Textual Criticism of the Historical Books

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Whereas all text critical paper proposals on Sam, Kgs, Joshua and Judges, and the occasional other text critical juicy book are welcome, one session will be about digital tools and methods in textual criticism. We welcome proposals on topics such as: Combining textual criticism with computer science or computational methods; benefits and challenges of digital editing; implementation of best practices in digital textual criticism. The proposals should feature original research carried out by the presenter(s), but the presentations can include a short general introduction to a related theme or a short demonstration of a tool or practice.
