The Digital Classicist is a decentralised and international community of scholars and students interested in the application of innovative digital methods and technologies to research on the ancient world. The Digital Classicist is not core funded, and nor is it owned by any institution. The main purpose of this site is to offer a web-based hub for discussion, collaboration and communication.
The Stoa Consortium for Electronic Publication in the Humanities has been edited since its creation in 1997 by Ross Scaife, Professor of Classics at the University of Kentucky. The Stoa exists to serve several purposes: dissemination of news and announcements, mainly via the gateway blog; discussion of best practices via discussion groups and white papers; and publication of experimental on-line projects, many of them subject to scholarly peer review.
"This working group of the Whitney Humanities Center focuses on digital humanities, a still emerging practice involving the use of information technology-based resources and methods in the scholarly activities of the humanist. Digital humanities encompass an array of convergent practices that explore a world in which scholarship is not exclusively produced in print but is created and distributed through new digital technologies. This group will consider the expanding practices, vocabulary, and research methods germane to digital humanities across disciplines."
arts-humanities.net aims to support and advance the use and understanding of digital tools and methods for research and teaching in the arts and humanities by providing:
* Information on projects creating and using digital content, tools and methods to answer research questions
* Information on tools and methods for creating and using digital resources
* A listing of expert centres and individual researchers
* A library documenting lessons learned through case studies, briefing papers, and a bibliography
"This wiki collects information about tools and resources that can help scholars (particularly in the humanities and social sciences) conduct research more efficiently or creatively. Whether you need software to help you manage citations, author a multimedia work, or analyze texts, Digital Research Tools will help you find what you're looking for. We provide a directory of tools organized by research activity, as well as reviews of select tools in which we not only describe the tool's features, but also explore how it might be employed most effectively by researchers."
"founded in 1973 with the purpose of supporting the application of computing in the study of language and literature. As the range of available and relevant computing techniques in the humanities has increased, the interests of the Association's members have necessarily broadened, to encompass not only text analysis and language corpora, but also history, art history, music, manuscript studies, image processing, electronic editions and much else besides. The ALLC's membership is international, is drawn from across the humanities disciplines, and includes students and established scholars alike. "
The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) promotes and supports digital research and teaching across all arts and humanities disciplines, acting as a community-based advisory force, and supporting excellence in research, publication, collaboration and training.
