This temporary site is meant to complement the Digital Latin Library's seminar "Latin Textual Criticism in the Digital Age," to be held on the campus of the University of Oklahoma on June 25–26, 2015.
In the time leading up to the seminar, participants will post drafts of their papers for comment by other participants in the seminar. For the time being, only registered participants will be able to see and comment on the papers, but the papers will eventually be published on an open basis as part of the DLL's permanent collection.
The DLL is an interdisciplinary digital humanities research project based at the University of Oklahoma, with funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The project’s mission is to open new vistas onto the study of Latin texts by combining traditional philology with data visualization techniques and standards-based library and information technology.
Through its affiliation with the Society for Classical Studies, the Medieval Academy of America, and the Renaissance Society of America, the DLL Project will also provide a forum for publishing peer-reviewed, born-digital critical editions and commentaries. The DLL Seminar on Latin textual criticism in the digital age is part of the effort to gather information about the current practices of scholars working on digital editions of Latin texts and to encourage discussion about the scholarly value of textual criticism in general.
