The Digital Classicist is a hub for scholars and students interested in the application of humanities computing to research in the ancient and Byzantine worlds. This wiki collects guidelines and suggestions of major technical issues, and catalogues digital projects and tools of relevance to classicists. The wiki also lists events, bibliographies, publications (print and electronic), and other developments in the field. A discussion group serves as grist for a list of Frequently Asked Questions. As members of the community provide answers and other suggestions, some of these may graduate into independent wiki articles providing work-in-progress guidelines and reports.
The scope of the wiki follows the interests and expertise of collaborators, in general, and of the editors, in particular. As a general principle, key sections of the website or summaries of discussions will, where possible, be translated into the major languages of European scholarship: e.g. English, French, German, and Italian.
We seek to encourage the growth of a community of practice, which is open to everyone interested in the topic, regardless of skill or experience in technical matters, and language of contribution. To become a editor of the wiki, please contact one of the administrators (Gabriel Bodard or Simon Mahony). (The "create account" option has been disabled due to spam bots.)

The Digital Classicist is hosted by the Centre for Computing in the Humanities at King's College London, and the Stoa Consortium, University of Kentucky.
