Digital Classics: What is it?September 10, 2010
If you, like me, are trying to wrap your mind around the Digital Humanities/Digital Classics revolution, there’s a great new resource available. Matteo Romanello, a PhD Student at King’s College, London, is assembling a bibliography on Digital Classics as part of his research. He has created a group using the online citation software Zotero (which has social features allowing users to share citations), and is also replicating the list at the Digital Classicist Wiki. In his post at stoa.org announcing this project, he also notes the existence of a larger and more comprehensive bibliography on Digital Humanities that Alison Babeu has assembled at CiteULike.
I’d love to see some annotations – even one-sentence summaries – describing what the articles are about! Titles can be so opaque sometimes. But that’s the annotated-bibliography obsessed librarian in me. Perhaps if I can find the time to read the articles, I can add some annotations myself (one of the joys of a wiki!) I’m glad to see inclusion of DOIs and links to online publishers for many of the citations; links to WorldCat.org records for the books/book chapters would be lovely, too.
