Glossing cultural change: Comparative perspectives on manuscript annotation, c. 600–1200 CE

Lieu : Galway, Irlande

Date : 21-22 juin 2018

Glossing, the practice of annotating manuscripts between the lines and/or in the margins, was a widespread cultural practice wherever books were being read, studied and taught. As an indication of this, the Network for the Study of Glossing currently has 85 members with research interests in glossed manuscripts written in Arabic, Breton, Chinese, German, Greek, Egyptian, English, French, Hebrew, Hittite, Irish, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Sanskrit, Turkish, and Welsh.

This two-day conference brings together 24 speakers (from 15 countries), working in a variety of fields, to discuss aspects of glossing from a comparative perspective. A particular focus will be on how glosses engage with and reflect the dynamics of contemporary cultural change, rather than acting merely as passive repositories of inherited tradition.
