This conference in Arts and Humanities 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. Details on :
