I work at the intersection of computing, philology, and linguistics both as an independent scholar and as a software developer working on digital humanities projects with other scholars. My interests include morphology (theoretical, computational, and historical), Indo-European linguistics, Linguistic Linked Open Data, text encoding and annotation of historical language corpora (especially Ancient Greek but also Old English and Old Norse), machine-actionable language description, computer-aided historical language learning (especially Ancient Greek but also Old English and Old Norse).

Dr. Samuel N. Dorf is a musicologist and dance historian. He has published articles dealing with the performance and reinvention of ancient Greek music and dance in fin-de-siècle Paris, and queer music reception and has presented papers at history, queer studies, dance history, archaeology, and musicology conferences throughout North America and Europe. His research areas include intersections between musicology and dance studies and the history of technology, reception studies, queer studies, film studies, and the history of performance practice.

I was awarded my Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge (UK) in March 2017 for a dissertation on the linguistic prehistory and historical dialectology of the Aeolic dialects of Ancient Greek. Since October 2015 I have been also collaborating as a research associate with the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History (Jena, Germany) on a new database of Indo-European cognate relations. Since Fall 2019 I have also been a sessional lecturer in Classics at MacEwan University (Edmonton, Canada). My research interests can be subdivided into a handful of related topics:

  • Greek language and linguistics (from Mycenaean to the modern spoken language)
  • Ancient Greek dialect studies (from both literary and sub-literary sources)
  • Ancient Greek epigraphy and papyrology
  • Indo-European comparative linguistics and philology (including comparative myth and poetics)
  • Homer and other Early Greek poetry
  • Etymology and the Indo-European lexicon
  • Language classification, cladistics, and subgrouping methodologies in historical linguistics

I now teach both Spanish and English in a dual language elementary school, and I will co-direct an academic-vocabulary development program to support bi-literacy this year (2018-19).

I’m a PhD student at the University of Virginia with interests in Greek religion (and its reception by classical and post-classical writers), Greek linguistics, and the application of second language acquisition research to the teaching of Latin and ancient Greek. Before coming to UVA, I studied Classics at the University of Kentucky and language teaching at the University of Illinois. In the summers, I’ve taught intensive Greek courses for the Polis Institute in Rome and Florida.

MemberAnnelies Cazemier

…Lecturer In Ancient Greek History…

I am an ancient historian with a particular interest in the Greek world, Hellenistic history, and religion, as well as Greek history during the Roman period. Teaching in a History department at Southampton, I am also increasingly fascinated by the reception of the Greek world in later periods of history. My forthcoming book on Greek Sanctuaries and the Rise of Rome explores the spread of Roman power as seen from religious sites in Greece, the Aegean, and Asia Minor (from the third until the early first century BCE). It brings out the key role of cults and sanctuaries in early exchanges between Greeks, Romans, and Hellenistic rulers – in war, diplomacy, and trade. As part of my work for the Copenhagen Associations Project, I undertook research on ancient Greek associations, carrying out surveys and detailed studies of epigraphic evidence (esp. from the Aegean), and analysing religious aspects, foreign involvement, and relations with Rome. My ongoing research interests include the local histories and wider connections of islands in the Aegean from the fifth century BCE, through the Hellenistic age, into the Roman Imperial period; Greek sanctuaries and their networks; and travel and mobility in the ancient world.
