Marie de France – Manuscript Sources
http://www.utm.edu/staff/bobp/vlibrary/mdfrancemss.shtml

was just launched. The purpose of this page is to present a number of links to medieval manuscript facsimiles containing Marie’s work, some illustrated, accompanied by other relevant resources. It is part of the Andy Holt Virtual Library’s “Manuscripts of Medieval France with Vernacular Texts”, a collection of over 1000 links to manuscript facsimiles, which will include nearly all of the French medieval literary canon, and much more.

Edition of the Registers of the counts of Holland 1299-1345

Recently a digital edition has been completed of the registers made by the clerks of the counts of Holland and Zeeland in the first half of the fourteenth century. This concerns 25 volumes, together counting some 2000 pages, in which mainly charters issued by the count were registered, but also other documents. In this publication, made by J.W.J. Burgers, one finds not only the edition of all 3515 texts, written in Dutch, Latin or French, but also a complete set of images of the registers.

Digital Classicist seminar: Neel Smith: Scholarly reasoning and writing

Digital Classicist seminar

Neel Smith (Holy Cross): Scholarly reasoning and writing in an automatically assembled and tested digital library
Friday August 2 at 16:30 in room G37, Senate House, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HU

ALL WELCOME

For more than 30 years, computer scientists have discussed “literate programming,” an approach that treats computer programs as works of literature, as well as sources for machine instructions. I propose an approach to writing in the humanities that inverts that model, and treats scholarly prose as a source for machine-actionable citations, as well as a logical argument. I will draw illustrations from the Homer Multitext project, and will briefly survey how all of the information in its editorial work on Homeric manuscripts is translated into hundreds of thousands of RDF statements with citable URNs as their subject.

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.

For more information please contact Gabriel.Bodard@kcl.ac.uk, Stuart.Dunn@kcl.ac.uk, S.Mahony@ucl.ac.uk or Charlotte.Tupman@kcl.ac.uk, or see the seminar website at http://www.digitalclassicist.org/wip/wip2013.html

Teaching with the Perseids Platform (seminar)

Digital Classicist London & Institute of Classical Studies Seminar 2013
Friday July 26 at 16:30 in room G37, Senate House, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HU

Marie-Claire Beaulieu (Tufts)
Teaching with the Perseids Platform: Tools and methods

ALL WELCOME

The Perseids online collaborative environment offers a new pedagogical model for Classics in which students participate directly in the creation of knowledge. This presentation will detail two uses cases of Perseids. The first use case, in which a class collaborates to edit, translate, and annotate documents offers students an occasion to step out of the traditional Classical canon to process materials such as manuscripts and inscriptions. The second use case, dynamic syllabi using managed resources, lets professors assign texts for students to read and annotate, design tests, and gather data for student evaluation. This use case will be demonstrated for a language class and a Classical Mythology course.

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.

For more information please contact Gabriel.Bodard@kcl.ac.uk, Stuart.Dunn@kcl.ac.uk, S.Mahony@ucl.ac.uk or Charlotte.Tupman@kcl.ac.uk, or see the seminar website at http://www.digitalclassicist.org/wip/wip2013.html
