Digital Hammurabi is a public outreach/digital humanities project that aims to provide reliable, accurate information about the Ancient Near East and surrounding areas in an entertaining and engaging fashion. Resources about the Ancient Near East are few and far between, and often filled with misinformation. Digital Hammurabi tries to fill that need through interviews with researchers, and educational videos, as well as self-published books aimed at a non-specialist audience.
Panelists: Megan Lewis and Joshua Bowen.
Peopling the Past is a Digital Humanities initiative that hosts free, open-access resources for teaching and learning about real people in the ancient world and the people who study them.
Panelist: Christine Johnston. Peopling the Past Team: Carolyn M. Laferriere, Chelsea A.M. Gardner, Christine Johnston, Megan Daniels, Melissa Funke and Sabrina C. Higgins.
Everyday Orientalism is a platform for discussing and challenging the ways in which western history and power have shaped people’s views of the Middle East and other non-western cultures.
Panelists: Katherine Blouin and Rachel Mairns. Everyday Orientalism team: Katherine Blouin, Usama Ali Gad, and Rachel Mairns
