures helps make lessons ready-to-use. Lessons are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards, National Standards for History (published by the National Center for History in Schools), or Common Core State Standards.
All lessons are in English, with Greek, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish translations planned or in progress. Lessons are available via Corinth Excavations' Google+ page along with collections of videos used in the lessons plus other bonus videos. The links below direct you to individual lesson plans stored on Corinth Excavations' Google Drive account; you may also view the entire collection of lessons here.

Open Access Journal: Sino-Platonic Papers

[First posted 8/30/10. Most recently updated 21 August 2017]

Sino-Platonic Papers
ISSN: 2157-9679 (print)
ISSN: 2157-9687 (online)
Sino-Platonic Papers is an occasional series edited by Victor H. Mair of the University of Pennsylvania's Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations. The purpose of the series is to make available to specialists and the interested public the results of research that, because of its unconventional or controversial nature, might otherwise go unpublished.

Since issue no. 171 (June 2006), Sino-Platonic Papers has been published electronically on the Web at no cost to readers, with older back issues also being released periodically for free in e-editions. Paper copies of issues nos. 1–170 will continue to be available for purchase until our stock runs out, at which point those issues too will be available for free on the Web.

Eidolon: Eidolon makes the classics political and personal, feminist and fun

Eidolon: Eidolon makes the classics political and personal, feminist and fun
Eidolon makes the classics political and personal, feminist and fun.
Classics, as a discipline, could be more of these things, and we’re determined to make that happen. We publish on the main site about the ancient and modern world, pedagogy, pop culture, culture only classicists care about, issues in the field, etc., and occasionally on idle musings, our blog, about all sorts of nonsense and whimsy.

When we first launched in 2015, the fact that no equivalent publication existed gave us the freedom to make up the rules as we went along. We’ve come up with a few since then, and we’d like to share them with you as a new and improved Eidolon.

First, in the spirit of bringing politics into Classics, we’ll be clear about our own: we err on the progressive side, broadly defined but with the general sense of working from the margins and for the marginalized, encouraging cutting-edge scholarship, and tirelessly trying to improve whatever we’re doing. Feminism, also broadly defined (and inclusive!), is at the heart of our work, although that doesn’t necessarily restrict our content — indeed, the fact that “women’s topics” are seen as narrow while men’s topics are just “topics” is precisely part of the problem.

We welcome critique left and right, from the left and the right, and hope to encourage spirited debate. But make no mistake: we don’t believe that every opinion is equally valuable, and we don’t care about both sides, many sides, all sides, or backsides. “Objectivity” is often nothing more than a cover for upholding the status quo, and to hell with the status quo.

The logical extension of that is a commitment to opening up Classics to voices of all kinds at all levels in the field. The discourse has been monotonous for too long, and that’s not only unjust: it’s boring. We care about personal voices, we want to bring out idiosyncratic tones, volumes, pitches, cadences, and speeds in the articles that we publish.

We don’t want to eclipse the good work that the academy’s doing — we want to supplement it. We want to be just as intellectually rigorous, but we also want to take full advantage of the leeway to be freer and funnier than traditional scholarship.

Above all, we want to create a space where good ideas meet good writing. We believe in clarity, flair, and paying writers for their work; you can find our rates here.

Now have a read, have a think, and have a part in making Classics better.

Open Access Journal: Studies in Ancient Art and Civilization

[First posted in AWOL 4 October 2009. Updated 23 August 2017]

Studies in Ancient Art and Civilization
ISSN: 0083-4300

Studies in Ancient Art and Civilization were created in 1991 as an irregular series which in the first place served as a forum for the presentation of the Jagiellonian University Institute of Archaeology and studies provided by its researchers. The series was originated by professor Joachim Śliwa, who was also its first Editor in Chief, and since 2010 this function has been fulfilled by professor Ewdoksia Papuci-Władyka. Since vol. 10 (2007) SAAC has become a regular yearly periodical. 
Until present fifteen volumes have been published, among them two monographic studies (vols. 3 and 11, the latter being Pontika 2006 conference proceedings edited by E. Papuci-Władyka) and three volumes dedicated to distinguished researchers from our Institute on occasion of their jubilees (vols. 8 – professor Maria Ludwika Bernhard, 14 – professor Joachim Śliwa and 15 – professor Janusz A. Ostrowski).
SAAC publishes papers in the fields of archaeology, art and civilization of ancient Egypt, the Near East, Greece and its colonies, Cyprus and Rome, as well as other, non-Mediterranean ancient civilizations, and also in history of archaeology, collecting of antiquities and reception of ancient culture in modern Europe. Special attention is being given to topics concerning predynastic and early-dynastic Egypt, the Greek and Roman periods in the Black Sea region, and archaeology of Cyprus, due to the excavations conducted by researchers from our Institute in these areas. Objects and artefacts from these excavations are being published in SAAC.
Since 2011 (vol. 15) the publisher has been Księgarnia Akademicka Ltd. in Krakow. Starting with volume 16 (2012) external review procedure will be introduced, compliant to the double-blind review process (anonymity of both reviewed author and reviewer). The referees will be both members of the Editorial Board and other researchers. The list of referees will be published on the journal’s website.
All SAAC volumes as well as other publications are available on the library exchange base.
Recent issues can be purchased at the Księgarnia Akademicka, also in e-book format (www. akademicka.pl)
    All articles through volume 12 are available as PDF files.

      Humanities for All: A National Survey of Public Engagement in the Humanities in Higher Education

      Humanities for All: A National Survey of Public Engagement in the Humanities in Higher Education: CALL FOR ASSISTANCE
       The National Humanities Alliance Foundation is currently conducting a national study of public engagement in the humanities at institutions of higher education.

      This national study surveys the range of ways that higher ed faculty, students, and administrators have connected with diverse communities through the humanities over the past decade (short abstract available here). We are especially interested in initiatives that have involved collaboration with the wide range of organizations that are also committed to the public humanities.

      We are reaching out to ask for examples of projects that connect the humanities with the broader community.

      If you have been involved with or know of any projects that fit this description, we would be grateful if you could please contact Daniel Fisher, Project Director (dfisher@nhalliance.org).


      This project has received generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

      The National Humanities Alliance Foundation advances the humanities by conducting and supporting research on the humanities and communicating the value of the humanities to a range of audiences including elected officials and the general public.

      Open Access Journal: Dissertation Reviews

      [First posted in AWOL 5 June 3013, updated 23 August 2017]

      Dissertation Reviews
      Since 2010, Dissertation Reviews has featured more than 1000 overviews of recently defended, unpublished doctoral dissertations in a wide variety of disciplines across the Humanities and Social Sciences. Our goal is to offer readers a glimpse of each discipline’s immediate present by focusing on the window of time between dissertation defense and first book publication.

      Each review provides a summary of the author’s main arguments, the historiographic genealogy in which the author operates, and the main source bases for his or her research. The reviews are also anticipatory, making educated assessments of how the research will advance or challenge our understanding of major issues in the field when it is revised and published in the future.
      In addition to the public, non-critical review that is published on the site, authors also receive private, critical commentary from their reviewers designed to help authors during the manuscript revision process. Critical comments are not published on the site or circulated in any way. They are expressly for the author.

      Reviews form the bedrock of our project and we’re very proud of the immense work and dedication of our reviewers, writers and editors. Below is a map of these reviews mapped by Ph.D. institution. Please note that many universities have multiple reviews. When you click on of one them, you will see a > symbol and indication of the number of reviews from that university (1 of 23, for example). Scroll through the reviews using the > arrow. Click on “More info” to read any of the reviews  .
      While Classics, Ancient Studies, Ancient Near East, Egyptology, Archaeology, and so on are not (yet) explicit categories, there are reviews of dissertations on subjects relating to antiquity in other categories. They are also soliciting Editors for additional categories. Volunteers?

      The Digital Classicist Wiki

      [First posted in AWOL 22 February 2010. Updated 23 August 2017]

      The Digital Classicist Wiki
      The Digital Classicist is a hub for scholars and students interested in the application of humanities computing to research in the ancient and Byzantine worlds. This wiki collects guidelines and suggestions of major technical issues, and catalogues digital projects and tools of relevance to classicists. The wiki also lists events, bibliographies, publications (print and electronic), and other developments in the field. A discussion group serves as grist for a list of Frequently Asked Questions. As members of the community provide answers and other suggestions, some of these may graduate into independent wiki articles providing work-in-progress guidelines and reports. 

      The scope of the wiki follows the interests and expertise of collaborators, in general, and of the editors, in particular. As a general principle, key sections of the website or summaries of discussions will, where possible, be translated into the major languages of European scholarship: e.g. English, French, German, and Italian. 

      We seek to encourage the growth of a community of practice, which is open to everyone interested in the topic, regardless of skill or experience in technical matters, and language of contribution. To become a editor of the wiki, please contact one of the administrators (Gabriel Bodard or Simon Mahony). (The "create account" option has been disabled due to spam bots.) Consult the Wiki editing page to familiarize yourself with formatting conventions. 

      The Digital Classicist is hosted by the Department of Digital Humanities at King's College London, and the Stoa Consortium, University of Kentucky.

      LEMLAT: Morphological analysis of the Latin

      CHLT LEMLAT is going to be a computational instrument for the morphological analysis of the Latin, whose results are compatible with the requirements of the project CHLT.

      In order to obtain it, we are developing new functionalities of an existing version of LEMLAT (first version of 1992, developed jointly by ILC- CNR and University of Torino). This new version will be called CHLT LEMLAT. When the first version of LEMLAT receives in input a word form, this latter is segmented into its formative elements and a corresponding lemma is produced in output, with respective code that indicates the flexive paradigm.The lexical base of LEMLAT is the result of the collation of the following three dictionaries: Georges, Gradenwitz and Oxford Latin Dictionary. The last one is the main reference. 

      Particularly, our aim is to enrich the output of LEMLAT, adding some new morphological information such as case, gender, number.... 

      The results of CHLT LEMLAT analysis can be used, for instance, in fields such as linguistics and literary research, didactics and information retrieval. The use of such an instrument is fundamental for management of whichever lexical patrimony. 

      At the end of the work, CHLT LEMLAT will operate a complete morphological lemmatization of the input texts and words.

      Open Access Journal: Folia Electronica Classica

      [First posted in AWOL 9 November 2009. Updated 25 August 2017]

      Folia Electronica Classica
      En réponse à une suggestion de Jean Schumacher, à l'époque responsable du service informatique de la Faculté de Philosophie et Lettres, la Bibliotheca Classica Selecta (BCS) tente depuis juin 2001 à Louvain l'expérience d'une revue électronique consacrée au monde classique et entièrement libre d'accès : les Folia Electronica Classica. Pour l'instant, la nouvelle revue propose des articles relativement généraux, rédigés en français et susceptibles d'intéresser un large public ; si elle s'adresse parfois à des spécialistes, elle vise davantage les professeurs du secondaire, les étudiants, voire les internautes cultivés. Son orientation n'est pas encore bien définie, et une période de rodage sera probablement nécessaire avant d'y voir plus clair...

      CDLI News: Princeton Theological Seminary cuneiform texts

      <http://cdli.ucla.edu/?q=news/princeton’s-very-special-collections> is CDLI’s January 2015 announcement of a then ongoing collaboration with the curatorial and academic staff of the Princeton Theological Seminary to digitize and make accessible online the PTS collection of cuneiform text artifacts. That notice entertained the prospect of a completion of the collaborative capture by the fall of the same year. A little two years late: with the recent posting of fatcrosses of the collection’s 1st millennium exemplars, created by UCLA graduate student Mike Heinle, undergrad Veronica Hughey and myself (<http://tinyurl.com/y9of8zkh>), we have now indeed wrapped up the more technical aspect of this venture, offering a clearer picture of the nature, and state of publication of this substantial set of (currently 2927) texts. We invite specialists to review the, by our count, 1827 still unpublished PTS texts (<http://tinyurl.com/ycqqvmtt>), largely Old Babylonian, neo-Babylonian and Achaemenid period administrative and legal documents, but still including 58 Ur III records, with an eye to their eventual formal publication. Such planned editions should be proposed to Princeton Theological Seminary associates, and once agreed to, notification should be sent to CDLI to upload authors’ names to their texts’ corresponding entries. Beyond publication considerations, we would be grateful to receive corrections to the current CDLI catalogue of these texts from later periods, and we of course welcome communication of remaining errors in our treatment of the published pieces.

      Historia Numorum Online

      Historia Numorum Online
      Historia Numorum Online aims to record and publish all types and varieties of the coins minted before the Roman period (c. 650-30 BCE). The first volume will be devoted to Caria and is supported by a two-year funding by the Laboratoires des Sciences Archéologiques de Bordeaux (LaScArBx)
      The Carian volume is expected to be completed by the end of 2017 and should include an estimated 8000 coins illustrating some 2500 individual types from 53 individual mints. A paper publication should follow shortly the completion of the online database. It is hoped that further volumes will be undertaken by specialists of other regions.
