Organised by the University of Lausanne, with the support of Institut Romand des Sciences Bibliques, Fonds National Suisse, Anthropos, Formation doctorale interdisciplinaire, CUSO Théologie, CUSO EDOCSA and the Association pour l’histoire du livre et de la lecture en Suisse Romande.
The conference in Arts and Humanities aims at demonstrating 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.
The colloquium will be concluded by a public evening, on August 25th with posters, editors’ booth, artistic animations and a round table discussion, bringing together publishers and scholars and led by a journalist from Radio-télévision Suisse: “What Will Come After the Book?”.
Call for papers for scholars and PhD students in Sciences of Antiquity, New Testament and Early Christianity, Biblical Sciences, Modern History, French and English Literature is open until 30 April 2011.
