Anvil Academic has announced the acceptance of the first three proposals for the “Built Upon” series, and the news below is from the Anvil Academic blog:
We are pleased to announce the acceptance by our editorial board and editorial staff ofthree submissions to our inaugural Built Upon publishing initiative. Anvil regards all three as excellent demonstrations of our vision for post-monograph publishing in the digitally networked age. The three projects are:
- John C. Gruber-Miller, Professor of Classical Studies, Cornell College: “Imagining Ancient Corinth: An Introduction to Greek Literature and Culture”
- Anastasia Salter, Assistant Professor, Information Arts and Technologies: “Alice in Dataland: Reinventing Alice in the Digital World”
- D. Neel Smith, Associate Professor of Classics at College of the Holy Cross, and co-director of the Center for Hellenic Studies’ Information Technology Initiative, with Nikolas Churik, Classics undergraduate and Sheehan Scholar at The College of the Holy Cross: “Design and Layout of the Richest Manuscript in the Iliad”
We are working with the project authors and the participating digital archives on building the works described in the proposals, and expect to make further announcements on progress in June 2013.
It’s very exciting to see Anvil Academic move forward so quickly with acceptance and moving forward on projects. It’s also particularly exciting for me to see that one of the projects includes UF’s Baldwin Library of Historical Children’s Literature.
