Goals and Objectives
- to improve textual criticism on ancient Greek fragmentary texts (research skills and data acquisition skills: research data management + text analytics)
- to improve competence on text annotation (research skills and data acquisition skills: analytical thinking + text annotation);
- to reach a reliable corpus for a digital scholarly edition of an ancient Greek poet (research skills and data handling: research methods + data repositories + data formats and standards).
- Beatrice Nava (University of Bologna): PhD Student, co-instructor of the course and collaborator in the DEA (Digital Edition of Archilochus) project.
- Students of the Courses of Greek Philology (MA, 6 cfu) and History of the Greek Language (BA, 6cfu) of the University of Parma: they attended the laboratory and encoded texts under the supervision of the tutors.

Experience with Using CLARIN Resources in Teaching
“I think that the Seminar/Workshop on the Elegies of Archilochus of Paro was useful and profitable from a double perspective. First, the project, especially laboratories, gave me the possibility to exploit and consolidate my knowledge on text coding (XML/TEI). Coding ancient texts is really very different from what I previously know. Testing first-hand some specific aspects I could understand not only the theory but also the practice; only when faced with real textual problems you are forced to search for possible solutions. Then, I think that the project allowed me a deeper study of Archilochus’ texts, improving the approach to critical apparatus and notes. Finally, the plan of the meetings and the support of the tutors, Prof. Anika Nicolosi and Dr. Beatrice Nava, let the easy involvement of all students.” (Filippo)
