Post by Jonathan Robie » ... fruit.html
On Saturday, November 19th 2016, from 4:00 PM to 6:30 PM, GERT will host a session with the theme “Low Hanging Fruit in Digital Biblical Studies”, focusing on existing datasets and technologies that are freely licensed and can be leveraged to advance biblical studies, at the SBL Annual meeting in room 305 of the Convention Center. Randall Tan of Global Bible Initiative will preside.

The session has five presentations:
  • Francis G.H. Pang, McMaster Divinity College and Christopher D. Land, McMaster Divinity College The Past, Present, and Future of the Annotated Greek Corpus (30 min)
  • Jonathan Robie, B-Greek: The Biblical Greek Forum Use Cases for Greek Treebanks (30 min)
  • Paul O’Rear, SIL International Stephen Levinsohn’s “Discourse Features of New Testament Greek”: The Data (30 min)
  • J. K. Tauber, MorphGNT An Online Adaptive Reading Environment for the Greek New Testament (30 min)
    T[roy Griffitts, Institut für Neutestamentliche Textforschung An Online Collaborative Research Environment for Project Synergy (30 min)

After this session, a group of people who create open digital datasets or open source software for digital biblical studies will go out to dinner together. The main purpose of this dinner is to discuss ways we can work together over the coming year to continue providing useful datasets and software. Please contact Jonathan or Randall if you wish to attend. RSVP strongly requested, since the restaurant has limited seating.
