Ancient
History Sourcebook: Greece and Hellenism


http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/ancient/

This site is
so important I don’t want to detain you with mere praise of it. Go to it
and be grateful to Fordham University for a Kalpa or so
.
Electronic
Sources for Classicists
http://www.tlg.uci.edu/~tlg/index/resources.html
This is a major, major one-stop shopping spree paradisio
for the classicist and non-classicist-moonlighter alike. Wonderfully organized
and elegantly showcased to launch the visitor into the virtual Aegean more
fortuitously than the Argives themselves into the putatively real one.
Poemerium
This is the site of the Classics journal Poermerium.
Extremely cosmopolitan in scope (the articles are in German, English, French,
and Italian), it is offered free on the Internet (at least for now). Visitors
can browse the table of contents for the volumes archived, and either read
or download an article, or with the click of a mouse the visitor can download
the entire issue as a zipped file – in one’s choice of Mac or PC formats.
In addition, the journal is the hub of a very intricate and well-developed
clearance house for digital resources for any type of research need in
the Classics. These resources are beautifully laid out at lucidly categorized
on a central square grip. Thre are other features as well – recommended
books (linked to Amazon.com, classics links hotlists, and news items from
the field. A beautiful site and a real discovery. Use this while you can.
All the search services are free but the site warns that they aren’t always
going to be that way.
The Cambridge
Classics External Gateway to Humanities Resources
http://www.classics.cam.ac.uk/Faculty/links.html
A terrific service from Cambridge University, the
site organizes and contextualizes an enormous array of Internet resources
for the interdisciplinary (or monodisciplinary) study of Western European
Antiquity. Particularly useful for research in philosophy, the history
of medicine and technology, theatre, art history, and linguistics.
Voice of the
Shuttle
http://humanitas.ucsb.edu/shuttle/classics.html
Professor Alan Liu’s megametamiracle of a humanities
resources directory cannot be praised highly enough. The „classics“ section
is only one aspect of a truly amazing and unbelievably useful, organic
resource constellation.
Diotima:
Materials for the Study of Women and Gender in the Ancient World
http://www.uky.edu/ArtsSciences/Classics/gender.html
Ground-breaking site on gender in the ancient world
and in the minds and insitutions of those who study that world. Visit often.
Classical,
Medieval, and related links and indices
http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/jod/bookmarks.1.html
This is a glimpse of the reasons why Professor James
J. O’Donnell is one of my heroes. The list here is rich and constantly
helpful. And this is merely Professor O’Donnell’s bookmarks he organized
for one of his courses!
