The Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation is pleased to announce that ToposText©  won a 2016 “Digital Humanities Award”, in the category Best Use DH Public Engagement. This unique website and application employs an interactive map to connect places to ancient literature. It includes information on more than 5,350 ancient sites, museums and archaeological sites.

Digital Humanities Awards are a set of annual awards where the public is able to nominate resources for the recognition of talent and expertise in the digital humanities community. The resources are nominated and voted for entirely by the public.” The voting was open until 25 February and ToposText competed among websites and applications of the highest quality from many countries.

The concept of ToposText © is conceived and executed by Brady Kiesling, an archaeologist-historian, former member of the US diplomatic mission and member of the American School of Classical Studies in Athens. The realization of the project is made by the software company Pavla S.A., with the support of the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation.
