Greek epigraphic squeezes: Developing a digital environment

Department of Classical Near Eastern and Religious Studies, Faculty of Arts


Principal Investigator:
Dr. Gwynaeth McIntyre

This student-driven project will collaborate with the UBC Library to digitize approximately 700 epigraphic squeezes (paper impressions of ancient Greek stone inscriptions), and develop the descriptive content necessary to deliver a comprehensive online collection. Once digitized, the materials will be introduced to approximately 135 upper-graduate and graduate students through classroom assignments in an online environment, and engage them in translation exercises that will introduce them to the field of digital humanities.
