Database of Classical Scholars

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

The Database of Classical Scholars contains biographical entries for hundreds of the most important modern American and British classicists. Each entry contains vital information, followed by a narrative assessment of the scholar's life and contribution. In each entry, a 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 is of course fully searchable in all fields. The website also incorporates a separate Wikiform database for living classicists to submit entries on themselves. DBCS also features 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.

In 2016, the Center for Digital Humanities transferred permanent stewardship of the Database of Classical Scholars to Rutgers University.
