I’ve been asked to write some blog posts on digital classics for the website of the American Philological Association (soon to be the Society for Classical Studies). In the first post, “Digits and Dactyls,” I try to give some sense of the possibilities of digital humanities approaches to classicists who may not be familiar with them. A fellow APA blogger, Tim Whitmarsh, writes about the mixed blessing of the need for UK classicists to search out funding sources these days (“Taking Classics for Granted“). Despite the pressures, he finds a silver lining in the collaborations produced, and suggests that many of these are moving in a digital direction. It’s exciting to see the APA (ok, SCS) opening up further to the digital world.
