Virtual Research Environments and Ancient Manuscripts

Call for papers

This workshop 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.

This workshop invites papers that explore the significance of VREs on
the study of manuscript cultures and research in the humanities,
especially papers that explore issues related to Early Jewish and
Christian Literature, New Testament and Classical Studies. If you are
involved in a VRE, work with manuscript cultures using digital tools, or
reflect critically on these emerging research spaces, you are invited to
submit to both organizersan abstract of300 wordsexploring one of
the following questions or related issues: how do VREs enlighten
particular manuscripts or manuscript cultures? How do VREs differ from
or supplement traditional research models? What critical benefits or
difficulties arise in using VREs? How can research on manuscript
cultures be further advanced using digital tools? What are the
limitations and challenges of VREs? Selected papers will be submitted
afterwards to Classics@, the CHS online journal
journal), for a special issue co-edited by the two organisers.

Deadline: 1 December 2019; answers will be provided before the end
of 2019.

Please forward your abstract to claire.clivaz@sib.swiss and
