Workshop on Digital Scholarly Editions in East-Central Europe

Date: 8-9 November 2017

Place: Institute of Literary Research of The Polish Academy of Sciences, Pałac Staszica (Staszic’s Palace), Nowy Świat 72, Warszawa, Poland.

Language of the symposium: English

The team of New Panorama of Polish Literature (nplp.pl) at the Institute of Literary Research of The Polish Academy of Sciences is organising a two-day workshop focused on digital scholarly editions in broadly conceived East-Central Europe. As the regional contexts have always been important in Digital Humanities, we would like to invite teams from Central, South- and North-East Europe, working in the field of digital scholarly editions to share their experience. The main aims of the symposium are:

  • to showcase the existing regional projects in order to foster future cooperation;
  • to exchange innovative solutions;
  • to discuss editorial difficulties unknown for print editions;
  • to locate our scholarly activities in the regional context.

The proposal should include name and email of the presenter, abstract (ca. 300 words) and link to the project website. Speakers will be given 30 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion.

A limited number of travel grants is available to support travel (up to EUR 300) and two-night stay at a hotel arranged by organizers. Please indicate if you apply for travel funding and accommodation. The workshop will begin on 8 November at 10 am and will end on 9 November around  3 pm.

Proposals should be submitted to: knicinski@gmail.com or pwrams@gmail.com by 25 September 2017. Proposers will be notified by 29 September.
