Now that conference travel has ground almost to a total standstill,
ANEE’s Team 1 (“Digital Humanities Approaches”) is pleased to invite
you to a Zoom event: “Recent Developments in Digital Assyriology”.
During the workshop, Digital Assyriology projects will present their
work, both WIP and finished. The focus of the workshop is particularly
on text based studies. General themes for presentations include:
producing electronic text data, annotating texts, visualizing textual
information, and using the text data. Prof. Niek Veldhuis from
Berkeley will keynote the event with the presentation titled “Changing
the Business of Assyriology: Data and Data Analysis.” Full program
will be announced in the beginning of August in ANEE web pages

The event is open to registered audience members and there will be
time for audience questions. Timetable allows scholars to participate
from US and Canada as well. Anyone interested in the event should fill
