Details of the first in this year’s Digital Classicist seminar series follow:
Chiara Salvagni (KCL) ‘Digital Critical Editions of Homer’
Friday June 1st at 16:30
Room G37, Senate House, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HU
“I intend to discuss how the scholia to the Odyssey of Homer can be encoded in order to be part of a digital edition of the first book of the Odyssey, with special concern for their critical apparatus, starting with an analysis of how a printed edition of the scholia works. I will take into account the possibility of using the Open Source Critical Edition methodological framework for my work on the Odyssey, and the specific characteristic of the Homeric text, its oral origin and the Homeric question on the existence or non existence of Homer.”
The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
All are welcome.
