Welcome to the Digital Humanities Network
Digital Humanities is transforming the practice of arts-based or arts-linked research, and the University of Glasgow has one of the strongest and longest-established communities of scholars in this area. Our Digital Humanities network, supported by ArtsLab, offers a forum for sharing expertise and building connections both within and beyond the University's College of Arts.

Bridging the Continental Divide is a project funded by the AHRC and based in the School of Humanities at the University of Glasgow. The project's main aim is to produce an electronic edition of a selection of the poets in the Delitiae Poetarum Scotorum huius aevi illustrium (DPS, Amsterdam, 1637), the largest anthology of Scottish neo-Latin ever produced, which was edited by the Fife laird Sir John Scot of Scotstarvit and the Aberdonian poet Arthur Johnstone.
The resource will provide original scans and a full transcription of the Latin text of 13 of the 37 poets in the DPS, alongside an English translation of each poem with a full critical apparatus detailing all scriptural and philological references cited, and their historical and social context. The resource will also be supported by a range of articles analyzing the texts in both linguistic and historic contexts, along with a full range of biographical material on each poet, and broader essays on early modern Scotland's Latin culture.
