The Greek Anthology, Global Philology and new models of scholarly production

Gregory Crane studied classical philology at Harvard University, where he obtained his Ph.D. in 1985. Shortly after obtaining it, he was the co-director and then editor-in-chief of the Perseus Project, a digital library project that brings together resources in classical studies, and assistant professor at Harvard. In 1992, he became an assistant professor at Tufts University, where he later became professor and then director of the department of classical philology. He is interested in Greek writers, and more particularly in Thucydides in two of his published works The Blinded Eye: Thucydides and the New Written Word and Thucydides and the Ancient Simplicity. The Limits of Political Realism, but also the link between the social sciences (humanities) and the development of technology. In 2010, he earned the Google Digital Humanities Award for his work in digital humanities. Since 2013, he holds a Alexander von Humboldt Chair at the University of Leipzig.
