Classics graduate students have received a seed grant to produce a digital multitext edition of Book 1 of Propertius that could be used by scholars and students.
We are funded by the Whitney Humanities Centre, the Classics Library, and the Digital Humanities Lab. We will be hosting both regular theory meetings to discuss digital humanities generally and also irregular coding sessions. We will also be inviting leading classicists in digital humanities to give talks and help train us. Absolutely no prior knowledge of coding is necessary nor is this a closed group for classicists – all pre modernists are welcome. This is an exciting project and we hope as many as possible (faculty, grad students, undergrads – all welcome) can get involved! It will take us dizzyingly from lofty theories of textuality, hermeneutics and the technology of the book to the down and dirty of digital coding.
