BPS receives funding for Tebtunis Papyri integration

Census return, Tebtunis papyrus

The Berkeley Prosopography Services (BPS) project has received funding from the Digital Humanities at Berkeley program to support integration with data encoded using Epidoc, a standard used by the Center for Tebtunis Papyri and numerous other classical projects.

The BPS team applied for funding as part of the Digital Humanities at Berkeley collaborative research grant program, supported by funding from the Mellon Foundation. Proposals were reviewed by an independent panel of faculty and staff, and evaluated on the basis of the strength of the proposed collaboration, engagement with the UC Berkeley community, feasibility, sustainability, technology choices, and scholarly value.
