Our project has just been awarded funding from UBC’s Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund – Flexible Learning. The funding will enable us to photograph the McGregor squeeze collection and create an online database accessible to scholars around the world. A huge thanks to Maude Côté-Landry, Larissa Ringham (Digital Projects Librarian, UBC Library), and Gwynaeth McIntyre who put the proposal together.
Our test website is up and running, with 15 inscriptions available for study.
With funding for the next 2 years from TLEF, we will be able to digitize the collection and create a resource that we hope will be used to instruct Classics students around the world about the study of epigraphy. Part of our work will be providing transliterations and translations of the squeezes:
This is very exciting news and a great way to end the first year of our project!
