Research

The Publications and Research Division currently manages four major projects:

The Division also collaborates with other major projects in classics that are not managed by the SCS:

  • the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae, the comprehensive database of ancient and Byzantine Greek
  • the Ancient World Mapping Center (AWMC), which promotes cartography, historical geography and geographic information science as essential disciplines within the field of ancient studies.  The AWMC is carrying on the work begun with the publication of the Barrington Atlas of the Ancient World which was sponsored by the SCS.
  • the Database of Classical Scholars (DCS), a multi-faceted database that aims to provide biographical and bibliographical information on classical scholars from the period associated with classical scholarship as currently understood, from the end of the eighteenth century and the publication of F.A. Wolf’s Prolegomena zu Homer (1795) to the current day.  Visit the DCS web site to see video interviews with a number of distinguished classicists, including several former officers of the SCS.

The Division’s Committee on Research monitors the resources available to scholars conducting research in classics and encourages the development of new tools when it identifies needs and opportunities.
