Technical approaches concerning Digital Classics

Students will be introduced to a range of technical approaches concerning Digital Classics (TEI XML, EpiDoc, treebanking, linguistic annotation, translation alignment, text reuse representation, etc.). Students are invited to consider how each technical approach offers new ways of “reading” texts or material evidence from the ancient world, and provides cross-disciplinary approaches to the relationship between historical and literary culture. The course will be offered through common sessions online via Google Hangouts, studying particular topics at the boundaries of history and culture for 75 minutes each week. Students will work on a practical project implementing some of the skills learned in the course, by agreement with the course tutor, which will be assessed along with a short report on the work.
