Rediscovery of Homer thwarted by Iceland's Vesuvias

This week I had planned to travel to Germany to present the Homer Multitext at a conference organized by Teuchos – Zentrum für Handschriften- und Textforschung. Unfortunately, Iceland's volcano has prevented me and no doubt several others from attending. The text of the presentation, entitled "Rediscovering Homer: Manuscript Digitization and the Homer Multitext Project," and a PDF of the accompanying slides (66MB) can be found here and here. Thank you to Daniel Deckers and his colleagues for inviting me to the conference. I am sure it will be very productive and illuminating for those who are able to attend, and I very much regret that I will not be among them.
