Histories of the Holograph - From Ancient to Modern Manuscripts and Beyond
A holograph can be defined as a manuscript that is written by the person named as, or presumed to be, its author. Usually, the notion of ‘modern manuscripts’ is used in genetic criticism to distinguish these private documents from earlier (e.g. ancient, medieval) manuscripts, which are often scribal copies, i.e. meant for public dissemination. But even though holographs are rarer in the pre-modern period, they do exist. Similarly, the era of the ‘modern manuscript’ needs to be confronted on the other end of its temporal spectrum with the era of the ‘digital manuscript’ – the born-digital holograph, so to speak.
The conference will be preceded by the GENESIS OXFORD 2022 conference , 15-17 March 2022, and a pre-conference colloquium on authors’ libraries, 15 March 2022.
