The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has approved Dr. Amir Zeldes’ (Humboldt University) proposal for a young researcher group on Digital Humanities at HU Berlin, starting early next year. The project is called KOMeT (Korpuslinguistische Methoden für eHumanities mit TEI), and aims to apply corpus linguistics methods to ancient texts encoded in […]
September 23, 2013: Coptic SCRIPTORIUM has a new release! We have released some new material on the Coptic SCRIPTORIUM site, including: ⁃ new Coptic sayings from the Apophthegmata Patrum in the AP corpus ⁃ more linguistic annotations in the TEI XML download files ⁃ more finely grained bibliographic annotations in the TEI XML download files […]
I’ve added a link to a video describing the Coptic Scriptorium project.
On May 14, 2013, a number of scholars working on digital humanities projects in Coptic gathered to discuss our work, standards across the field, and possible collaborations. The University of the Pacific and the Institute for German Language and Linguistics jointly hosted the event. Overall the meeting was very fruitful, with many attendees expressing a […]
I’m blogging about Day of Digital Humanities over at the DayofDH site. DigiWriMo is long over, but Day of DH is in the same spirit, so I’m tacking this on to my DigiWriMo feed. Lots of stuff about scholarship and teaching going on over there.

Between my SBL presentation, website, grantwriting, Twitter, Facebook, and other digital writing, I’m just shy. I’m sure if I added in all my email in November, I’d hit 50k, which […]

The first week of November saw one internal funding proposal at Pacific for seed money (fingers crossed)! As the Director of the Humanities Center, I’m also trying to get together funding to attend the DHSI in […]
Every MWF I update my course websites. For Greek, I post the assignments, since each year, our schedule changes with the class. Each class has its own pace.

This is a belated post about my first week of Digital Writing Month. (www.digitalwritingmonth.com) I signed up, because I realized lately that between various digital projects (including websites) and grant applications for digital projects, I was doing a lot of digital writing. I thought I’d see if I’d actually get to 50,000 words. There’s a […]
