Survey: Integrating digital humanities into the web of scholarship with SHARE

NEH: Integrating digital humanities into the web of scholarship with SHARE
Digital humanities scholarship is interdisciplinary, multimodal and distributed across a wide network of tools, repositories, and websites. By working closely with scholars and librarians in the DH community, the project team is investigating requirements for:
  - scholars to link all the components of their work
- librarians to have a means to accurately track usage of all the components of a DH project
- scholars and students to quickly find the relevant scholarship and primary sources they need
- new project leaders to quickly gain an understanding of all the existing content and tools at their disposal.
  This survey will help the project team prioritize those requirements in order to build prototypes for search and discovery using the SHARE aggregator.

Please note that the de-identified and anonymized results of this survey will be made openly available on the project website after the survey closes.

Numishare News: ANS web projects, IIIF deployed on new server

ANS web projects, IIIF deployed on new server
In other big news today with the consolidation of Nomisma and ANS digital projects on numismatics.org onto the same dedicated server (which is much more powerful than the separate cloud servers each domain previously ran on), our IIIF image server (Loris) and presentation APIs are now running in production. IIIF functionality extends beyond simple zoom functionality and manifests for single objects in our own collection (e.g., http://numismatics.org/collection/1944.100.39026), but an entirely new array of features, some of which have been described in previous posts:

  • There are now 160,000 photographed objects in the ANS collection, the high res photos of which are available through IIIF. Of these, more than 55,000 are Greek and Roman coins linked to types defined in OCRE, CRRO, and PELLA. Like our other partners that publish IIIF, the zoomable images are available on the coin type landing page, but the ANS adds tremendous coverage in these domains. See dozens of our coins linked to Price 4.
  • Manifests for coin types are generated dynamically by a combination of NUDS typological metadata + SPARQL query results for associated physical specimens with IIIF service metadata. The manifest is linked at the top of the page, along with a link to view the manifest. These sorts of manifests are the jumping-off point for annotating symbols and monograms on coins.
  • The ANS Archives support IIIF through TEI (digitized coin hoard notebooks), EAD, and MODS resources (photographs). Photographs linked to ancient places defined in Pleiades can be ingested into Pelagios. More here: http://eaditor.blogspot.com/2017/10/eaditor-now-supports-ead-and-mods-to.html. The Newell notebooks are so far the only digital resources featuring annotations, so far.
  • Rainer Simon is reindexing the ANS coins linked to ancient places via Nomisma->Pleiades concordances into Peripleo. These extend beyond the 55,000 Greco-Roman coins linked to OCRE, CRRO, and PELLA to include all ancient coins linked to Nomisma IDs for mints. See https://twitter.com/aboutgeo/status/925292397986279425. Of the 140,000 coins in MANTIS linked to Pleiades places, about 83,000 have been photographed/provide IIIF service metadata to Pelagios.https://twitter.com/aboutgeo/status/925292397986279425

The Antiquities Coalition Policy Briefs

The Antiquities Coalition Policy Briefs
Policy Brief 1: Ending Impunity for Antiquities Traffickers through the Creation of a Cultural Heritage Crimes Prosecution Team (November 2016)
By Ricardo “Rick” St. Hilaire
In just the last decade, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has recovered and returned more than 7,500 illicit artifacts to thirty countries, as part of its fight against the global traffic in cultural heritage. Restituting this stolen property has done much to foster international diplomacy. However, by prioritizing forfeitures and repatriations over investigations and indictments, this “seize and send” policy has failed to hold criminals accountable in courts of law, or staunch what is now a worldwide illegal industry...
Brief 2: How Can We Fund the Fight Against Antiquities Looting and Trafficking? A "Pollution" Tax on the Antiquities Trade (December 2016)
Lawrence Rothfield
Almost every nation has laws against looting, smuggling, and trafficking in antiquities, supplemented by international bans and bilateral interdictions. Yet the playing field remains badly tilted against the site guards, customs officials, antiquities police, and prosecutors charged with enforcing these laws, in large part because enforcers lack the financial resources needed to do their job.
Policy Brief 3: How to Control the Internet Market in Antiquities? The Need for Regulation and Monitoring (July 2017)
By Neil Brodie
Illicit antiquities, some pilfered from war zones where jihadist groups operate, are increasingly finding their way online where they are being snapped up by unknowing buyers and further driving the rampant plunder of archaeological sites.
These internet sales are spurring a vicious cycle: increasing demand for antiquities, which drives the looting, producing a greater supply of artifacts, which further increases demand.
While global auction sales of art and antiquities declined in 2015—falling as much as 11 percent—online sales skyrocketed by 24 percent, reaching a staggering $3.27 billion dollars. According to Forbes, “This suggests that the art market may not be 1 cooling, exactly, but instead shifting to a new sales model, e-commerce.”
How can an online buyer guarantee that a potential purchase is not stolen property, a “blood antiquity,” or a modern forgery? The best protection is to demand evidence of how the object reached the market in the first place. However, as in more traditional sales, most antiquities on the internet lack any such documentation.

Jacques-Édouard Berger (1945-1993) — art historian, lecturer, organiser and accompanier of cultural trips to Europe, Egypt, India, Far East and United States (major sites and museums visited by J.E Berger) — had brought back over one hundred thousand pictures , for purposes of lectures Pour l'Art. Passionate collector of Art, after his death, the J.-E. Berger Foundation deposited his very important collections with the City of Lausanne (Switzerland) with a view to their installation in the Musée de design et d'arts appliqués contemporains (mudac).

(Partially) Open Access Journal: Chronozones: Bulletin des sciences de l'Antiquité de l'université de Lausanne

 [First posted in AWOL 20 May 2013, updated 29 October 2017]

Chronozones: Bulletin des sciences de l'Antiquité de l'université de Lausanne
Chronozones
Chronozones est né en 1994 de la volonté d’un groupe d’étudiants en archéologie et en sciences de l’Antiquité de l’Université de Lausanne qui désirait coucher ses idées ou ses recherches par écrit dans le but de les diffuser, les discuter ou les critiquer.

La réalisation de la revue s’articule autour de deux pôles; d’une part la rédaction d’articles pour les auteurs, d’autre part la participation à plusieurs étapes de la chaîne de publication d’une revue pour les membres de la rédaction, de la réception des textes à la mise en page finale. L’auteur bénéficie alors d’une expérience de publication, le membre de la rédaction d’un savoir-faire éditorial – charte typographique, maîtrise d’un logiciel de mise en page, etc.

La revue s’intéresse essentiellement à la culture gréco-latine, dans une démarche pluridisciplinaire (archéologie, histoire, épigraphie, numismatique, latin, grec) et parfois interdisciplinaire. Depuis quelques années, un intérêt pour l’étude de la culture celtique se manifeste également; elle est composée d’une partie Materia qui laisse la place à des articles de fond plus ou moins pointus, et Antemnae qui a pour vocation d’être un forum d’échange et de réunir tout document ayant trait, de près ou de loin, à l’Antiquité. Elle paraît une fois par an, dans une maquette qui a trouvé sa ligne dès le troisième volume. Cette dernière a été changée pour le volume 6. Plus sobre et plus lisible, elle a été conservée pour le numéro 7, 8 et 9, tandis que pour le volume anniversaire 10, tout comme pour les versions 2005 (11) et 2006 (12), elle a été remaniée et a reçu une couverture couleur.

Chaque volume est tiré à 450 exemplaires et est vendu essentiellement dans le cadre de l’Université, lors de manifestations ayant pour cadre le monde de l’Antiquité – conférences, visites grand public des chantiers de fouilles, etc. Chronozones est cependant disponible dans la plupart des librairies lausannoises et peut également être commandé en ligne.

Open Access Journal: Classics For All Newsletter

[First posted in AWOL 4 November 2014, updated 28 October 2017]

Classics For All Newsletter
http://gallery.mailchimp.com/9b06afb7e6de6ece6d4009883/images/CFA_logo_small.1.jpg
We are a group of individuals united by a passion for Classics. Many of us have studied Classics at state schools, and all of us know the subject has great educational value across many disciplines. Our supporters include academics, scholars and teachers, business people, politicians and broadcasters.
Classics – the study of Latin, Greek and Ancient Civilisations – is in growing demand in state schools but it has to compete for funding with other essential subjects in increasingly tight school budgets. We think making Classics available in every state school is a must so that all pupils – from whatever background – have the same opportunities.

Classics for All was created in 2010 by Friends of Classics and the Joint Association of Classical Teachers (JACT) to raise money to ensure Classics is available in every state school where there is demand.

Digital Marmor Parium

 [First posted in AWOL 20 December 2014, updated 26 October 2017]

Digital Marmor Parium
http://www.dh.uni-leipzig.de/wo/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/MarmorParium1.jpg
The Digital Marmor Parium is a project of the Humboldt Chair of Digital Humanities at the University of Leipzig. The aim of this work is to produce a new digital edition of the so called Marmor Parium (Parian Marble), which is a Hellenistic chronicle on a marble slab coming from the Greek island of Paros. The importance of the document is due to the fact that it preserves a Greek chronology (1581/80-299/98 BC) with a list of kings and archons accompanied by short references to historical events mainly based on the Athenian history. The project team is producing a new XML edition of the text according to the EpiDoc Guidelines, is encoding all the named entities mentioned in the inscription, and is producing a timeline visualization of the chronological information preserved on the stone.

Welcome to the website of the Network for the Study of Archaic and Classical Greek Song. The Network was founded in 2007 at the initiative of Ewen Bowie (University of Oxford) and André Lardinois (Radboud University Nijmegen) with the aim of promoting the exchange of information and ideas between scholars engaged in the study of archaic and classical lyric, elegiac and iambic poetry.
Today, it is overseen by Anastasia-Erasmia Peponi (Stanford University) and Lucia Athanassaki (University of Crete), who act as the Network's choragoi, and its principal activity is the organisation of annual conferences on themes identified as key to advancement of the field by an international team of core members or choreutai.
Additionally, this website hosts a Bibliography of scholarship on Greek song published by its members.
