Ancient Medical World: Translating and Comparing Across Cultures
The Ancient Medical World Project is a collaborative translation project of previously untranslated medical texts, such as much of Galen. Additionally, it will bring together medical texts from across cultures in the original and translation to foster interconnections in their study and encourage understanding the ancient world as a whole. It is led by Amit Shilo and Kyle Johnson.

We are currently deciding on the best platform for this large-scale project. The Libanius Translation Project has taught us much about the technological and intellectual challenges of collaborative translation, which we are looking to address. Those who are interested in becoming editors or offering suggestions are invited to e-mail the editors on the link above.
