News from the CDLI: Mellon-funded digitization of the Geneva cuneiform collection

Mellon-funded digitization of the Geneva cuneiform collection
We are delighted to announce a successful digitization collaboration between the Musées d’Art et d’Histoire of Geneva (MAH) and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-supported research project "Creating a Sustainable Digital Cuneiform Library (CSDCL)."

Under the general direction of the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative (CDLI - Los Angeles/Berlin), CSDCL is dedicated to the digital capture, persistent archiving and web dissemination of major cuneiform collections in the US, Europe and the Middle East. The 950 cuneiform artifacts of the MAH, originally collected by the noted Swiss Assyrioliogist Alfred Boissier (1867-1945, PhD 1890 at Leipzig under F. Delitzsch) and acquired by the Museum in 1938, represent a significant archive of texts in a major Swiss collection. In communications dating back to early 2008 between one of us (Englund) and Antoine Cavigneaux of the University of Geneva, the capture of the MAH cuneiform collection was discussed and a plan for this collaboration presented by Cavigneaux to the Museum early in 2011. With the support of Geneva graduate student Émilie Pagé-Perron, CDLI's catalogue documenting the MAH collection, then numbering 391 entries of published texts dating to the 3rd millennium BC as well as to the Old Assyrian period, was supplemented with the full electronic catalogue of artifacts supplied by the Museum. Once an agreement of cooperation was signed between CDLI and MAH, CSDCL's Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (Berlin) postdoctoral researcher Ludek Vacin arranged for two capture missions to Geneva, that took place in July and November of 2011. Following fatcross-processing and cleansing in Los Angeles of the raw images created by Vacin, these files have now been posted to the CDLI website, and can be viewed at <http://cdli.ucla.edu/collections/mah/mah_fr.html>. Pagé-Perron and Emmert Clevenstine of the University of Geneva are correcting the bibliographical and text content references in the MAH catalogue, and the imaging of some few remaining texts by Ms. Pagé-Perron will complete the formal capture of the originals.

MAH enthusiastically joined this effort to make available its complete cuneiform collection to the world-wide community of web researchers and informal learners. This new web content will assist cuneiform specialists in the collation of existing  editions, including ca. 290 Ur III records published by H. Sauren in MVN 2 (1974); 52 Old Assyrian texts by P. Garelli in RA 59-60 (1965-1966); 20 Ur III letters by E. Sollberger, TCS 1 (1966), as well as 8 ED IIIb accounts by the same author in Genava 26 (1948); and 30 texts from various periods by W. Deonna in Genava 17 (1939) (in JCS 5 [1951], Sollberger published catalogue treatments of a large number of still unedited MAH tablets). We believe that general access to images of all text artifacts establishes the broadest possible foundation for integrative research on MAH and related cuneiform inscriptions by the scholarly community, and we are particularly keen to assist specialists in the preparation of scholarly editions of the nearly 500 documents currently listed as "unpublished unassigned" in our catalogue entries (<http://tinyurl.com/6ugtndn>)

We are confident that our adherence in this collaboration to the principles of open access expressed, for instance, in the "Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities," promulgated by the German Max Planck Society (<http://oa.mpg.de/lang/en-uk/berlin-prozess/berliner-erklarung/>), best serves all in the Humanities, but particularly those in the fields of dead language research so dependent on access to source materials for their work. In opening to world-wide inspection cuneiform collections such as that located in Geneva, we join other cultural heritage and research institutions in CDLI's 'extended family' who believe that humanists should make every effort to fulfill their curatorial and scholarly responsibilities to permanently archive, and to make available to the public all artifacts of shared world history that are in their immediate, or indirect care.

The Sealands Archaeology and Environment Program Online

The Sealands Archaeology and Environment Program:  Connecting viable pasts to sustainable futures
The Sealands Archaeology and Environment Program conducts archaeological, geoarchaeological, and paleoenvironmental research, in order to understand how cities in Iraq sustained themselves through deep time. The results of this work will guide projects to restore environmental services to Iraq's southern cities, promote resilient environmental management strategies, and support sustainable lifeways for the future.


We take our name from the marsh realm between Sumer and Elam, known during the second millennium BCE as “The Sealands” or “Mat Tamti,” which encompassed much of the area of the now-dry Hammar marshes. Based on inscriptions from the site, Roux suggested that Tell Abu Salabikh, formerly at the center of Lake Hammar, was seat of the historical figure Marduk-apla-iddina II (biblical Merodach-Baladan), and center city of The Sealands.
Always a place of refuge and sustenance at the heart of the Mesopotamian marshlands, The Sealands, and their highly productive marshland lifeways, remain virtually unexplored by archaeologists.


Open Access Journal: Comparative Oriental Manuscript Studies Newsletter

[First posted in AWOL 2 March 2011. Updated 24 January 2012]

Comparative Oriental Manuscript Studies Newsletter
 The program, scheduled for the years 2009-2014, aims at facilitating cross-cultural academic dialogue and active exchange in the field of Oriental manuscript studies with the focus on the Mediterranean and North African cultural areas. So far no such exchange has been conducted systematically on a European level, having become an urgent desideratum. Standards in all subfields of manuscript studies differ from one study area to another and from one national scholarly tradition to another. Oriental studies are considerably behind Occidental manuscript studies, where, e.g., Greek and Latin philology have reached a high standard. Since some regional and linguistic cultures have been studied more intensively than the others in different aspects, an exchange within the framework of Oriental philology will give possibility for Europe-wide development through network activities. The co-ordination will on the one hand enable a high degree of standardization between the cultural and language areas and on the other hand facilitate the explication of culture-specific methodologies. In some areas, already advanced in classical and medieval European philology, such as, e.g., digital philology including digitisation of manuscripts and computer-supported text-editorial practices, Oriental studies are still at the very beginning. The joint European efforts will lead to a break-through in the field.
Not only specialists working in different cultural fields but also those dealing with different subdisciplines of manuscript studies will combine their expertise working in five internationally composed research teams (1: codicology and palaeography, 2: philology/text criticism, 3: digital approach to manuscript studies, 4: cataloguing, 5: manuscript preservation). 
In a series of workshops, meetings and conferences, common approaches will be achieved that will serve as standard for contemporary and future Orientalists and manuscript scholars. 
Relevant by-products of the RNP will include a series of publications, digital databases and a textbook in Oriental manuscript studies. The aims set can only be achieved through a Europe-wide co-operation.

Buletinul Muzeului Judetean Teleorman - Seria Arheologie
ISSN 2065-5290
http://www.muzeulteleorman.ro/images/img19257390.png

În anul 1934, în timpul sărbătoririi centenarului oraşului Alexandria, consiliul comunal hotărăşte să înfiinţeze un muzeu al oraşului care să expună şi să păstreze documentele găsite în diferite arhive, cât şi unele materiale ce dovedeau existenţa şi cultura populaţiei de pe aceste meleaguri. Muzeul a fost instalat, la început, într-o încăpere din localul primăriei, iar în anul 1936 a fost strămutat într-o încăpere a Palatului Cultural „Victor Antonescu”.
 La data de 1 mai 1952 s-a deschis, în mod real, un Muzeu de Istorie a Alexandriei, în care erau expuse documente privind întemeierea oraşului, monede, ceramică, dovezi materiale din diferite epoci istorice.
Din anul 1974, Muzeul Orăşenesc de Istorie Alexandria devine Muzeul Judeţean de Istorie Teleorman. Conservă o importantă colecţie de arheologie, preponderent din epoca neolitică şi epoca geto-dacică, cu numeroase obiecte provenite din staţiunile de la Ciolănesti Deal, Măgura, Siliştea, Vităneşti, Albeşti, Orbeasca de Sus, Zimnicea etc., dar şi o colecţie de numismatică reprezentată printr-o serie de tezaure monetare descoperite la Alexandria, Balta Sărată, Poiana, Poroschia, Schitu, Sfinţeşti, Ulmeni etc. O valoroasă colecţie etnografică zonală este valorificată printr-o expoziţie permanentă pavilionară.
Între anii 1998 - 2004 a participat la un proiect internaţional româno-britanic de cercetare a locuirii neo-eneolitice de pe Valea Teleormanului alături de Muzeul Naţional de Istorie a României şi Universitatea din Cardiff.
În perioada 2003 - 2004 a derulat un program de cercetare a procesului de colectivizare a agriculturii în judeţul Teleorman, program finanţat de către Guvernul Statelor Unite ale Americii prin intermediul Secţiei Afaceri Publice din Bucureşti şi al Asociaţiei "Prietenii Muzeului".
În prezent derulează mai multe proiecte internaţionale sau naţionale de cercetare arheologică ce vizează mai multe epoci: paleoliticul (împreună cu Misiunea Arheologică Franceză în Romania şi Institutul de Arheologie „Vasile Pârvan”, Bucureşti), neo-eneoliticul (împreună cu Muzeul Naţional de Istorie a României), evul mediu (împreună cu Muzeul Brăilei).

Open Access Journal: Ágora. Estudos Clássicos em Debate

[First posted in AWOL 29 October 2009. Updated 22 January 2012]

Ágora. Estudos Clássicos em Debate
http://www2.dlc.ua.pt/classicos/Atena.jpg

Ágora. Estudos Clássicos em Debate é uma nova revista que pretende estar aberta, em visão alargada, a todas as temáticas relacionadas com os estudos clássicos desde os primórdios da Literatura e da Cultura Grego-latinas até à recepção que estas literaturas e culturas continuam a ter na actualidade nas civilizações de matriz ocidental, sem esquecer as problemáticas ligadas ao ensino do Grego e do Latim e a inserção destas duas línguas nos diversos curricula dos diferentes graus de ensino.

Ágora. Estudos Clássicos em Debate é a revista da área de Estudos Clássicos do Departamento de Línguas e Culturas da Universidade de Aveiro, mas — sem prejuízo de pretendermos ter aqui um espaço privilegiado de divulgação dos nossos trabalhos — não desejamos fechar-nos sobre nós próprios antes almejamos que este espaço sirva para reflexão, debate e partilha de saberes não só de estudiosos de outras escolas nacionais, mas também de universidades estrangeiras, como acontece, aliás, já neste primeiro número. Assim, estamos abertos à colaboração externa quer através da formalização de convites quer através da análise de artigos que nos forem enviados por uma equipa de individualidades ligadas aos estudos clássicos.  Pretendemos, assim, construir uma revista que, paulatinamente, possa começar a ser reconhecida pela qualidade dos contributos nela publicados.

Para além da publicação de artigos, criamos, desde já, duas outras secções: uma dedicada à recensão de livros e a outra consagrada a notícias sobre acontecimentos relacionados com os estudos clássicos.

Nesta linha de partilha de saberes e de enriquecimento mútuo, estamos, naturalmente, disponíveis para a permuta com outras revistas de estudos clássicos e comprometemo-nos a dar notícia de todos os livros com temática clássica que forem oferecidos à redacção.

Opinions of ancient philosophers

Opinions of ancient philosophers (Prototype of a collection of all ancient testimonies related to philosophers of greco-roman world)
This collection of testimonies aims at collecting in a database the text of the sources related to the so-called presocratic philosophers. 

This collection of testimonies has been at first limited to Milesian (Thales, Anaximander, Anaximenes) and Eleatic philosophers (Xenophanes, Parmenides, Zeno, Melissus). This limitation was only a practical one. This web site, and the database attached to it, is only to be considered as a prototype of what an exhaustive collection of testimonies related to presocratic philosophers should look like. The work has not to be considered as a finished one : indexations, at many levels, have not been completed, texts are still lacking, etc. 

Any remark or critical comment will be appreciated. 

Cette collection de témoignages vise à rassembler au sein d’une base de données informatique le texte des sources relatives aux philosophes dits présocratiques ou préplatoniciens. 

Dans un premier temps, la collecte des témoignages ne sera cependant systématique que pour les philosophes Milésiens (Thalès, Anaximandre, Anaximène) et Eléates (Xénophane, Parménide, Zénon, Mélissos). Cette limitation pratique tient au caractère de « prototype » de cette base de données, qui reste en voie d’élaboration tant pour ce qui concerne les entrées de textes que les formes de leur indexation. Nous la publions seulement à titre de proposition, soumise à la critique.
