NEH awarded Washington and Lee a major DH grant to support continued work on the “Ancient Graffiti Project” — a program led by Classics Professor Rebecca Benefiel and Computer Science Professor Sara Sprenkle. CSCI Major Jamie White ’17 played a large part in the development of this project. Click on the links below to learn more!
Computer Science professor Sara Sprenkle collaborated with other members of Washington and Lee’s Digital Humanities Working Group and the Provost to write the grant application. See the following links for more details!
Rebecca Benefiel, associate professor of classics at Washington and Lee University, and Sara Sprenkle, assistant professor of computer science at W&L, will present their prototype of a new web application involving the ancient graffiti of Pompeii at the Linked Ancient World Data Institute (LAWDI) later this month
Thirteen students in CSCI335: Software Engineering through Web Applications demonstrated their three team projects at the Spring Fest. In teams of four or five, the students gathered requirements for their project, created a static prototype, and developed a dynamic, user-friendly prototype–all in four weeks.
Each student worked on one of three projects:
The Collegium Project – a digital humanities project in collaboration with Professor Sarah Bond, a history professor at Marquette University and a former Mellon Fellow at W&L.
Corsola – a tool for visualizing course schedules and conflicts. W&L students may be able to use a version of Corsola as early as this fall.
