Digitally-Supported Research Opportunities for Undergraduates in Classics

Lace: Greek OCR

Lace is a project that currently produces accessible and free ancient Greek texts. Students with very little knowledge of ancient Greek (even as early as the second week of first-year Greek) can take part in this research project. It offers great opportunities to improve one's language skills: students learn to identify and recognise Greek letters and to enter it into a website. It provides excellent training in working not only with ancient Greek as a language, but also with raw data.

The Homer Multitext Project

The Homer Multitext project seeks to present the Homeric Iliad and Odyssey in a critical framework that accounts for the fact that these poems were composed orally over the course of hundreds, if not thousands of years by countless singers who composed in performance. The evolution and the resulting multiformity of the textual tradition, reflected in the many surviving texts of Homer, must be understood in its many different historical contexts. Using technology that takes advantage of the best available practices and open source standards that have been developed for digital publications in a variety of fields, the Homer Multitext offers free access to a library of texts and images and tools to allow readers to discover and engage with the Homeric tradition. A recent report says only 5% of Byzantine science manuscripts have been published, and this project offers students the opportunity to unlock these treasures for all time!

The Tesserarum Sisciae Sylloge project

The aim of the project is to present an electronic corpus, i.e. a free access online digital database to the largest collection of Roman commercial tags preserved in the world, namely the collection of tesserae from Siscia. This project provides students with the opportunity to see and to transcribe these tags written in Latin!

Associations

There are many professional associations devoted to furthering our knowledge of antiquity and disseminating research.  Many mount annual conferences (the hosting city varies from year to year), put on dedicated panels at conferences, or host lecture series throughout the academic year.  Many of the associations also offer scholarships or awards to outstanding students, or provide other opportunities for students to advance their studies (the Classical Association of Canada, for example, runs annual, nation-wide translation competitions in ancient Latin and Greek for undergraduate students, in addition to an annual essay writing competition).  Links to the major North American (and local Western Canadian) associations are provided below.  All offer membership to students at reduced annual rates; members receive the associations’ publications, in the form of journals or newsletters.
