Philology in the Age of Corpus and Computational Linguistics

I'd like to begin this blog by thanking Greg Crane and Anke Lüdeling for the workshop they organized at Tufts this past week ( This workshop brought together classicists, linguists, and computer scientists. It gave us the opportunity to learn from one another and discuss best practices and new possibilities for Digital Humanities projects. We are grateful for the opportunity to present the Homer Multitext to such a distinguished and innovative group of scholars. Stay tuned to this blog for updates about new and forthcoming developments for the HMT, as we acquire more images, add various texts and transcriptions to the site, and develop new tools for interacting with them.
