NEO-LATIN IN BAROQUE EUROPEThis is European collaborative project focusing on European peripheral areas in the post-Reformation period, with a view to creating an interdisciplinary research network comprising historians, linguists and literary critics, who would bring their respective expertise together in order to provide new source material for the reconstruction and correct evaluation of intellectual life in the Counter-Reformation period, as well as contributing to the study of the development of Latin literary language in early modern Europe. An academic web portal of digitised texts and original publications is envisaged.

UNLOCKING SACRED LANDSCAPES (UnSaLa)
This inter-disciplinary network is concerned with the diachronic study of the temporality, spatiality and materiality of Mediterranean sacred landscapes in general. The function of the Network is based on an agreement of collaboration between the Department of Classics of Trinity College Dublin, the Laboratory of Geophysical-Satellite Remote Sensing and Archaeo-environment of The Institute for Mediterranean Studies in Crete, and the Archaeological Research Unit of the University of Cyprus.
The Dublin 2015 workshop (15-17 May) is the kick off meeting for the establishment of the network. Further meetings are planned for 2018 (on Digital Humanities and Ritual Space, Institute of Mediterranean Studies in Crete) and 2021 (on Religious and Insular Identities in Context, University of Cyprus).
Collaborators: Dr Giorgos Papantoniou, Trinity College Dublin (Network Co-ordinator); Dr Christine Morris, Trinity College Dublin; Dr Apostolos Sarris Institute for Mediterranean Studies, Crete; Dr Athanasios Vionis, University of Cyprus
