Gazetteering Pausanias: Athens and Beyond

Thurs­day, Jan­u­ary 26, 2023

The Swedish In­sti­tute at Athens and the Dig­i­tal Perie­ge­sis Pro­ject (Up­p­sala Uni­ver­sity) wel­come you to a work­shop by Anna Foka, El­ton Barker, Brady Kies­ling, Kyr­i­aki Kon­stan­ti­nidou and Linda Ta­latas, en­ti­tled

“Gazetteer­ing Pau­sa­nias: Athens and Be­yond”.

The work­shop takes place as a hy­brid event on Thurs­day, Jan­u­ary 26, 2023, 17.00–19.00 (Athens), phys­i­cally at the Swedish In­sti­tute at Athens and dig­i­tally on Zoom.


The ongoing Digital Periegesis (Pausanias) project, based in Uppsala with the support
of the Swedish Research Council and Swedish Institute in Athens, is finalizing its
annotation of Pausanias’ places, people, events, objects, and quotations using
Recogito. Our planned next step is to generate an open gazetteer of Pausanias’ places
using Wikidata, linking to existing gazetteers (e.g. Pleiades, ToposText,
DAI/Arachne) and Judith Binder’s Magnum Opus (at Since this project’s
inception, and a preliminary meeting of interested parties in 2018, substantial
progress has been made by the Athens scholarly community on digital resources
relevant to such a gazetteer. We hope you will join us to take stock and share visions
for the future of mapping Greek antiquity.
