Digital Classicist 2012: Call for Papers

The annual Digital Classicist London seminar series on the subject of
research into the ancient world that has an innovative digital component
will run again in Summer 2012.

We warmly welcome contributions from students as well as from
established researchers and practitioners. Themes could include digital
text, linguistics technology, imaging and visualization, linked data,
open access, geographic analysis, serious gaming and any other digital
or quantitative methods. While we welcome high-quality application
papers discussing individual projects, the series also hopes to
accommodate broader theoretical consideration of the use of digital
technology in Classical studies. The content should be of interest both
to classicists, ancient historians or archaeologists, and to information
scientists or digital humanists, and have an academic research agenda
relevant to at least one of those fields.

The seminars will run on Friday afternoons (16:30-18:00) from June to
mid-July in Senate House, London, hosted by the Institute of Classical
Studies (ending early this year to avoid clashing with the Olympic
Games). In previous years collected papers from the seminars have been
published in a special issue of Digital Medievalist; a printed volume
from Ashgate Press; a BICS supplement (in production). The last few
years’ papers have been released as audio podcasts. We have had
expressions of interest in further print volumes from more than one

There is a budget to assist with travel to London (usually from within
the UK, but we have occasionally been able to assist international
presenters to attend, so please enquire).

To submit a paper for consideration for the Digital Classicist London
Seminars, please email an abstract of 300-500 words to
gabriel.bodard@kcl.ac.uk, by midnight UTC on April 1st, 2012.
