We are pleased to announce two seminars on the theme of ‘Digital Italy’, to be held online on Tuesday 7th September and Tuesday 14th September (afternoon only, UK time; exact times TBC). These seminars are being held as part of the events funded by the project ‘Connectivity and Competition: Multilingualism in Ancient Italy 800-200 BC’ (AH/R010943/1).
These two seminars seek to bring together people who are working on, or who have recently worked on, projects with a digital component related to Republican and pre-Roman Italy and Sicily. Our aim is to share knowledge between projects and publicise the digital resources that have been created for the study of Italy.
The format will focus on fostering conversation between participants, with short 10-minute papers followed by questions and discussion. Archaeological, historical, linguistic and epigraphic papers are welcome. Confirmed speakers include Dr Luca Rigobianco (Languages and Cultures of Ancient Italy: Historical Linguistics and Digital Models), Dr Saskia Roselaar, Dr Annie Burman, Dr Valentina Mignosa (Crossreads) and Dr Dan Diffendale.
If you wish to propose a paper for the seminar, please email Dr Katherine McDonald (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your title and an abstract of 250 words by the 19th July.
If you wish to register to attend without presenting a paper, please email Dr Livia Tagliapietra (email@example.com) with the subject line ‘Digital Italy Seminar’ to be added to our list.
