Studying Written Artefacts: Challenges and Perspectives, University of Hamburg, September 27–29, 2023

The Cluster of Excellence ‘Understanding Written Artefacts’ is pleased to announce its main conference ‘Studying Written Artefacts: Challenges and Perspectives’. This is an in-person event. The conference will take place over three days of panel presentations structured in three parallel sessions. It 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.

Mirroring the multifaceted research of the Cluster and encouraging a comparative perspective in geographical and chronological terms, the conference will draw attention to emerging research topics and innovative methodological approaches from within the humanities and natural and computer sciences. Contributions will focus, for instance, on the study of creation, transmission, and archiving of written artefacts; on single written artefacts important for their revealing features or their challenging typology and categorisation; on small and large scale theoretical reflections on written artefacts; on the ethical aspects of research on written artefacts.
