Electronic resources for studying comedy.

 A hetaira dances

The sheer amount of websites, good and bad, devoted to classical studies is nothing less than staggering.

     Here are some useful sites, all of them informative and authoritative, which will enhance your study of Greek and Roman comedy.

  Didaskalia:  Ancient Theater Today.

"Your electronic source for the latest developments in Greek and Roman drama, dance, and music as they are performed today."  The site is also home to a respected classical journal, also called Didaskalia.

Of particular interest are the Introduction to Greek Stagecraft page, the Introduction to Roman Stagecraft page, and the virtual reconstruction of the Theater of Dionysus.

  The Perseus Project.

     The Perseus Project is the premier scholarly website for studying antiquity.  The online version contains images, texts, dictionaries — all of it well organized and fairly quick to access.

     Furthermore, the CD-ROM version of Perseus, which contains even more information than its online counterpart, is available over the local Skidmore network.  Ask Professor Curley how to gain access to this resource!

  The Ancient City of Athens.

Professors Kevin Glowacki and Nancy Klein of the Department of Classical Studies at Indiana University have created this comprehensive photographic archive of the archaeological and architectural remains of ancient Athens.

Images relating to the Theater of Dionysus are indexed on the page devoted to the south slope of the Acropolis.

  Interactive Ancient Mediterranean.

     Sponsored in part by the departments of Classics and History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, IAM is an "on-line atlas of the ancient Mediterranean world designed to serve the needs and interests of students" at all levels of education.

  Greek Comedy in Performance.

     "A research project to use VR technologies for imaging ancient theatre artefacts, and to perform New Comedy with reconstructed masks."  Theory, images, movies.
