Decoding the Past: Critical Editions and Their Editors
Friday, 1 November – Saturday, 2 November 2019
A conference organised by the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies.
This two-day conference focuses on critical editions of medieval and early modern texts. Senior academics and early career researchers will collaborate to explore the techniques and methodologies involved in making critical editions, as well as the interactions of computer science and web-hosting specialists with scholars in the digital humanities. Presentations will touch upon editorial choices regarding transcription and translation, intertextuality, the representation of identity in manuscripts and the interactions of computer science and web-hosting specialists with scholars in the digital humanities.
The conference is sponsored by the Trinity Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, the Society for Renaissance Studies, Medium Aevum (the Society for the Study of Medieval Languages and Literature), Dublin City Council, and the Trinity College Dublin Association and Trust.
