We are inviting both students and established researchers involved in the application of the digital humanities to the study of the ancient world to come and introduce their work. The focus of this seminar series is the interdisciplinary and collaborative work that results at the interface of expertise in Classics or Archaeology and Computer Science.
The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
Audio recordings and slideshows will be uploaded after each event.
