The poems of Catullus survived the Middle Ages in an exceptionally bad
shape. While much more remains to be done to reconstruct this text, even
what has already been achieved so far remains to be digested. In late 2009
we set out to remedy this situation by putting together a repertory of
conjectures on Catullus and publishing it online as a digital critical
edition of the poems of Catullus. However, there existed no online
repertories of conjectures. Creating one meant building up a new genre from
scratch. After a year of working together, we set up *Catullus Online* (
www.catullusonline.org<https://owa.nexus.ox.ac.uk/owa/redir.aspx?C=7RLBbXSZFkmWYHIrijlMm3uK-ThvOdEIBK6EWZ7mruZC_uAcWUlHyni0sGzkd02Y36j-BKGfTkE.&URL=http%3a%2f%2fwww.catullusonline.org%2f>),
which was inaugurated in January 2013. In this paper we discuss the
creation of this website as a pioneering case study for editing repertories
of conjectures and critical editions online.

All welcome!

Helen, Henry & Anastasia.

Digital Humanities Congress 2014
Call for Papers

The University of Sheffield's Humanities Research Institute with the support
of Centernet is delighted to announce its Call for Papers for a three-day
conference to be held in Sheffield during 4th - 6th September 2014.

The Digital Humanities Congress is a conference held in Sheffield every two
years. Its purpose is to promote the sharing of knowledge, ideas and
techniques within the digital humanities.

Digital humanities is understood by Sheffield to mean the use of technology
within arts, heritage and humanities research as both a method of inquiry
and a means of dissemination. As such, proposals related to all disciplines
within the arts, humanities and heritage domains are welcome.

The conference will take place at the University's residential conference
facility, The Edge.


Keynote Speakers

• Professor Laura Mandell (Director, Initiative for Digital Humanities,
Media and Culture, Texas A & M University)
