Pegasus-Onlinezeitschrift: Wissenschaftliches Periodikum zur Didaktik und Methodik der Fächer Latein und Griechisch
ISSN: 1861-499X
http://www.pegasus-onlinezeitschrift.de/pics/titelbanner.gif
Die Pegasus-Onlinezeitschrift ist ein wissenschaftliches Periodikum zur Didaktik und Methodik der Fächer Latein und Griechisch, wird vom Deutschen Altphilologenverband herausgegeben und ist erstmals im Dezember 2000 erschienen.
Die Pegasus-Onlinezeitschrift schafft eine Plattform zur ausführlichen und fundierten bildungstheoretischen Diskussion und didaktisch-methodischen Reflexion über die Fächer Latein und Griechisch:

Bildungstheoretische Erörterung zu Fragen der Vergangenheit, Gegenwart und Zukunft des altsprachlichen Unterrichts: Dabei laden wir zu einer fächerübergreifenden Diskussion ein. Zudem wollen wir den Dialog zwischen Schule, Universität und Bildungspolitik fördern.
Unterrichtspraxis: Beiträge sollen sich durch eine fundierte didaktische Begründung und Reflexion konkreter Unterrichtsinhalte sowie ihrer methodischen Umsetzung auszeichnen (z. B. Darstellung von Unterrichtssequenzen, methodisch aufbereiteten Textsammlungen, Projekten).
Fachwissenschaftliche Beiträge: Ergebnisse fachwissenschaftlicher Forschung sollen für die Theorie und Praxis des altsprachlichen Unterrichts nutzbar gemacht werden und der Förderung der Zusammenarbeit zwischen Schule und Universität dienen.

Die Pegasus-Onlinezeitschrift will konsequent die Vorteile moderner Kommunikationstechnologie nutzen: geringe Produktionskosten, hoher Verbreitungsgrad, schneller und kostenloser Zugriff, Möglichkeit der individuellen Anpassung der angebotenen Materialien an den eigenen Lehr- und Lernkontext, schnelle und flexible Kommunikation zwischen Redaktion und Leserschaft.

http://journal.topoi.org/public/journals/1/pageHeaderTitleImage_en_US.gif
eTopoi is a bilingual magazine which is published by the Excellence Cluster Topoi. It is an open access periodical, and all articles are available as PDF documents free of charge. eTopoi provides a forum of exchange between all disciplines in the area of classical and ancient studies, from pre- and early history to Egyptology and Near Eastern studies, to classical archaeology, classical philosophy, linguistics, literary studies, theories of science, and theology, and extending to other disciplines as well.
Envisioned for inclusion in particular are articles dealing with the shaping and transformation of spatial structures and knowledge systems in ancient societies, as well as with perceptions of and reflections on these phenomena. The focus is on innovative forms of interdisciplinary collaboration, including geoscientific-archaeological projects and ones in computational archaeology, in the history of knowledge, and in historical geography. The magazine hence mirrors the orientations of both research institutes, the disciplines they represent, and the networks of partner institutions with which they are affiliated. It is available as a platform to all interested researchers worldwide.

Open Access Journal: The Acquisitions List of the Oriental Institute Research Archives

The Acquisitions List of the Oriental Institute Research Archives 
http://oi.uchicago.edu/sites/oi.uchicago.edu/files/styles/slideshow-image/public/uploads/managed/slideshows/Research%20Archives%20Reading%20Room%20%282009%29%20-%20Small%20Long_0.jpg?itok=H8NuP-ja
As one of the elite libraries for the study of the ancient Near East, the Research Archives of the Oriental Institute seeks to comprehensively cover the languages and civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Syria-Palestine, Anatolia, Iran, the Arabian Peninsula and related areas from the earliest periods to the Hellenistic period through the acquisition of volumes both new and old.

The acquisitions list of the Research Archives was formally published from 1991 to 1994. From February 2000 until February 2002, this list was distributed via email and archived online. In recent years, the acquisitions list has only been distributed informally to Oriental Institute faculty, staff and students.

Because our acquisitions lists are used by librarians and scholars worldwide as a means by which to supplement their acquisitioning efforts, we have decided to once again make the acquisitions lists of the Research Archives publicly available online in pdf format. We hope that this activity will be permanent and ongoing.

Relaunch: Diotíma (v. 3.0)

Diotíma (v. 3.0)
Welcome to Diotíma (v. 3.0), a resource for information on women, gender, sex, sexualities, race, ethnicity, class, status, masculinity, enslavement, disability, and the intersections among them in the ancient Mediterranean world.
Why Diotíma? She’s the sage who taught Socrates the “philosophy of love” in Plato’s Symposium. She’s probably not real. Why docta femina in the site’s address? She’s the educated woman audience of the Roman elegists. She’s not real either. But hopefully through the materials on the site, you can find information about real ancient Greeks and Romans for your research, teaching, and personal interest.
If you are interested in contributing course materials, syllabi, translations, or curated bibliographies, please contact the editor, Serena S. Witzke at switzke@wesleyan.edu. All submissions are subject to approval by the site admin.

A History of Diotíma

Diotíma: Materials for the Study of Women and Gender in the Ancient World (v. 1.0) was launched by Ross Scaife and Suzanne Bonefas in early 1995 and was maintained by Scaife until his death in 2008. The site ceased to be updated after 2011 and the server rights have since lapsed. An archival copy of the old Diotíma and all its materials can be accessed via the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine at https://web.archive.org/web/20190628224208/http://www.stoa.org/diotima/.
In 2017, the Women’s Classical Caucus took over maintenance of a “new and improved” Diotima (v. 2.0), which may be accessed at https://diotimawcc.wordpress.com/. Some content was migrated from the original Diotíma, but most remains accessible only through the Wayback Machine.
In late 2019 the decision was made to move the website, ad-free, to the home server of the WCC. I am migrating content from Diotíma v.2.0 and the original Diotíma to our new page. Please bear with me with patience while I navigate the process of migration. If there are materials you wish to prioritize, please email me at the address above.

This interactive website is an international collaboration between students enrolled in Women in Antiquity courses across North America. Originally created by Mount Allison University students in the spring of 2017 under the instruction of Chelsea Gardner, further contributions were added by Rutgers University-Camden students in Fall 2017 under the instruction of Abbe Walker and, again, by Mount Allison University students in the fall 2018 under the instruction of John Fabiano. Each student researched a topic of their choice relating to the overall course subject, and then populated a page of their own; their research is academic, but the web pages are intended for a general audience. Please take a look around, explore and learn about the lives and myths of women and goddesses from ancient Greece and Rome. We welcome any and all suggestions, so please feel free to comment on the pages. Enjoy!

Art of the Ancient Near East: A Resource for Educators
Benzel, Kim, Sarah B. Graff, Yelena Rakic, and Edith W. Watts (2010)
Many features of civilization originated in the lands we call the ancient Near East, a vast and varied area from Turkey to the Indus Valley of present-day Pakistan and from the Caucasus to the Arabian Peninsula. This essential guide for K–12 educators introduces the variety and diversity of art produced by the rich and complex cultures that flourished in this region during an equally vast time period, from the eighth millennium B.C. to the middle of the seventh century A.D. Learn about the cultural, archaeological, and historical contexts for a selection of thirty works of art in the form of sculpture, silver and gold ritual vessels and objects, monumental reliefs, cuneiform tablets, and stamp and cylinder seals. Curriculum connections, discussion questions, lesson plans, and activities for a range of grade levels provide useful strategies for teaching in the classroom. The resource also includes a bibliography and glossary.
These educational materials are made possible by Rolin Foundation USA.
