Classical Receptions in Drama and Poetry in English from c.1970-2005
Classical Receptions in Drama and Poetry in English from c.1970-2005
This project on the modern reception of classical texts was set up to document and analyse the upsurge of interest in Greek and Roman material which has been a feature of the late twentieth century and continues into the twenty first. This cultural remodelling and reimagining has often coincided with times of social and political crisis: conflict; resistance; trauma; emancipation; exploration of old and new identities. It also has a strong aesthetic energy. The ancient texts provide a springboard from which creative practitioners can forge their own techniques; the texts represent traditions from which the new creators can grow their work and against which they can contend.
Cultural historians of the future will look back on the late twentieth and early twenty first centuries as a time of cultural shift.  The ways in which the texts, performances and ideas of Greece and Rome have been characterised, interpreted, dismembered, reworded and rewritten represent one strand in these global changes. Because Greek and Roman antiquity is a part of many cultural traditions the uses made of it provide an index for comparison across place and time. Using antiquity as a field for playing with and thinking through difficult and threatening issues allows a critical distance that can cast an illuminating light on modernity as well as antiquity.
The drama database and the poetry research document evidence that is fundamental to the critical assessment of the aesthetic impact and the cultural hinterland of Greek and Roman material in Anglophone theatre and literature c. 1970 – c. 2005. It preserves detail that will contribute to analysis of large issues of social, political and artistic change. The case studies and data bases will provide a corpus of material to which cultural historians will be able to refer in the future – for example when they assess the contribution made by classical receptions to constructs of cultural memory, temporality and identity in a key period of trauma, fracture and change in the last part of the twentieth century and the early twenty-first. 
Because we aim to provide data that will be used by others who have varying investigative priorities and research questions, we place particular emphasis on the transparency of the methods and categories we use. In addition to identifying and preserving primary sources (many of which document performances that would otherwise be ephemeral) we hope that we shall also have provided a snapshot of how classical reception scholarship operated at this particular time and place (thus also in itself becoming a primary source).

New Open Access Journal: The Amphora Issue: An Ancient World Journal

The Amphora Issue: An Ancient World Journal 
The Amphora Issue was a regular issue of the Melbourne Historical Journal established in 2012 to provide a publication platform for postgraduate and early career researchers in Ancient World Studies. In 2017 The Amphora Issue became an independent journal and is affiliated with the Melbourne University Graduate Student Association. The Amphora Issue is a peer-reviewed journal which is open to new approaches and aims to present original research to a wide readership. The journal includes feature articles, refereed articles, book reviews and feature artworks. We welcome contributions from researchers working in a diverse range of fields, including Classical Studies, Ancient History, Reception Studies, Digital Humanities, Egyptology and Archaeology (including pre-historical and historical periods), with a focus on the ancient Mediterranean and the Near East.
The Amphora Issue is a journal that specialises in new research in ancient world studies. As of 2017, the Amphora Issue is proud to announce that it is fully open access.

The Amphora Issue 44.2

Melbourne Historical Journal

44.2 2016 (The Amphora Issue)

This fifth edition of The Amphora Issue marks a period of growth and change for the journal. Most notably, after five years, this edition marks the final issue under the imprimatur of the Melbourne Historical Journal (MHJ). MHJ have been fantastic in helping the Amphora Issue to grow from its beginnings in 2012, and the Editors would like to thank the MHJ Editorial Team, both past and present, for the work they have done and the accommodations they have made over these past years.

The Amphora Issue has also broken with tradition in this issue by presenting an edition not organised around a particular theme. While previous issues have centred around a specific theme or idea, the 2016 issue was intended as a general showcase of young scholarship on the Ancient World in Australasia. These diverse works demonstrate the variability in today’s engagement with the Ancient World. There are, however, several links which connect these diverse works. In particular, each piece addresses issues of reality and unreality,  whether through analysis of the place of representation and copying in museum displays, an examination of alterity and reality in ancient authors, or an exploration of what it is for a modern author or reader to actually engage with ‘the Classics’.
The Amphora Issue is also proud to announce that with this edition, the issue is now open access. Linked PDF files for each article are available below. Hard copies of this edition are also available upon request. Please see our Subscriptions page for more information.

The European Network of Research and Documentation of Performances of Ancient Greek Drama (Arc-Net)
ARC-Net
The European Network of Research and Documentation of Performances of Ancient Greek Drama (Arc-Net) aims to establish an expansion and a re-orientation of the academic community as well as to improve the traditional methods of teaching ancient drama, by creating new activities of an interdisciplinary and comparative nature. The main goal is to promote and carry out scholarly work, by initiating and coordinating comparative analyses, concerning the role and function of ancient drama and theatre in Europe. By analyzing the artistic forms and moral views expressed in editions as well as in public performances of ancient drama and its adaptations, recreations and new versions, the scholars and students in the Arc-Net will be able to trace, not only the importance of common heritage in the shaping of a European identity, but also the differences between local (national or other geographic cultural areas) cultural identities.
The Intensive Course on the Study and the Performance of Ancient Greek Drama of the European Network of Research and Documentation of Performances of Ancient Drama had been selected as a ‘case study’ and an ‘example of good practice’ by the European League of Institutes of the Arts (E.L.I.A.) among other educational programmes across Europe. The course is being studied by the Thematic Network of the European Union under the theme ‘Tradition and Innovation’.

Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece
http://www.nestle-aland.com/fileadmin/_migrated/media/NA28_Teaser_Startseite.jpg

The 28th edition

The 28th edition of the Nestle-Aland had to accomplish two different tasks. First, the apparatus had to be revised thoroughly to give it more clarity and make it easier to use. Secondly, the text-critical in-sights and decisions resulting from work on the Editio Critica Maior of the Greek New Testament had to be incorporated. As a consequence of these alterations, which so far concern only the Catholic Letters, the Nestle-Aland has for the first time in its history a different presentation for different parts of the text. The Catholic Letters were revised according to a fundamentally new concept which in the long run will be adopted for the entire edition. The revision of the remaining texts was confined to a thorough inspection and rearrangement of the apparatus, while the basic structure was left untouched. Another important innovation is that from now on the Nestle-Aland will not appear only as a printed book, but also in digital form.
Changes in NA28

Architecture and Urbanism at Seyitömer Höyük, Turkey: Archaeology and chronology of Seyitömer Höyük, an Early Bronze Age - Middle Bronze Age settlement in western Anatolia

Overview

This dataset contains information about the archaeology and chronology of Seyitömer Höyük, an EBA/MBA settlement in western Anatolia. It is organized into two tables: (Table 1) Phase V-B Architecture and Space Syntax Values; and (Table 2) Radiocarbon Determinations and Chronology.
Table 1 contains records for each architectural space, and includes information about room dimensions, entrances, wall construction technique, floor construction technique, features, and in situ deposits, and space syntax values. Each record is linked to one or more photographs, a detailed room plan, and an Enhanced Access Graph.
Table 2 contains records for each radiocarbon sample selected for analysis. It includes paleobotanical information, the radiocarbon laboratory used for analysis, and the unmodelled date BP. It also expresses the results of a Bayesian statistical analysis, including posterior density estimates at 95.4% and 99.7% probability.

Amphorae ex Hispania
Logo Amphorae ex Hispania
Hace ya 30 años que Miguel Beltrán publicó su libro “Ánforas romanas en España”, que se convertía en un verdadero hito para el estudio de estos envases comerciales romanos no tan sólo en nuestro país, sino en la mayoría de países europeos.
Su trabajo pionero definió los grandes temas de investigación futura y sentó cátedra dentro de la joven investigación española en arqueología e historia de Roma. En estos 30 años las ánforas hispanas han cobrado un especial protagonismo con el estudio de las zonas de producción de los envases (p.e. costas andaluzas y valencianas, valle del Guadalquivir, litoral catalán), de su distribución en las provincias del Imperio romano (p.e. Germania, Britannia), su clasificación formal y, ya más recientemente, su arqueometría. Como resultado de todo ello, podemos afirmar que en la actualidad existen numerosos especialistas españoles y portugueses sobre esta materia, reconocidos en el extranjero por sus sólidos trabajos de investigación.

The Sun Temple of King Niussere (Rathoris)
published by Friedrich Wilhelm Freiherr von Bissing Professor at the University of Utrecht
Volume II: The Small Festival Description
by Friedrich Wilhelm Freiherr von Bissing and Hermann Kees 

Leipzig
J.C. Hinrichs' Bookstore 1923

Original Title: DAS RE-HEILIGTUM DES KÖNIGS NE-WOSER-RE (RATHÜRES) BAND II: DIE KLEINE FESTDARSTELLUNG 

Translated from German by: Stardust Doherty (with assistance from Bernhard Ruchti, Jean Daniel DEGREEF, and Christoph Hemmer). Translation comments appear in {curly brackets}. Translation uses Manuel de codage transliterations. 

Note from Jean Daniel DEGREEF: The order of the rituals is the opposite of that adopted by Kees (the procession marks the beginning of the festival, not its end; the foundation occurs on the last day, see DEGREEF, 2009, on Academia.edu). This can be seen thanks to the great similarities with the New Year Festival on pBrooklyn 47.218.50 and by the numbering of the registers in the scenes at the temple of Soleb. None of these had been published when Kees wrote this book.

We wish to notify you of nine new texts that have recently been added to the online editions of the Cuneiform Commentaries Project (http://ccp.yale.edu), a list of which is provided below.

Thanks are expressed to Shana Zaia for her editions of two texts, and to Klaus Wagensonner for reading the commentary on the Literary Prayer to Marduk 2 with us.

You are warmly invited to contribute any editions of commentary tablets you may have made for publication on the CCP website, for which you will, of course, receive full credit.

All the best,

Mary Frazer
Senior Editor of the Cuneiform Commentaries Project



CCP 1.2 (Lugale): In its current condition, this manuscript consists of four joined fragments from the centre of what must have originally been a large tablet with three columns on each side. The preserved text represents column II, which contained the Akkadian version of the base text; of column I – which contained the base text in its original Sumerian – only traces of the final signs in some lines remain. (Read more)

CCP 1.5 (Literary Prayer to Marduk 2): This small and badly damaged tablet contains a commentary that deals with the first sixty-eight lines of the literary prayer Lord, Sage of the Igigi, a text frequently styled, after Lambert’s pioneering edition,1 as Marduk no. 2. (Read more)

CCP 3.1.27.B (Enūma Anu Enlil 27(28) B): In its current state of preservation, this commentary deals with twelve omens derived from the appearance of the sun and drawn from the end of the ‘Babylonian’ recension of Tablet (‘Chapter’) 27 (28) of Enūma Anu Enlil, the divination treatise on omens derived from celestial and meteorological phenomena. (Read more)

CCP 3.4.8.C (Bārûtu 8 Kakku C): A small fragment from the top left of the obverse side of a multi-column tablet of a commentary on the eighth chapter of the divination treatise bārûtu, “extispicy.” This chapter is concerned with the “weapon,” kakku, a small piece of tissue that can protrude from anywhere in the liver. (Read more)

CCP 6.1.2.C (Aa I/5 (?)): This previously unidentified fragment belongs to a commentary on the lexical series Aa. It comments in all likelihood on a section concerned with the readings of the sign LÁ, a section that is unfortunately not preserved in the extant manuscripts of Aa. (Read more)

CCP 6.7.B (Weidner’s God List B): The lexical list known as Weidner’s God List (WGL) or Anum (after its incipit) was significant enough that it prompted numerous copies. Known exemplars reveal that this list was attested as early as the Ur III period and as late as the Neo-Babylonian period (Read more)

CCP 6.7.u1 (Uncertain): W 22712/1a is a fragment from Seleucid period Uruk that was found in the third level of the House of the āšipu1 and preserves 12 lines of text. The beginnings of these lines are lost and it is unclear if the preserved lines comprise one column in a multi-column text. (Read more)

CCP 7.2.u165 (Bird omens (?)): This fragment preserves remains of a commentary on an unidentified text. The first two lines of the reverse probably explain Jupiter’s name dapīnu, “violent,” which means that the base text might be astrological. (Read more)

CCP 7.2.u171 (Uncertain): There is no proof that this small, nondescript fragment belongs to a commentary. Although some cola are visible (ll. 2 and 3), the fragment may well belong to an incantation (as suggested by l. 4) or a bilingual text (as suggested by l. 3). (Read more)

 

Coming Soon: World-Historical Gazetteer

World-Historical Gazetteer
Over a three-year period (2017-2020), the World-Historical Gazetteer (WHG) project will produce a data store and associated software and services supporting collaborative digital and data-driven historical scholarship at the global scale. This Linked Open Data (LOD) system will focus significantly but not exclusively on the centuries since 1500, and have these closely related components:
The gazetteer. A spatially and temporally comprehensive database of significant world historical place names. This broad but shallow resource (an estimated 30,000 entries, subject to change) will draw on a few core sources, including print historical atlas indexes, linguistic atlases, and modern physical geography datasets. Those core records will be aligned with existing gazetteers where possible, including GeoNames and the Getty Thesaurus of Geographic Names (TGN), and be enriched with some data from DBpedia
A “union index.” Records from the WHG core gazetteer will be merged with those of specialized gazetteers from our project partners and elsewhere in a rich, high-performance index
Interfaces to the gazetteer. We will build (a) a web-based interface for searching, browsing, and editing the data, and (b) an application programming interface service (API) providing faceted programmatic access to the data [GitHub Repository]
Demonstration pilot projects. Data from two groups of historical research projects will be linked via the gazetteer, demonstrating the value of linked data in historical scholarship. One group is concerned with Maritime Asia, the other with the Atlantic World

Editorial: The Future of the Past

I am repeatedly asked for the source of the image of "books being churned into a machine and somehow transmitted electronically to boys in a classroom setting" (in the words of one anonymous correspondent today).

I note first of all that it is identified in the right-hand sidebar on the main page of AWOL, but the identifying metadata seems to be removed by the automated process of bundling the AWOL digests for email transmission and for syndication to Facebook, Twitter, and elsewhere.

The image in question is this one:

http://www.ufunk.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/an-2000-1910-illustration-09.jpg

It appears online in a variety of places, but is nicely contextualized here at the Public Domain Review:

A series of futuristic pictures by Jean-Marc Côté and other artists issued in France in 1899, 1900, 1901 and 1910. Originally in the form of paper cards enclosed in cigarette/cigar boxes and, later, as postcards, the images depicted the world as it was imagined to be like in the then distant year of 2000. As is so often the case their predictions fell some way off the mark, failing to go far enough in thinking outside the confines of their current technological milieu (hence the ubiquity of propellors, not to mention the distinctly 19th-century dress).

There are at least 87 cards known that were authored by various French artists, the first series being produced for the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris. Due to financial difficulties the cards by Jean-Marc Côté were never actually distributed and only came to light many years later after the science-fiction author Isaac Asimov chanced upon a set and published them in 1986, with accompanying commentary, in the book Futuredays: A Nineteenth Century Vision of the Year 2000.
Go have a look at them, they're quite charming.

Plato’s Similes: A Compendium of 500 Similes in 35 Dialogues
By John Ziolkowski

Preface

In Plato’s Dialogues there are many vivid comparisons. The soul is compared to a sieve, or a tomb, or a shooting star. The Greeks are like ants or frogs living around a marsh. Socrates calls himself a philosophical mid-wife and a gadfly that pesters Athenians. These similes have become familiar images in our literary and philosophical tradition. They also reveal to us an aspect of Platonic writing that is humorous, imaginative, and subtle. They provide an insight into Plato’s efforts to explain philosophic topics in an appealing manner to his audience. Similes are also an important but by no means obvious source of our impressions of Socrates, who is the speaker of most of the famous comparisons found in Plato.
Although there are studies of similes in Homer and other poets, no such work exists for Plato—or indeed for any ancient prose writer.[1] In order to fill this gap for Plato at least, the following compendium lists and analyzes over five hundred similes taken from the Platonic corpus of thirty-five Dialogues. From this survey emerges an interesting perspective of Plato’s portrait of Socrates: the ways Socrates describes himself and others as well as the opinions of various speakers about Socrates. Because some of the examples presented here may seem to be metaphors according to the traditional definition going back to Aristotle, the Introduction will discuss the definition of simile, the distinction between this figure and metaphor, and a new proposal to clarify the difference. As an aid to non-specialists all passages are cited in English (with significant Greek words added and transliterated in parentheses). Greek texts may be found on the Perseus website (www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper).
