This paper is part of a larger lecture series entitled "Digital Humanities and the Ancient World." The events are co-sponsored by the AHMA Colloquium and the Townsend Center for the Humanities.

This workshop focuses on the automatic tagging and geo-visualization of primary texts from the ancient world. How can tools like Pelagio Project's Recogito allow us not only to map well-known literary texts, but also to aggregate, organize, and preserve texts in Coptic, Syriac, and other endangered languages. Come explore the relationship between texts and maps as we debate the means and purpose of digital preservation.
