Session #62
Making Meaning from Data (Joint SCS/AIA Panel)
Organized by the Digital Classics Association

Neil Coffee, University at Buffalo, State University of New York, Organizer
“Big data” is becoming increasingly significant in classics. Archaeologists
can now generate vast amounts of digital information. Online repositories
for the study of geography, prosopography, poetry, and other areas continue
to appear, along with new protocols and tools for exploring them. This panel
addresses the changing research environment with presentations that show how
we can make meaning from our data, and so develop new and integrated
perspectives on the classical world.
