Database of Classical Scholars

The Database of Classical Scholars is a project initiated by the American Philological Association and provides a virtual research environment for study of American, British, and European classical scholars.

Each biographical entry contains vital information, followed by a narrative assessment of the scholar's life and contribution. The third section contains the title of the dissertation (if any) followed by extensive listing of the scholar's works and source material for the scholar's life. Each entry will be fully searchable in all fields. The website will also incorporate a separate Wikiform database for living classicists to submit entries on themselves, and will feature videos created by the Classics Conclave of Boston in which prominent classicists give their analysis of the present state of scholarship on the ancient world.
