Des manuscrits antiques à l’ère digitale. Lectures et littératies
Université de Lausanne, August 23-25, 2011
Among the papers presented at this conference, we signal the following ones:
- Leonard Muellner et Mary Ebbott (Boston): Multitextual Reading and the Future of the Homer Multitext (August 24)
- Marie-Claire Beaulieu, Francesco Mambrini & J. Matthew Harrington (Tufts University, Boston – Perseus Project): Toward a Digital Editio Princeps: Using Digital Technologies to Create a More Complete Scholarly Edition in the Classics (August 24)
- Alexandra Trachsel (Université de Hambourg): Collecting Fragments Today: What Status Will Have a Fragment in the Era of Digital Philology? (August 24)
This international conference is proposed by Claire Clivaz (IRSB, FTSR), Jérôme Meizoz (FDi, Lettres) and François Vallotton (SHC, Lettres). It seeks to demonstrate the major impact of the Digital Era on knowledge, by studying the history of cultural technologies. The present evolution of the Ancient manuscript allows one to detect this turning-point, notably with the digital editions of Homer and the New Testament. The notions of authorship and critical edition are questionned : modern history and contemporary analysis have to be enrooted in ancient memory to reflect upon the digital turn.
