Call for Proposals

Ancient MakerSpaces showcases digital approaches to the study of the ancient world. Since 2017 (and with a brief hiatus in 2020), Ancient MakerSpaces has served as a venue at the AIA-SCS Annual Meeting for scholars, librarians, and students to share their ongoing digital scholarship and pedagogical work, as well as a space for hands-on, peer-based learning about digital resources and computational methods.

We invite presentation proposals for digital projects at all stages, from prospective to published. AMS 2021 will combine lightning talks, project demos, and (potentially) hands-on workshops that present digital tools, platforms, repositories, or techniques for engaging with ancient texts and material culture.

Submissions from all disciplines within ancient studies are welcome, and we particularly welcome proposals that engage with the following approaches:

  • AR/VR environments
  • digital mapping
  • text encoding, annotating, or editing
  • network analysis
  • digitization and modeling (including epigraphic or numismatic materials)
  • linked open data or data preservation

Submit your proposals here! (CLOSED)

Submission deadline (extended): March 6, 2020

Questions or comments? Please contact the AMS 2021 organizers: Aaron Hershkowitz, Rachel Starry, and Natalie Susmann.
