eScripta (Virtually) in Lausanne
We will be presenting the eScripta project at the on-line conference, Virtual Research Environments and Ancient Manuscripts at the University of Lausanne on Thursday and Friday, 10 and 11 September 2020.
This conference is focused on an important challenge in digital humanities: what changes when research on ancient manuscripts occurs in a Virtual Research Environment (VRE), especially in Early Jewish and Christian Literature, New Testament, and Classical Studies? Because they offer access to diverse information regardless of geographical location, VREs continue to define the research landscape of the humanities in more complex ways. They serve as the new “covers” of scientific objects, replacing the paper covers of printed books as signs of knowledge territories. As some have suggested, VREs are likely to become the default location for critical research and other cultural activities in the very near future.VREs and Ancient Manuscripts: https://claireclivaz.hypotheses.org/930
Our paper will be on ‘The eScriptorium VRE for Manuscript Cultures’, and is scheduled for 11h10 CET on Thursday 10 September. Further details, including an abstract of all papers, can be found on the conference website. We hope to see some of you there!
