Miller Prosser holds a doctorate in Hebrew and Northwest Semitic philology from the University of Chicago. He has many years of experience in data management and data publication for the humanities involving all types of digital information — texts, images, maps, etc. — and he teaches two of the core courses in Digital Studies: “Data Management for the Humanities” (Autumn) and “Data Publication for the Humanities” (Spring).
Miller provides consultation and training for the use of the OCHRE platform by faculty and students in all stages of their projects, from the initial acquisition of digital data to its final publication and archiving. He oversees the Online Publication Service of the Forum for Digital Culture, which runs on the OCHRE platform and provides a vehicle for peer-reviewed, open-access, and sustainable publication of digital materials created by scholars in the course of their research.
As part of his own research, Miller is co-director of the Ras Shamra Tablet Inventory (RSTI), an OCHRE-based project dedicated to the study of the texts and archaeology of the Late Bronze Age city of Ugarit (modern Ras Shamra) in western coastal Syria.
