Professor Charlotte Roueche

Biographical details

Charlotte Roueché studied Classics at Newnham College Cambridge; she developed an interest in the Byzantine world which took her to undertake research in Paris and, as a Harkness fellow, at Dumbarton Oaks, Washington DC. After that she began a career in the Home Civil Service, which was interrupted by a three year period in Kuwait. On return to London she was appointed a lecturer in Byzantine Language and Literature at King's. For many years she has recorded and published Greek inscriptions at Aphrodisias, in Turkey, and at Ephesus; she also published the Greek inscriptions of Kuwait. In autumn 2010 she was the Geddes-Harrower Visiting Professor at the University of Aberdeen. In 2011 she retired from her full-time post at King's, but continued as part-time Director of the Centre for Hellenic Studies; from 2012-2016 she held a part-time position as Senior Research Fellow in Digital Hellenic Studies.

From September 2000 to September 2002 she held a British Academy Research Readership, in order to prepare, with Joyce Reynolds, the final publication of the Greek and Latin inscriptions of Aphrodisias. With the support of the Leverhulme Trust 's Research Interchange Scheme, she prepared an online second edition of Aphrodisias in Late Antiquity (2004). With a further grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council she and colleagues published the full corpus, IAph2007, of all the Aphrodisias inscriptions discovered up to 1994. This work allowed a group of international scholars to develop, improve and standardise the EpiDoc schema for the publication of inscriptions. With the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at NYU, she and her team were awarded a Joint Digitisation grant for the Concordia project, to develop further tools, and to publish the Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania. She is now working on a project, initially funded by the Leverhulme Trust, to publish an online Corpus of the Inscriptions of Roman Cyrenaica, within the framework of a portal, Inscriptions of Libya, which will exploit the capacities of EpiDoc to present all known Graeco-Roman documents from Libya being published by scholars in the UK, France, Italy and elsewhere.
She directed the Arabic Sources for Byzantines and Crusaders project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, which supplemented the Greek source material in the Prosopography of the Byzantine World. A new edition of the Prosopography was published in August 2011. In 2010-11 she directed a pilot project on collaborative work in prosopography, the Register Medicorum Medii Aevi, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. She is currently working with colleagues on a revised edition of the PBW.

From 2010 to 2013 she led a Joint Research Project, Sharing Ancient Wisdoms, Exploring the tradition of Greek and Arabic wisdom literatures, funded by HERA – Humanities in the European Research Area: the resultant publication, Sharing Ancient Wisdoms, came out in 2013. As well as the Cyrenaican corpus, she  recently worked on a joint project with colleagues at King's and the University of Cyprus, the Heritage Gazetteer of Cyprus. She has just published a further Gazetteer project, the Heritage Gazetteer of Libya; with colleagues in King's Digital Laboratory and others she is working on further tools to record and publicise the heritage of Libya.

Research interests

Charlotte works on texts - inscribed or in manuscripts - from the Roman, late Antique and Byzantine periods. She is particularly interested in the interface between Digital Humanities and Classical and Byzantine studies, exploring how digital tools and digital publication can be used to break down barriers between disciplines, and between scholars across the world.
