Digital Scholarship Conversations
A Virtual Open House to Krateros.
Speaker: Dr. Aaron Hershkowitz, Manager Krateros Project, Institute for Advanced Study
The Institute for Advanced Study holds one of the largest collections of epigraphic squeezes (paper negatives of inscribed stones) in the world. On April 9th, join Dr. Aaron Hershkowitz, manager of the Krateros Project, for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Meritt Library, home to both the squeeze collection and the digitization effort. Last year the National Endowment for the Humanities awarded the project a prestigious grant to continue to digitize that collection. Attendees will not only get to see the various materials housed in the Meritt Library, but will also get a glimpse into the process of scanning those squeezes. The tour will conclude with a question and answer period led by Dr. Hershkowitz.
