Digital Classics at FIEC/CA 2019

There will be three panels (two-hour sessions of varying structures) of interest to digital classicists running as part of the joint conference of the Fédération internationale des associations d’études classiques and the Classical Association, next week. I’ll try to get participants to write fuller reports eventually, but in the meantime, here is a brief outline of the activities.
