    25th Anniversary of the ANE mailing list

    0
    0
    Today is the twenty-fifth anniversary of the launch of the ANE list. John Sanders and I pulled the idea together at the Oriental Institute, using borrowed equipment and software. You can still read the archive of the original configuration at:http://oi.uchicago.edu/research/library/ane/
    It operated in the original form from 2 July 1993 - 16 February 2006.

    Its current form ANE-2 began in anticipation of the closing of the original list on 15 February 2006, and is publicly archived at:
    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ANE-2/
    I wrote a little bit about it in 1999 at:
    http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue21/web-editor

    It might be time for another reflection on the history of the list, but not today.

    Happy birthday to ANE and its inhabitants!

    AELAW: Ancient European Languages And Writings
    AELAW has been developed with the aim of co-ordinating a wide group of international researchers dedicated to the study of the different ancient European languages and writings with the objective of creating an ample work team capable of establishing the foundations for the creation, for the first time, of a large online databank which will permit the cataloguing of all the currently known documents in this type of languages, thus introducing this important part of the European cultural heritage into the 21st century.

    The construction of the Roman Empire generated a complex dialectic between local and global tendencies which presents more than a few points of contact with the world today. In the field of languages and written culture it supposed, on one hand, the affirmation of a society with an elevated literacy rate, a noteworthy literary culture and a growing use of public writing as an instrument of communications, social affirmation and commemoration; and, on the other, a long process of coexistence between languages of general use (Latin and Greek) and many other local ones which gave rise to phenomena of bilingualism and multilingualism in a context in which the language did not play the identifying role it has developed in the Europe of nations. The result of this coexistence in western Europe was the triumph of the Latin language and alphabet with varied results for the local languages: in some cases extinct at the begininning of our Era (Etruscan or Iberian) and in other cases conserved until the end of the Ancient period (Gallic or Punic) or, exceptionally until today (Basque).

    Frontiers in Digital Humanities: Digital Archaeology
    Digital Archeology is a specialty section of Frontiers in Digital Humanities.Frontiers in Digital Archaeology is a specialty section of Frontiers in Digital Humanities that offers a forum for showcasing, discussing, and developing computer and network based approaches to archaeological research, conservation, and dissemination. In our quest to understand how humans became who we are, archaeologists have always been early adopters of promising new technologies. Computers and the internet have been no exception to this rule. The Digital Archaeology specialty section will publish a variety of contributions from thought pieces about the direction of Digital Archaeology, to innovations in digital field, lab, or curatorial methods, experimental results in computational archaeology, and any high quality examples of the application of computer or network based tools to archaeological research and education. Scholarship on the Archaeology of the Digital is welcome as part of the study of the human past. Through publishing a mix of vision and concrete results, we hope to contribute significantly to the development of a truly Digital Archaeology.Digital Archeology welcomes submissions of the following tier 1 articles: Book Review, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis & Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review and Technology Report.

    All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Digital Archeology, where they are peer reviewed by the associate and review editors of the specialty section.

    Articles published in the section Digital Archeology will be subject to the Frontiers evaluation system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a prestigious Frontiers Focused Review - a tier 2 article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Digital Humanities.

    Aitia. Regards sur la culture hellénistique au XXIème siècle
    ISSN electronic edition: 1775-4275
    Aitia. Regards sur la culture hellénistique au XXIe siècle est une revue internationale électronique. Elle s’intéresse à l’ensemble de la culture hellénistique. Les études hellénisitiques ont fait durant les deux dernières décennies des progrès considérables et ont connu d’importants bouleversements. Toute cette importante partie de la littérature, de l’art et de la philosophie est longtemps restée dans l’indifférence des chercheurs et universitaires en raison de son caractère déjà tardif et de sa complexité. La notion même de « période hellénistique » – qui débute au moment de la mort d’Alexandre, en 323 avant J.-C. et s’achève autour de 30 av. J.-C. – est assez récente. C’est pourtant un moment essentiel de l’histoire culturelle à l’articulation entre le monde classique grec et le monde romain, un moment essentiel où, notamment, se mettent en place la critique littéraire et l’approche scientifique des textes dans le cadre de la Bibliothèque du Musée à Alexandrie.

    Hellenistica Posnaniensia : aspects du lyrisme hellénistique
    Hellenistica Posnaniensia: Aspetti della lirica ellenistica
    The wide and varied thematic nature of the collected papers is ranging from detailed studies of individual works or authors to more general aspects, such as contrasting twists of the stanza in post-classical lyric, the evolution of performance modes and attempts to recreate the old forms, reconfiguration of generic features, meta-textual reflections on the continuity and transformation of the tradition, preservation and change of the lyric categories or reception.
    La nature thématique large et variée des articles recueillis va des études détaillées d'œuvres individuelles ou d'auteurs à des aspects plus généraux, tels que les changements contrastés de la strophe de la lyrique post-classique, l'évolution des modes de performance et les tentatives de recréer les anciennes formes, la reconfiguration d'éléments génériques, des réflexions méta-textuelles sur la continuité et la transformation de la tradition, la préservation et le changement des catégories lyriques ou la réception.
    L'ampia e variegata natura tematica delle comunicazioni raccolte varia da studi dettagliati di singole opere o autori ad aspetti più generali, come le torsioni contrastanti della strofa nella lirica post-classica, l'evoluzione delle modalità di prestazione e i tentativi di ricreare le vecchie forme, la riconfigurazione di caratteristiche generiche, le riflessioni meta-testuali sulla continuità e sulla trasformazione della tradizione, la conservazione e il cambiamento delle categorie liriche o la ricezione.

    About the book

    Archaeologists in Print is a history of popular publishing in archaeology in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, a pivotal period of expansion and development in both archaeology and publishing. It examines how British archaeologists produced books and popular periodical articles for a non-scholarly audience, and explores the rise in archaeologists’ public visibility. Notably, it analyses women’s experiences in archaeology alongside better known male contemporaries as shown in their books and archives. In the background of this narrative is the history of Britain’s imperial expansion and contraction, and the evolution of modern tourism in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East. Archaeologists exploited these factors to gain public and financial support and interest, and build and maintain a reading public for their work, supported by the seasonal nature of excavation and tourism. Reinforcing these publishing activities through personal appearances in the lecture hall, exhibition space and site tour, and in new media – film, radio and television – archaeologists shaped public understanding of archaeology. It was spadework, scripted.  
    The image of the archaeologist as adventurous explorer of foreign lands, part spy, part foreigner, eternally alluring, solidified during this period. That legacy continues, undimmed, today.

    The TexMeroe project aims to gain a better knowledge of the Sudanese ancient kingdom of Meroe (c. 300 BCE – 550 CE), exploring its social organisation and economic system through the study of textile production. The many well-preserved textiles, tools and costume representations discovered on archaeological sites throughout Sudan and Nubia provide new evidences that shed light on this little- known side of Meroitic history. Their analysis will open new avenues of research encompassing a great range of key issues, from agriculture and manufacturing techniques, to the organisation of labour and trade, and the definition and communication of social status.
    The research follows the entire life cycle of the textiles, from raw material collection, to the spinning, dyeing, weaving and sewing of the cloth, all the way through the multiple every day uses and reuses of the fabrics to their final internment. The chosen methodology is first and foremost archaeological, but the project also combines the methods of other fields, such as comparative history, art history, ancient textile studies, material studies, anthropological theory, and archaeobotany.

    ASOR Cultural Heritage Initiatives
    ASOR Cultural Heritage Initiatives Logo
    Initiated in 2014, ASOR’s Cultural Heritage Initiatives (ASOR CHI) is an international collaboration of scholars and institutions who work under the auspices of ASOR. Through two cooperative agreements with the U.S. Department of State and with the generous support of non-federal organizations and donors (especially the Getty Conservation Institute, The Whiting Foundation, and the Kaplan Fund), ASOR CHI undertakes projects to document, protect, and preserve the cultural heritage of war-torn Syria, northern Iraq, and Libya. Hundreds of significant heritage sites have been damaged since fighting began in 2011. Although the destruction of cultural property represents only part of the humanitarian crisis, these harmful actions threaten our common world heritage and cultural diversity. We have an ethical obligation to respond, and our project is part of an international effort to work with Syrians, Iraqis, and Libyans (and other peoples) to protect their heritage and cultural identity. 
    Since ASOR CHI’s work began,we have carried out three emergency response initiatives in Syria and produced over 1,000 reports on the cultural heritage situation in Syria and northern Iraq. In addition, We have inventoried 13,000 sites in Syria and northern Iraq, conducted 9,000 satellite assessments, completed 750 detailed condition assessments, made 4,150 heritage observations, and compiled 10,000 archived media entries on cultural heritage incidents and assets. All of these data have been used to assist local cultural heritage experts in emergency response efforts and to help combat the trafficking of illicit antiquities by terrorists. The incident reports and special reports have affected U.S. policy and law and are posted online.
    ASOR’s Cultural Heritage Initiatives implements cultural property protection by:
         1. Documenting damage
         2. Promoting global awareness
         3. Planning emergency and post-war responses
    1. Documenting Damage
    • Collecting information from news and social media sources
    • Communicating with heritage specialists, networks of volunteers, and other organizations in Syria and northern Iraq
    • Analyzing satellite imagery to monitor, document, and verify heritage damage
    • Synthesizing data generated from the above activities to track the evolving cultural heritage situation in Syria
    • Producing a comprehensive inventory of heritage sites and damage that integrates all of the above
    2. Promoting Global Awareness
    • Producing weekly reports that provide timely updates on the status of heritage damage and threats in Syria
    • Providing periodic reports that synthesize trends, patterns, and needs within the overall heritage situation
    • Sharing our findings and conclusions in public symposia, international conferences, and colloquia
    • Communicating with the public through English and Arabic-language social media and news sources
    • Coordinating with other organizations that are working to safeguard Syrian heritage
    3. Planning Emergency and Post-war Responses
    • Assessing the major preservation issues affecting cultural heritage
    • Designing protocols for rapid documentation of damage and preservation needs that can be implemented in the future
    • Developing proposals for future large-scale preservation projects
    • Providing resources for high-impact mitigation projects
    • Identifying human resource priorities to strengthen future cultural heritage management capacity for Syria
