Subject: Re: [Humanist] 32.604: the fate of the Chicago Homer? Dear Martin and Willard, regarding the Chicago Homer -- at the moment, at the University of Zagreb, Croatia, one of our students is preparing her diploma thesis (we are in the German / Italian tradition) on Homeric epithets as translated into Renaissance and Early Modern Latin. Without the Chicago Homer database her work would be more difficult and less precise. And from database searching we move naturally into typologies and categorizations. There are two things I would like to see growing around the Chicago Homer: first, a connection towards the Homer Multitext (https://www.homermultitext.org/index.html); second, a community of (student) scholars who are just exploring their trade, perhaps something along the line of Qeios (https://www.qeios.com/). The number of people who use the internet to engage with the original Greek is perhaps small in each individual country, but we should try to connect them somehow, possibly even beyond the usual arena of collecting points / citations. Best, Neven Neven Jovanovic, Zagreb _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: email@example.com List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
