Digital Italy Seminar

September 7, 2021

Two seminars on the theme of ‘Digital Italy’ will be held online on Tuesday 7th September and Tuesday 14th September (14.00-16.30 UK time). These seminars are being held as part of the events funded by the project ‘Connectivity and Competition: Multilingualism in Ancient Italy 800-200 BC’ (AH/R010943/1).

These two seminars seek to bring together people who are working on, or who have recently worked on, projects with a digital component related to Republican and pre-Roman Italy and Sicily. Our aim is to share knowledge between projects and publicise the digital resources that have been created for the study of Italy.

If you would like to be added to the attendance list, please email [email protected]uk to be added to the list. A Zoom link will be circulated before the sessions.
