Digital Approaches to Ancient and Modern Texts - 12/12/2018, Manchester (England)
This event showcases a number of digital approaches to the interpretation, decipherment and analysis of ancient and modern texts, in particular those which are extant in material form. It will begin with a keynote from Charlotte Tupman, Research Fellow in Digital Humanities at the University of Exeter. We hope that the event will attract an audience of classicists and ancient historians, but we anticipate that by showcasing classicists' deployment of digital approaches we would also be able to initiate conversations with those who take digitally-informed approaches to medieval and modern texts.
LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: Room W2.19, Samuel Alexander Building, University of Manchester (Manchester, England)
