We are pleased to announce that Marie-Claire Beaulieu, Assistant Professor of Classics, has been named Associate Editor of the Perseus Digital Library.
Hired in 2010, Professor Beaulieu has research interests in Greek religion and myth, epigraphy, and medieval Latin. Upon her arrival at Tufts, Professor Beaulieu immediately used digital technology to give undergraduates and MA students opportunities to make contributions and to conduct research, thus advancing intellectual culture where learning and research are intermeshed and reinforce each other. The thirteen undergraduate and graduate students—plus one community auditor—enrolled in her “Medieval Latin” class in Winter 2011 deciphered, translated, and annotated rare Latin manuscripts and early printed book leaves from “The Tisch Library Miscellany.” Their work was published online on the Tisch Library Miscellany page and has made a significant contribution to scholarship in the field by providing a valuable resource for professors, librarians, and scholars at Tufts and around the world, who can now access translations and annotations for their teaching and research.
Her work with the Tisch Library led her to receive both an internal Tufts award and an NEH Startup Grant to generalize the infrastructure needed to support—and manage over time—the increasingly varied and complex contributions of students at Tufts and elsewhere. These contributions include editorial work, translations, commentaries, and annotations. In addition, Prof. Beaulieu is working on ways to enhance the teaching of Greek mythology and religion with the use of digital technology.
Perseus staff and collaborators enthusiastically welcome her aboard!
