Biblical Texts in Diaspora and Digital Humanities  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

University of Michigan Professor of Classical Studies Arthur Verhoogt and Michigan State University Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies Robert Anderson will speak about the U.M.'s digital papyri collection and M.S.U.'s digital Samaritan Manuscripts. Joining Dr. Anderson will be William Hart-Davidson, Associate Professor of M.S.U.'s Writing, Rhetoric, and American Culture and Jim Ridolfo, Assistant Professor of writing, rhetoric, and digital studies at University of Kentucky. The U.M. Papyrology collection and MSU Libraries' Chamberlain Warren Samaritan Collection are both the largest of their kind in the United States, and both contain materials that are strongly connected to the Old and New Testament. This talk will feature and demonstrate how these scholars have created and implemented digital applications that make possible new ways of understanding and communicating with biblical texts that come from the world over.
