He earned his PhD in Northwest Semitic Philology from the University of Chicago. Prosser’s research focuses on the socioeconomic organization of the Late Bronze Age kingdom of Ugarit and surrounding regions. He is the co-director of the Ras Shamra Tablet Inventory, a digital publication of inscribed objects from Ras Shamra-Ugarit. See his chapter, “Digital Philology in the Ras Shamra Tablet Inventory Project: Text Curation through Computational Intelligence.” Prosser also investigates questions related to the digital representation of humanities research more broadly, from digital textual studies to archaeology.
