'On-Line Communities of Classicists' opens technology lecture series
In response to the growing presence of classical culture on the World Wide Web, the classical and medieval studies program at Bates presents a series of lectures and workshops given by leaders in the field to demonstrate how new technology can democratize this specialized area of scholarship.
Interested members of the community are invited to attend lectures and workshops free of charge, but should sign up in advance for workshops, which are limited to 30 participants each.
The first of the lectures will be given at 7 p.m. Feb. 4 in Room 204 of Carnegie Science Hall. Suzanne Bonefas of Associated Colleges of the South discusses Building On-Line Communities of Classicists and follows with a workshop on the same subject from 2 to 4 p.m. Feb. 5 in Room 208 of Hathorn Hall.
The workshop will focus on Web sites developed by Bonefas, including Diotima, a collection of texts and images for the study of women in the ancient world, and VRoma, a similar collection for teaching Roman culture and Latin.
