DLL Seminar Summary

On June 25 and 26, 2015, the DLL convened an international seminar on Latin textual criticism in the digital age on the campus of the University of Oklahoma, in the Peggy V. Helmerich Collaborative Learning Center inside of Bizzell Library.

Participants came from Germany, Italy, Ireland, Canada, and the United States to talk about about various aspects of textual criticism, from technical standards for encoding critical editions to more philosophical papers about what digital critical editions are and/or should be.

We had originally planned to publish papers on the DLL's site, but most of the participants found that informal presentations of their work led to more fruitful discussion. Many used slideshows to illustrate their points, but the slides are not of much use without accompanying commentary from the participant. Nevertheless, since the presentations were of such high quality, we are currently in talks with the participants about developing them into publishable papers. We hope to have more news on that front soon.
