“From Ancient Manuscripts to the Digital Era. Readings and Literacies” (August 23rd-25th 2011, Université de Lausanne)
This international conference is proposed to you 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. A public evening will conclude the conference on the 25th August; it will be prepared by three meetings «Digital Humanities@Unil» during the spring semester 2011.
