Meeting Description:

Textual Trails - Transmissions of Oral and Written Texts
11th Conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship
Helsinki, 30 October - 1 November 2014

Texts tend to travel across space and time, carried by sound waves, written on parchments and codices, sealed in envelopes and travel trunks, and streaming as bits in the internet. They pass from mouth to mouth, from singers' performances to scholars' notes, from stone engravings to printed books, or from writing desks to digital editions.

Sometimes it is possible to trace the trail of a text or a fragment via several phases of transmission. These trails can be, for instance, a part of the genesis of one writing or an editorial history of one literary work, or they can run through a historical text tradition of scribal texts.

The eleventh conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship, Textual Trails. Transmissions of Oral and Written Texts (Helsinki, 30 October -1 November 2014), seeks to explore all kinds of textual trails from various angles of scholarly editing and textual scholarship.
