        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.
