With the 2013-2014 academic year, Classicizing Philadelphia begins an exciting new phase. A Presidential Initiative Grant from the Classical Association of the Atlantic States will allow us to develop systems for data management and use and post preliminary content. Classicizing Philadelphia welcomes Sara Sieteski as Project Associate for Design and Implementation. Sara is a Senior IT Specialist at the University of Pennsylvania and holds masters degrees in digital humanities from Penn and in Classics from Bryn Mawr and the University of Colorado.
This blog will continue to report on planning for Classicizing Philadelphia as we move toward our goals:
• To be a focal point for research on classical receptions in Philadelphia
• To be a gateway to documents of classical reception in Philadelphia collections
• To inform the citizens of Philadelphia about and engage them in our city’s long conversation with Greece and Rome
