Digitale Altertumswissenschaften:: Thesen und Debatten zu Methoden und Anwendungen
This volume introduces scholars who are not particularly acquainted with recently ongoing developments in Digital Classics to selected crucial problems and debates in the field. The selection enables the readers not only to get an all-around view of the discussed issue but also to get in contact with common main lines of discourses in Digital Classics and Digital Humanities in general. This volume offers discussions on fundamental questions and tendencies (new working methods, digital publishing, teaching and research with the usage of databases and information systems), and a specialized discussion on digital scholarly editions, which serves as an example illustrating general issues on producing and working with digitized and digital sources and material in Classics. Thus, the purpose of this volume is to be a collection of some crucial results that have been achieved, clear tendencies that dominate, envisioned possibilities, and even deadlocks, and become thus a provisory orientation point in the fast changing landscape of institutions, disciplines and methods in (Digital) Classics today.
"Die wachsende Erstellungs- und Benutzerfreundlichkeit von digitalen Tools gibt Philolog:innen und Althistoriker:innen stets neue Möglichkeiten an die Hand, die antiken Sprachen, die antike Literatur und antike historische Kontexte zu erschließen und zu vermitteln."
Isabella Walser-Bürgler, in H-Soz-Kult
"Overall, the volume is a valuable discussion of the current state of digital editions and highlights many important issues we as a discipline must address in the future, both with regard to the epistemic and methodological underpinnings of our research and to the requirements that are needed to make digital tools truly useful for us."
Thomas Leibundgut, in Bryn Mawr Classical Review
