Ancient Worlds in Digital Culture at #AARSBL16

Ancient Worlds in Digital Culture at #AARSBL16 November 15, 2016

About a month ago, the blog Evangelical Textual Criticism drew attention to the first volume in a new series, Digital Biblical Studies. For those interested in the volume, which really is an incredibly fascinating survey of the Digital Humanities in relation to Biblical studies, there will be a panel discussion at SBL, in which I am one of the panelists:


Ancient Worlds in Digital CultureDigital Humanities in Biblical, Early Jewish, and Christian Studies
4:00 PM to 5:30 PM
Room: Bowie A (2nd Level) – Grand Hyatt (GH)

Theme: Ancient Worlds in Digital Culture: discussion of DBS 1 (Brill, new collection)
The panel will discuss the first volume of the new Brill series Digital Biblical Studies: Ancient Worlds in Digital Culture, ed. by Claire Clivaz, Paul Dilley and David Hamidovic. The volume presents a selection of research projects in Digital Humanities applied to the “Biblical Studies” in the widest sense and context. Taken as a whole, the volume restitutes the merging Digital Culture at the beginning of the 21st century.
