    ISAW Hosts “Future Philologies: Digital Directions in Ancient World Text” Conference

    The ISAW Library hosted Future Philologies: Digital Directions in Ancient World Text, a conference organized by Patrick J. Burns, David Ratzan, and Sebastian Heath on the intersection of research on historical languages and computer science on April 20. Building on the series of Linked Ancient World Data Initiative New York (LAWDNY) workshops hosted by the Library and Digital Programs, Future Philologies brought together scholars working on a diverse range of languages—Latin, Greek, Coptic, Persian, Arabic, Classical Chinese, Sumerian were all represented on the program—to discuss the effect that digitization and the ability to analyze massive amounts of text is having and will continue to have on philological research and teaching. The event was co-sponsored by the NYU Center for the Humanities, the NYU Division of Libraries, NYU’s Center for Ancient Study, and the NYU Department of Classics.
