Studying Written Artefacts (Hamburg 27-29 September 2023): Call for Paper

Cluster of Excellence – Understanding Written Artefacts

Studying Written Artefacts: Challenges and Perspectives

The conference will take place over three days of panel presentations structured in two parallel sessions, on 27–29 September 2023; an additional programme will be duly announced.

For a long time, researchers have debated when writing was invented and written artefacts first produced. They have asked whether this was a peculiarity of homo sapiens and what writing actually is, considering whether posing such a question is, in fact, methodologically possible. Most researchers can agree that the invention and use of writing has had such a profound impact on the history of humanity that its consequences continue even in the most sophisticated digital applications, even though manuscripts and writings still remain with us.

This conference will provide a unique forum for sharing experiences and views among the international community working on written artefacts, showcasing pioneering research, and developing new ideas.

UWA Conference 2023 welcomes panels and paper proposals that draw attention to emerging research topics and innovative methodological approaches from within the humanities and natural and computer sciences, on the study of creation, transmission, and archiving of written artefacts. Welcome also are contributions on single written artefacts important for their revealing features or their challenging typology and categorization, and small and large scale theoretical reflections on written artefacts. Proposals which transcend the study of particular geographical areas and apply comparative and/or global perspectives are strongly encouraged.

As for written artefacts we take the broad working definition of any artificial or natural object that have written or pictorial (visual) signs. This definition includes the traditional notion of manuscript, in all attested book forms, and inscription, and at the same time goes well beyond these broad categories.

The call for paper is open now.

Digital Epigraphy in 2022: A Report from the Scoping Survey of the FAIR Epigraphy Project

Dear fellow epigraphers,we are excited to share the results of a survey circulated on behalf of FAIR Epigraphy earlier this year! We have just published the report “Digital Epigraphy in 2022: A Report from the Scoping Survey of the FAIR Epigraphy Project” on Zenodo.You can access the report either as an interactive HTML version  or download the report as a PDF.We have gathered responses from all our partners and 27 epigraphic projects that provide a representative sample of the discipline in 2022.Based on the responses, we plan to undertake several in-depth interviews with our partners to confirm some of our assumptions and to draft a concrete plan for the following three years. However, it is clear from the survey responses, that we should direct our attention to three main tasks:1. implementing and hosting standards for epigraphic vocabularies (e.g. inscription type, material, object etc.) 2. implementing and hosting standards for bibliographical records (e.g. stable and unique records for all major epigraphic editions) 3. building a platform for FAIR and Open Epigraphy on the infrastructure provided by the University of Oxford (CSAD), that will function as an information hub, providing not only training and good practice examples, but also hosting the resources and tools.We hope to run a similar survey annually to track any progress within the discipline and closely monitor changing needs of individual projects in digital epigraphy.Lastly, we would like to invite you for an informal evening of digital epigraphy, organised by FAIR Epigraphy and held at CIEGL XVII in Bordeaux on Thursday 1 Sep 2022 (the exact location will be specified shortly before the event).With best wishes,FAIR Epigraphy teamImran Asif, Petra Heřmánková, Marietta Horster, Jonathan Prag The FAIR Epigraphy Project https://www.csad.ox.ac.uk/fair-epigraphy
