The journal seeks to achieve the following objectives:
- To promote inter-disciplinary research in all areas of the humanities.
- To provide a forum for genuine and constructive dialogues between scholars in different fields of the humanities.
- To assist researchers at the pre-and post-doctorate levels, with a wealth of new and original material.
- To make ideas, topics, and processes in the humanities intelligible and accessible to both the interested public and scholars whose expertise might lie outside that subject matter .


 The International Journal of Humanities publishes:

- Comprehensive papers
- Point and counterpoint articles
- State of the Art articles
- Review articles

The journal welcomes contributions by scholars from all countries and especially encourages critical exchanges between Iranian and non-Iranian   scholars.
n.b. While not specifically ancient related, this journal includes substantial content in archaeology and ancient history - particularly in recent volumes.

Cotsen Digital Archaeology series
The Cotsen Digital Archaeology (CDA) series presents the results of original archaeological and conservation research through digitally initiated and accessible publications that integrate innovative multimedia and data links. The Cotsen Digital Archaeology series thus comprises hybrid publications that have extra online components in the form of audio and video files, data files, data base structures and apps. These materials can be found with each book under the left side tab "supporting materials." Cotsen Digital Archaeology books are published after the same rigorous peer review process as all other Cotsen Press publications, including data review. The printed volumes are also listed on our website http://www.ioa.ucla.edu/publications/browse-books/viewall and can be purchased through our distributor the University of Mexico Press (http://www.unmpress.com/). The purpose of the Digital Archaeology Series is to expand the availability of data and make full use of the new possibilities offered by online interactive publication. The development of this series is a gradual process of experimentation that will take place over the next five years.

Archaeology 2.0: New Approaches to Communication and Collaboration

(2011)
How is the Web transforming the professional practice of archaeology? And as archaeologists accustomed to dealing with “deep time,” how can we best understand the possibilities and limitations of the Web in meeting the specialized needs of professionals in this field? These are among the many questions posed and addressed in Archaeology 2.0: New Approaches to Communication and Collaboration, edited by Eric Kansa, Sarah Whitcher Kansa, and Ethan Watrall. With contributions from a range of experts in archaeology and technology, this volume...

Greek Inscriptions Online (GIO)
AIO

Mission

The mission of GIO is to make the texts of ancient Greek inscriptions accessible to speakers of the Modern Greek language, especially to Greek university level students and faculty, as well as high school teachers and pupils. GIO also seeks to promote the study of Ancient Greek language and History by emphasizing the importance of translation of ancient epigraphic documents into modern languages. It stresses the value of translating as a scholarly exercise and the importance of translation for the dissemination of the knowledge and understanding of Greek Antiquity.

Collaboration with ΑΙΟ

GIO collaborates with Attic Inscriptions Online (AIO) a project founded in 2012 that publishes online translations of Attic inscriptions into English with a wealth of epigraphic, historic and bibliographic information and scholarly research. AIO has made available its unique design and infrastructure to GIO, and the two sites work closely together, sharing epigraphic texts in ancient Greek, as well as images and other data.

      International Journal for Digital Art History
      ISSN: 2363-5401
      http://www.dah-journal.org/images/No_1.jpg
      The peer reviewed journal seeks to gather current developments in the field of Digital Art History world-wide and to foster discourse on the subject both from Art History and Information Science.
      The Digital Age has revolutionized economy, society and our private lives. For decades now, digitalization has also touched most branches of the humanities. With the rising importance of the so called Digital Humanities, Art History is at the brink of new ways of accessing its material and gaining unprecedented insights. 

      Many approaches are currently evolving in the international sphere of Art History and many questions still remain unanswered: What requirements does Art History have towards Information Technology? What projects do exist that can serve as best practice? Which direction does Art History go from here? How can we build an international community to reach our shared goals in research? 

      Thus, the "International Journal of Digital Art History" (DAH) gives authors in this field the opportunity to reach a wider audience, spark a discussion on the future of our discipline and generate an international and interdisciplinary network of scholars and practitioners. 

      The journal is edited in order to gather articles around a common theme in each issue. In addition it is peer reviewd by at least two reviewers in a double-blind process. It is published online and in print. Contributions are welcome. For information on the current Call for Manuscripts and further details for authors, please see the respective pages on this website.

      Distant Worlds Journal Special Issues
      Die DWJ Special Issues sind Sonderhefte des Distant Worlds Journal (DWJ). Das Distant Worlds Journal (DWJ) selbst ist eine elektronische peer review-Zeitschrift, die DoktorandInnen und PostdoktorandInnen der Altertumswissenschaften eine Plattform zur Veröffentlichung ihrer Ideen und Ergebnisse bieten soll. Jede Ausgabe der Zeitschrift widmet sich einem übergeordneten Thema, das mit Bezug auf verschiedene antike Kulturen und von unterschiedlichen Perspektiven aus betrachtet werden kann.
      Distant Worlds bringt WissenschaftlerInnen verschiedener Fachrichtungen zusammen, um antike Gesellschaften und ihre materiellen Hinterlassenschaften in übergreifenden Fragestellungen zu diskutieren. Die DWJ Special Issues dienen dabei als mögliches Publikationsorgan für Workshops, Tagungen und Konferenzen, die von (ehemaligen) Mitgliedern der Graduate School for Ancient Studies Distant Worlds der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München abgehalten wurden. Es soll in diesem Sinne ebenfalls als ein interdisziplinäres Diskussionsforum dienen und allen dort teilnehmenden NachwuchswissenschaftlerInnen eine Stimme auf internationaler Ebene geben.

      Erzeugung und Zerstörung von Sakralität zwischen Antike und Mittelalter
      Beiträge der internationalen Tagung in München vom 20.–21.10.2015

      Distant Worlds Journal Special Issues, Band 1
      Sakralität ist nichts Absolutes. Sie ist weder von vornherein gegeben noch unveränderbar. Im Gegenteil: Sakralität ist eine soziale Konstruktion, die sich nur dort befindet, wo sie wahrgenommen und empfunden wird. Das  bedeutet zugleich, dass Sakralität manipuliert werden kann. Die Heiligkeit von Personen, Orten und Objekten kann neu geschaffen, transferiert, und verwandelt werden; sie kann aber auch wieder ausgelöscht und zerstört werden. Die Vernichtung von Sakralität impliziert zugleich die Anerkennung ihrer Wirkmacht durch die Zerstörenden; nur wenn die Heiligkeit eines Ortes, eines Objekts oder einer Person gänzlich in Vergessenheit gerät, ist sie wirklich eliminiert.

      The Semantics of Space in Greek and Roman Narratives

      Distant Worlds Journal Special Issues
      Im Rahmen des „spatial turns“ der Geisteswissenschaften wurde in letzter Zeit den Formen der literarischen Raumdarstellung wachsende Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt. Erzähltheoretische Studien haben u. A. gezeigt, dass Raum bei literarischen Erzählungen keinen bloßen realistischen oder dekorativen Rahmen bildet: Räume und Orte, in denen die erzählten Ereignisse spielen, können semantisiert – d.h. mit extra-räumlicher Bedeutung aufgeladen – werden und somit an der Erzeugung des Sinnes eines Textes teilnehmen. Dieses Buch widmet sich der Raumsemantik bei griechischen und römischen Erzählungen. Die Aufsätze behandeln Texte, die zu unterschiedlichen Gattungen der griechischen und römischen Literatur gehören, und die vom 5. Jh. v. Chr. bis zum 1. Jh. n. Chr. verfasst wurden. Durch die Analyse wird neues Licht auf antike Diskurse über Städte, Landschaften und Gesellschaften geworfen.

      Le désert Oriental d'Égypte occupe une vaste étendue de montagnes et de plaines sablonneuses entre le Nil et la mer Rouge. Ses richesses naturelles – or, gemmes et pierres de grande qualité (granite du Mons Claudianus, de Tiberianè ou de l’Ophiades, porphyre du Porphyritès, basanites [Grauwacke], etc.) – ont, malgré les difficultés dues aux dures conditions climatiques, été exploitées dès l’époque prédynastique.

      Open Access Publication of the Institut des civilisations, Collège de France
      Collège de France
      Cette collection est destinée à donner davantage de visibilité aux activités de recherche de l'Institut des civilisations du Collège de France, qui est constitué de quatre pôles :
      – le pôle de l’anthropologie autour de la chaire d’Anthropologie de la nature ;
      – le pôle de la Méditerranée ancienne englobant tout le bassin méditerranéen autour des civilisations hellénistique et romaine, des études byzantines et des études turques ;
      – le pôle du Proche-Orient ancien avec l’assyriologie, les études sémitiques, l’égyptologie ;
      – le pôle de l’Extrême-Orient ancien et moderne autour des études chinoises, des études japonaises et de l’histoire de l’Asie centrale préislamique.

      Ces domaines recouvrent l’histoire culturelle, sociale et anthropologique des cinq continents et les périodes couvertes vont de l'Antiquité la plus reculée à l'époque contemporaine. L’accent sera mis dans l'immédiat sur le monde méditerranéen et le Proche-Orient mais la collection aura vocation à s'élargir au périmètre entier de l'Institut.

      De même, si des recherches d'archéologie et de géographie historique sont au départ de cette collection, celle-ci est destinée à faire connaître la pluridisciplinarité de cet institut (édition de textes, travaux philologiques, synthèses historiques, recherches anthropologiques, etc.) au plus grand nombre. Cette collection rendra accessible à un public d’initiés ou non, les résultats de ces recherches qui restent bien trop souvent confidentiels.

      Pour distinguer les contextes historiques et géographiques, les ouvrages sont édités dans différentes séries, chacune correspondant à un projet éditorial, et sont regroupés en différentes sous-collections :

      The Ashmolean Latin Inscriptions Project
       
      The Ashmolean Latin Inscriptions Project (AshLI) is a three-way collaboration between Warwick University, Oxford University (Centre for the Study of Ancient documents/ Classics Faculty) and the Ashmolean Museum, supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
      The project aims to:
      • Research and catalogue all the Latin inscriptions in the Ashmolean Museum. Make this catalogue available online.
      • Set up new displays of Latin inscriptions in the Ashmolean.
      • Produce teaching resources that can be downloaded from the Ashmolean Education Department for use in Primary and Secondary schools. Devise new museum visits for students who are interested in the lives of the Romans.
      The project has received AHRC follow on funding to:
      • Organise two workshops to promote dialogue between museum curators and classical epigraphers.
      • Adapt the educational resources which we have developed, which were designed for the UK, for use in North America and Australasia.
      • Create a collection of replicas to aid interactive engagement, which will be available for Sutton Scholars, visually impaired visitors to the museum, & for educational visits.
      • Participate in the Warwick Sutton Scholars scheme by offering workshops on the Roman world

      California Classical Studies
      http://calclassicalstudies.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/CCS_logo_masthead2.jpg
      California Classical Studies publishes peer-reviewed long-form scholarship with online open access and print-on-demand availability. The primary aim of the series is to disseminate basic research (editing and analysis of primary materials both textual and physical), data-heavy research, and highly specialized research of the kind that is either hard to place with the leading publishers in Classics or extremely expensive for libraries and individuals when produced by a leading academic publisher. In addition to promoting archaeological publications, papyrological and epigraphic studies, technical textual studies, and the like, the series will also produce selected titles of a more general profile.
      Submissions (in English) are invited from all, and no affiliation with the University of California is required. For more information, please visit the CCS website at http://calclassicalstudies.org.

      Preliminary Studies on the Scholia to Euripides

      (2017)
      This work presents five studies that are parerga to the online edition of Euripidean scholia (EuripidesScholia.org), for which the release of a much more complete sample covering Orestes 1–500 is planned for 2018. The first chapter reviews the achievements and shortcomings of previous editions of Euripidean scholia and argues for a more comprehensive treatment of this and similar corpora of scholia and for the importance of glosses. It assesses the few surviving traces in the scholia of views attributed to philologists and commentators working from Hellenistic times to early Byzantium. The second chapter illuminates a genre of annotation...

      The Archaeology of Roman Surveillance in the Central Alentejo, Portugal

      (2017)
      During the first century B.C.E. a complex system of surveillance towers was established during Rome’s colonization of the central Alentejo region of Portugal. These towers provided visual control over the landscape, routes through it, and hidden or isolated places as part of the Roman colonization of the region.

      Alexander of Aphrodisias and the Text of Aristotle's Metaphysics

      (2016)
      Alexander of Aphrodisias’s commentary (about AD 200) is the earliest extant commentary on Aristotle’s Metaphysics, and it is the most valuable indirect witness to the Metaphysics text and its transmission. Mirjam Kotwick’s study is a systematic investigation into the version of the Metaphysics that Alexander used when writing his commentary, and into the various ways his text, his commentary, and the texts transmitted through our manuscripts relate to one another.  Through a careful analysis of lemmata, quotations, and Alexander’s discussion of Aristotle’s argument Kotwick shows how to uncover and partly reconstruct a Metaphysics version from the...

      A Commentary on the Satires of Juvenal

      (2013)
      Edward Courtney's study of the Satires of Juvenal is the only full-scale commentary on the corpus since the nineteenth century and retains its value for students and scholars a generation after its first appearance in 1980. This commentary incorporates the findings of classical study up to that time, including the work of A. E. Housman, new discoveries such as those of papyri, and the expanding horizons of classical research. Courtney elucidates the form of each poem and the progression of thought, and offers many suggestions for the adjustment of traditional punctuation. In addition to basic explanation of the text, the commentary offers a detailed...

      The Traffic in Praise: Pindar and the Poetics of Social Economy

      (2013)
      Pindar’s epinikian odes were poems commissioned to celebrate athletic victories in the first half of the fifth century BCE. Drawing on the insights of interpretive anthropology and cultural history, Leslie Kurke investigates how the socially embedded genre of epinikion responded to a period of tremendous social and cultural change. Kurke examines the odes as public performances which enact the reintegration of the athletic victor into his heterogeneous communities. These communities—the victor’s household, his aristocratic class, and his city—represent competing, sometimes conflicting interests, which the epinikian poet must satisfy to...

      An emerging Linked Pasts Network

      Linked Pasts Network refers to a growing collection of historical datasets published as Linked Open Data and the community of researchers across the globe whose projects are producing and using them. The nature of this emerging network is discussed in the Dec 2017 white paper, “From Linking Places to a Linked Pasts Network”
      This site and repo are just getting under way in 2018. Our first task is documenting all of the projects, individuals, and supporting organizations that are the nodes of the network. An interactive graph visualization will appear here soon, with the capability for community adds and edits. In the meantime, this static image presents a partial picture: Linked Pasts Network
