Towards a digital publication for the Homeric Catalogue of Ships

Ioannis Doukas (King's College London)

Digital Classicist/ICS Work in Progress Seminar, Summer 2008

Friday 15th August at 16:30, in room NG16 Senate House, Malet Street, London

In this paper we shall explore the possibilities opened in the digital scholarship of Ancient Greek literature. We shall focus on the Homeric Catalogue of Ships (Il. 2.484-759), as it is a text that calls for a series of different scholarly approaches, and try to identify and present the use of the appropriate digital tools to accomplish these approaches.


The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
