TRUSTEES OF TUFTS COLLEGE INC (Somerville, MA 02144-2401)
Gregory R. Crane (Project Director: November 2012 to April 2016)
CNR and Perseus Collaboration

The Perseus Project, led by Professor Gregory Crane of Tufts University, has been a worldwide leader in providing online access to Classical Greek sources. Perseus is currently collaborating with the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) to develop applications and digital infrastructure for working with historical languages, especially Classical Greek, Latin, Arabic, and early Italian. An important aspect of the collaboration between Perseus and CNR is to develop projects that integrate translations from Classical Greek into Classical Arabic, from the great translation movement that took place in Baghdad from 800 to 1000 CE. The proposed work on digital infrastructure will enhance learning and research and allow students to make more substantive contributions than was possible in a print culture. The current need is to further the collaboration by bringing four American scholars to Tufts University to meet with a visiting scholar from CNR and to have a software developer available to assist the process. The ultimate goal of this work is to lay the foundation for an interdisciplinary humanities curriculum incorporating Classical Greek, Latin, and Arabic in research and teaching through digital means.
