Workshop in Boston

I just come back from a very interesting workshop organised at Tufts University. First the link to the programme:

DFG-Perseus Workshop on Historical Texts

It was organised by the well-known Perseus Project and the Chair of Corpus Linguistics and Morphology at the Humboldt University in Berlin.

Even if there were many extremely interesting and inspiring presentations, I would like to mention here three, as they are particularly close to my work on Demetrios of Scepsis. The first, the Homer Multitext Project, has already been mentioned in this blog previously (Other Usage of Pictures). Next comes the work done on fragments by Monica Berti (Fragmentary Texts). Especially I would like to draw attention to her new project about the fragments within the text of Athenaeus (Representing Citations in the Deipnosophists of Athenaeus). Thirdly there was the presentation by Elton Barker, who is working on the text of Herodotus and the localisation of the place names mentioned by the Greek historian (HESTIA).
