New Open Access Journal: Epoiesen – A journal for creative engagement in history and archaeology

Epoiesen – A journal for creative engagement in history and archaeology



ἐποίησεν (epoiesen)- made - is a journal for exploring creative engagement with the past, especially through digital means. It publishes primarily what might be thought of as ‘paradata’ or artist’s statements that accompany playful and unfamiliar forms of singing the past into existence. These could be visualizations, art works, games, pop-up installations, poetry, hypertext fiction, procedurally generated works, or other forms yet to be devised. We seek to document and valorize the scholarly creativity that underpins our representations of the past. Epoiesen is therefore a kind of witness to the implied knowledge of archaeologists, historians, and other professionals, academics and artists as it intersects with the sources about the past. It encourages engagement with the past that reaches beyond our traditional audience (ourselves). We situate Epoiesen in dialogue with approaches to computational creativity or generative art:
I think that generative art should ideally retain two disparate levels of perception: the material and visual qualities of a piece of art, and then a creation story or script and the intellectual journey that led to the end result. It possibly should bear marks of that intense interaction with the spatial environment that the visible work manifests.


Epoiesen accepts code artefacts, written submissions in text files (.md) written with the Markdown syntax, videos, 3d .obj files, html, or other formats (contact us if you are unsure: we encourage experimentation). Digital artefacts should be accompanied by the descriptive paradata or artist’s statement.
Submissions will be reviewed, and the reviews will be published at the same time as a Response, under the reviewers’ own names. Submissions and Responses will each have their own Digital Object Identifiers. Epoiesen is indexed in XXXXXX and supported by Carleton University’s MacOdrum Library. Submissions are accepted at any time, and published as they become ready. Each year’s submissions will be organized retroactively into ‘annuals’. The entire journal will be archived and deposited in a dataverse-powered repository at Carleton University.
There are no article processing fees. We are generously supported by MacOdrum Library at Carleton University for at least five years.
This website is generated from a series of markdown formatted text files, which are run through a series of templates to create the flat-file html architecture. There is no underlying database. For an introduction on how to do this for your own website, and why you might want to, please see Amanda Visconti’s tutorial in The Programming Historian, ‘Building a Static Website with Jekyll and Github Pages’. Epoiesen uses Hexo as its site generator.


Michael Gove, the Conservative British politician, said in the run-up to the United Kingdom’s 2016 referendum on European Union membership, “people in this country have had enough of experts”(1). And perhaps, he was right. There is a perception that archaeology is for the archaeologists, history for the historians. On our side, there is perhaps a perception that speaking to non-expert audiences is a lesser calling, that people who write/create things that do not look like what we have always done, are not really ‘serious’. In these vacuums of perception, we fail at communicating the complexities of the past, allowing the past to be used, abused, or ignored, especially for populist political ends. The ‘know-nothings‘ are on the march. We must not stand by.
In such a vacuum, there is a need for critical creative engagement with the past2. In Succinct Research, Bill White reminds us why society allows archaeologists to exist in the first place: ‘it is to amplify the whispers of the past in our own unique way so they can still be heard today‘(3). We have been failing in this by limiting the ways we might accomplish that task.
Epoiesen is a place to amplify whispers, a place to shout. Remix the experience of the past. Do not be silent!

    Open Access Journal: Museum Anthropology Review

    Museum Anthropology Review
    ISSN: 1938-5145
    Museum Anthropology Review banner image
    Museum Anthropology Review (MAR) is an open access journal whose purpose is the wide dissemination of articles, reviews, essays, and other content advancing the field of material culture and museum studies, broadly conceived.


    Vol 7, No 1-2 (2013): After the Return: Digital Repatriation and the Circulation of Indigenous Knowledge

    This double issue of Museum Anthropology Review collects papers originally presented at a January 2012 workshop titled “After the Return: Digital Repatriation and the Circulation of Indigenous Knowledge.” Hosted by the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution and funded by the (U.S.) National Science Foundation and the Understanding the American Experience and World Cultures Consortia of the Smithsonian Institution, the workshop was organized by Kimberly Christen (Washington State University), Joshua Bell (Smithsonian Institution), and Mark Turin (Yale University). The workshop brought together scholars from diverse anthropological fields, indigenous communities, and collecting institutions to document best practices and case studies of digital repatriation in order to theorize the broad impacts of such processes in relation to: linguistic revitalization of endangered languages, cultural revitalization of traditional practices, and the creation of new knowledge stemming from the return of digitized material culture. Like the workshop itself, the peer-reviewed and revised papers collected here ask how, and if, marginalized communities can reinvigorate their local knowledge practices, languages, and cultural products through the reuse of digitally repatriated materials and distributed technologies. The authors of the collected papers all have expertise in applied digital repatriation projects and share theoretical concerns that locate knowledge creation within both culturally specific dynamics and technological applications.

                                                                                              The Ras Shamra Tablet Inventory (RSTI) aspires to be the foremost online resource for Ugarit Studies. From the celebrated myths to the more quotidian administrative lists, the texts from Ras Shamra-Ugarit are of great interest to students and scholars of Biblical studies and Ancient Near Eastern studies. These ancient texts, discovered by archaeologists beginning in 1929, provide insight into the religious, administrative, and daily life of the kingdom of Ugarit, some 3,200 years after its fall. After over 80 years of Ugarit studies, researchers like those at the Oriental Institute are still establishing reliable text editions of the thousands of texts. Printed volumes are an inadequate solution. The field needs an innovative, collaborate, and ambitious solution. The primary goal of RSTI is to integrate archaeological, textual, lexical, and philological research in a single database and present this data to researchers and the public through a simple, widely accessible, online digital interface.

                                                                                              This project builds on many years of research, including research from a pre-digital age. In 1978, Pierre Bordreuil and Dennis Pardee set out to document critical information about every inscribed object from Ras Shamra-Ugarit. In 1989, “La Trouvaille Epigraphique de l’Ougarit” (TEO) appeared in the series Ras Shamra-Ougarit, volume 5 (Éditions Recherche sur les civilisations, volume 86). This volume presents the archaeological context of every inscribed object, a description of the object size and type of writing, museum numbers, publications, text editions, and general remarks. Of course, the printed volume lacks information about the objects discovered after 1988. During his doctoral research, Prosser endeavored to create a relational database that included digitized TEO data, text transcriptions, translations, glossaries, bibliographic references, and notes. This database functioned well but was very limited. Through his work at the Persepolis Fortification Archive project at the Oriental Institute, Prosser became familiar with the OCHRE database system and immediately perceived its superiority for archaeological and philological analysis. See below for more on the OCHRE database system. Work began on RSTI in 2011, importing data from Prosser’s relational database and adding new data.

                                                                                              Deployed through both Java and familiar HTML user interfaces, RSTI presents dynamic and interactive text editions, prosopography research, bibliography, and related resources. RSTI uses the Online Cultural and Historical Research Environment (OCHRE) at the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. The OCHRE database system was developed specifically for research in archaeology and philology. The underlying data model is well-suited to the heterogeneous and semi-structured nature of philological data. For more about the OCHRE database, see www.ochre.uchicago.edu.

These are temporarily available on this Siena College Web Page; eventually they will be part of the University of Pennsylvania’s Oracc collection. The files here are in PDF format. Some editing on them continues, e.g. I am continuing to place the English translation side by side with the Akkadian/ Sumerian rather than following as in the Book.Thoughthese texts show page numbers, they do not correspond to those of the 2001 book.
                                                                                              • Use of these texts in scholarship should follow the Budapest Convention of November 2001.

If some kind soul could please send me several files or parts of that file showing the various steps in that conversion so I can use that as a template n all the files.

                                                                                              Note that in a few cases it has not yet been feasible to publish the best eclectic text of a given document. In other cases the OCP edition of a document does not yet include all of the textual evidence. Readers should consult the "text status" information on the introductory page for each document to determine whether a better or more complete text exists elsewhere.

                                                                                              Texts should be cited in scholarly references according to the persistent URL for the OCP site (http://www.purl.org/net/ocp), rather than the address which appears in the address bar of your web browser, as this address may change in future years.

It allows users to create multimedia narratives on epigraphic content. It was created in the context of the EAGLE project, a European project which started in 2013 and aimed to connect and collect data sources and projects related to the topic of digital epigraphy, ancient history or archeology.
                                                                                              Being a Plug-In for WordPress the ESA allows you to embed multimedia content from a wide variety of data sources in your posts in a form of nicely drawn boxes ESA-Items. For example, you can paste a Wikipedia-URL to your text and it is rendered as a preview Box to the Wikipedia page. But It does not only extend the built-in embed (and oEmbed) functions that are well knows and beloved for working with services like Youtube, Flickr much more.
                                                                                              The ESA-Items are neither iframes nor are they generated with ajax or any other way that would result in API calls to the corresponding web service every time the containing post is displayed. Instead, the embedded content is stored in cache table and refreshed automatically after two weeks. That makes the items also usable for searching, drawing a map of used ESA-Items in the database and so on.
                                                                                              You can not only embed content as ESA-Items by posting URLs from known data sources but also search the data sources directly from the WordPress text editor.
                                                                                              In this way you can integrate Maps, Wikipedia Articles, Images from Wikimedia Commons and a lot of specialized data sources for epigraphy. The ESA has has a modular sub-plugin architecture which makes it quite easy for developers to add some other data sources via their Web-APIs. Thus it might be no only of interest for those who work in epigraphy or the ancient world but also for those who want to show the content of any Web-API in their blog.

                                                                                              Over 150 years of research – where humans developed agriculture,  interregional trade, the first sedentary communities, state-level societies and political networks – has resulted in a huge amount of complex and interrelated data ranging from settlement patterns to ceramics.

It is an encyclopaedic lexicon collecting the bio-bibliographical data about classical philologists and it is a continuation and improvement of W. Pökel’s Philologisches Schriftstellerlexikon, Leipzig 1882. Only deceased scholars are included.

                                                                                              THE HISTORY OF THE CATALOGUS

                                                                                              The Catalogus started off with the 1984 CNR international conference "La filologia classica nel secolo XX" (strongly supported by Scevola Mariotti) and with its proceedings, published in Pisa in 1989. Subsequently the preparation of a Catalogus Philologorum Classicorum has begun at the Dipartimento di Filologia Classica of the University of Pisa, with the financial support of CNR, and has been on-line since 2003, within the web-site Aristarchus, thanks to a cooperation between the Dipartimento di Filologia Classica of the University of Pisa and the Dipartimento di Archeologia e Filologia Classica (D.AR.FI.CL.ET.) of the University of Genoa.

                                                                                              The CPhCl has become an international network since 2009. The central unit, which has its head office at the Dipartimento di Archeologia e Filologia Classica of the University of Genoa, is responsible for the coordination and supervision of the whole project, as well as the administration of the website. The cards concerning the scholars have been attributed to the local units according to geographic and linguistic criteria. A three-letter abbreviation identifies the country of the unit which is responsible for each card.

                                                                                              For specific information about the cards you can write an e-mail to the relevant unit, provided it has started its activity. Since CPhCl is a work in progress the units are continually developing their competence and skills. In the meantime you can write an e-mail to the central unit about the whole project or about cards that have not yet been attributed to a specific unit.

                                                                                              You should be aware that mistakes and shortcomings of various kinds are inevitable at this stage: we are sorry for them and very grateful for any suggestion on your part.

                                                                                              Syntacticus provides easy access to around a million morphosyntactically annotated sentences from a range of early Indo-European languages.
                                                                                              Syntacticus is an umbrella project for the PROIEL Treebank, the TOROT Treebank and the ISWOC Treebank, which all use the same annotation system and share similar linguistic priorities. In total, Syntacticus contains 80,138 sentences or 936,874 tokens in 10 languages.
                                                                                              We are constantly adding new material to Syntacticus. The ultimate goal is to have a representative sample of different text types from each branch of early Indo-European. We maintain lists of texts we are working on at the moment, which you can find on the PROIEL Treebank and the TOROT Treebank pages, but this is extremely time-consuming work so please be patient!
                                                                                              The focus for Syntacticus at the moment is to consolidate and edit our documentation so that it is easier to approach. We are very aware that the current documentation is inadequate! But new features and better integration with our development toolchain are also on the horizon in the near future.

                                                                                              Here you will find Google Maps that display the extents of various archaeological surveys that have been conducted in Anatolia as well as numerous archaeological sites. These sites, when possible, are linked to online content that provides more information. They also often have citations for scholarly work that has discussed them. The works that are cited can be found in the bibliography.

                                                                                              Finally, the Anatolian Atlas also hosts original research that has been developed in CAMEL by scholars of the Oriental Institute.
