ESTS Conference 2014: Textual Trails. Transmissions of Oral and Written Texts (Helsinki)

Sakari Katajamäki
The 11th conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship

 

TEXTUAL TRAILS. Transmissions of Oral and Written Texts

Helsinki, 30 October – 1 November 2014

Texts tend to travel across space and time, whether they are carried by sound waves, embedded in parchments, codices and books, or stored online. They pass from mouth to mouth, from singers' performances to scholars' notes, from stone engravings to printed books, or from writing desks to digital editions, and each of these transmissions leaves traces...

The eleventh international conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship, TEXTUAL TRAILS. Transmissions of Oral and Written Texts (Helsinki, 30 October – 1 November 2014), will explore all kinds of textual trails from various angles of scholarly editing and textual scholarship.

We are looking forward to an exciting three-day programme with almost 70 papers by textual scholars from four continents and over twenty countries.
