We should like to announce the creation of a new
project and community, hosted by the Centre for
Computing in the Humanities (KCL), applying
humanities computing to the study of the ancient
world. The Digital Classicist has a pilot web
site at http://www.digitalclassicist.org, which,
as well as serving as a placeholder for further
content, sets out our aims and objectives in a
preliminary manner. As you will see, key sections
of the website and summaries of articles will,
where possible, be translated into the major
languages of European scholarship: e.g. English,
French, German, Italian, Spanish etc. The project
also comprises a discussion list, a Wiki, and a Blog.

The project, which is committed to being ongoing
and available in the long term, fills a gap in
the current academic environment: there are
countless important digital research projects in
the classics, including many that offer advice
and share tools; there are sites that discuss,
host, or list such resources (the Stoa, the
Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington, Centre
for the Study of Ancient Documents in Oxford,
EAGLE in Rome, to name but a few); but there is
no single platform for scholars and interested
experts in the international and polyglot
community to discuss problems, share experiences,
post news and advice, and go to for help on all
matters digital and classical. We shall of course
work closely with other organisations and
projects that are active in these areas (in
particular the Stoa, and other subject
communities such as the Digital Medievalist,
including specialists in archaeological,
historical, and geographical technologies), to
avoid excessive overlap and maximise co-operation and collaboration.

At this point we especially need members of the
international scholarly community to contribute
to the project. If you feel you could get
involved in an editorial capacity, or you could
recommend somebody else to do so, please do get
in touch. There is no obligation that editors
give up many hours of their time, of
course--editorial roles are discussed in a
posting at http://tinyurl.com/cpdsu . In addition
we should be very grateful if you could suggest
other people--especially those in non-Anglophone
Europe--who might be interested in participating in this project in any way.

And in any case, please spread the word, join the
mailing list and get involved in the discussions
as we establish this new project and community.

Best regards,

The Editors
