Ancient Texts | New Media | Future Ethics: Case Studies in Digital Text Analysis


Point of Contact: Twyla Gibson at
The international collaborative project involves conceptualizing new theoretical constructs and methodologies in the study of media, communication, and information. The interdisciplinary research at the intersection of ancient studies, digital humanities, and contemporary ethics involves developing an application programming interface (API) that will make it possible to pursue “big data” textual research across texts and traditions. The aim is to show the potential for innovative methodologies in digital textuality, intertextuality, and classification to uncover new information concerning foundational source texts of world cultures [Students can pursue programming, interaction design, studies in comparative textual research, philosophy, classics, religious studies, etc.]
