        Subject: Conference From Ancient Manuscripts to the Digital Era 2011

Dear all,

An interdisciplinary teams of researchers organizes in Lausanne (CH) an
international meeting "From Ancient Manuscripts to the Digital Era. Readings
and Literacies", 23rd-25th August 2011.

Website: 	www.unil.ch/digitalera2011

Deadline for the call for papers: 30th April 2011

The conference seeks to demonstrate that the Western world is going from a
specific "Christian Era" to a Common Western and non Western "Digital Era".
The present evolution of the Ancient manuscript allows one to detect this
turning-point, for example by observing the digital editions of Homer and
the New Testament. The notions of authorship and critical edition are
questioned, as well as the status of the "religions of the Book" in a
post-book Age. A public evening will conclude the conference on the 25th
August, with editors booths, artistic and digital animations, a
demonstration of scholarly application, and a round table: "What will come
after the book?". Three previous meetings "Digital Humanities at Unil" will
happen during the spring semester 2011, with a debate on the 4th April about
the opportunity to create a "digital humanities department" between
Humanities and New Technologies in Lausanne.

Claire Clivaz (New Testament and Early Christianity), Jérôme Meizoz
(French Literature), François Vallotton (Modern History), with Frederic
Kaplan (New Technologies)
