I have a joint position with Dumbarton Oaks and Georgetown, here in DC. I work mainly on early Byzantine Greek literature and literary history. I have published two books and several articles in this area. I have also tried to think about the technology and tools I am using and where they may fall short: http://scottfjohnson.com/blog/2011/10/25/asterisk-scholarship-a-dystopic-view-on-digital-research.html But I am not dystopic generally (!) and am excited to learn what people are doing to surmount some of the problems I am encountering. My primary interests are in: 1) bibliographic tools and how they connect to library catalogues (mainly Zotero); 2) the encoding of ancient texts and making them open access (TEI/XML); and 3) the digitization of ancient manuscripts as well as scholarly publications.
