Datasets for Biblical Languages

In this year’s session, the Copenhagen Alliance will focus on MACULA, a set of integrated datasets for biblical languages that includes tools for reading, curating, and creating new datasets. MACULA datasets and code are freely licensed. This project is in early development. We welcome feedback to help us build frameworks that are useful for biblical scholarship and research.

This first session (M19-112) will take place on Saturday November 19, from 9.00-11.30am. The location is SD-Plaza Court 5.
