e-Rome. International Workshop about Digital Humanities & Rome

NIAS Wassenaar 4/5 March 2015

This workshop will bring together people from Digital Humanities Projects related to Rome, both with regard to the literary and physical heritage of Rome, dealing with art and topography as much as language and literature. The goal of the workshop is twofold: the first would be to offer an overview of state-of-the art research in this particular field and learn from each other about methodological and technical issues; the second to explore possibilities for collaboration and data-integration.

There is still some room for people to attend the workshop, but it is limited, so if you are interested please contact me a.s.a.p. at susanna.de.beer@nias.knaw.nl
