Open Philology Project

Open Philology Project

Gregory Crane, who was an investigator in DVE,  has posted the research plan for his Open Philology Project at the University of Leipzig, where he is Humboldt Chair of Digital Humanities.

This is a very exciting project, which will be looking at many of the same issues as DVE.

The project will focus on

“converting as much Greek and Latin, available as scanned printed books, into an open, dynamic corpus, continuously augmented and improved by a combination of automated processes and human contributions of many kinds.”

and will address

“the challenge of creating comprehensive open resources, providing the education needed to understand and to contribute to those resources, and integrating open resources from many different sources into an integrated computational framework for analysis, annotation, and preservation.”
