Digital Classics in the Liberal Arts Classroom:  Tom Landvatter and Beth Platte
At small liberal arts colleges, classics departments are limited in the number of classes they can offer. As a result, traditional methods for scaffolding scholarly development over multiple terms are often not possible. In this talk, we’ll provide an introduction to digital humanities in classical studies and how digital humanities tools and approaches have been used in undergraduate education in the classics. In particular, we’ll discuss how classical archaeology courses at Reed incorporate digital humanities approaches to student research to foster core competencies in disciplinary thinking and research methodologies. The outcome of this approach is that students both appreciate the complexities of classical archaeology while also making a lasting contribution, through their research, to a major digital humanities project.
