MARK16 conference 2-3 June 2022: call for papers

Call for papers for an online international conference, 2-3 June 2022 : The Transmission of Mark’s Endings  in Different Traditions and Languages

Claire Clivaz (DH+, SIB, CH), Mina Monier (DH+, SIB, CH) and Dan Batovici (UCLouvain and KU Leuven, BE)

The five-year SNSF project MARK16[1] organizes its second conference in collaboration with Dan Batovici about the Gospel of Mark’s endings in different traditions and languages. It will take place entirely online, on the 2nd and 3rd of June 2022. We are very pleased to announce that several colleagues have accepted the invitation deliver a paper at this conference, as listed below. We hereby launch a call for short papers (about 15 min) on the topic, based on the following summary. The ​proceedings will be published as a thematic issue of the COMSt Bulletin. We are welcoming proposals of 300 words, until the 31st of October 2021. Please forward your proposal to claire.clivaz@sib.swiss, mina.monier@sib.swiss and dan.batovici@kuleuven.be.

Summary: The topic of the endings of the Gospel of Mark has been studied for centuries and remains open to diverse hypotheses. Despite this large corpus of work done on this question, particularly in the past couple of centuries, new frontiers of research tools emerge from reading the manuscripts that are still not transcribed or not easily accessible to scholars. The digital revolution brings its part of innovation to this quest and draws scholars’ attention to the materiality of the texts, highlighted as documents accessible online.

The concept that had served as a basis to the project Marc multilingue[2], deserves to be applied to the complex file of the Mark endings. On the 2nd and 3rd of June 2022 MARK16 conference, we intend to cover the reception and transmission of Mark 16 in different languages and traditions: Greek, Latin, Coptic, Syriac, Arabic, Armenian, Ethiopic, Gothic, Georgian, and Old Slavonic manuscripts. This aims to provide researchers with the Status Quaestionis.

We invite therefore presentations on the shortest ending (Mark 16:8), the shorter ending (conclusio brevior), the longer ending (16:9-20) as well as papers considering all of them together, in the manuscripts and literature of any ancient tradition. We encourage particularly presentations highlighting the role of digital humanities in reshaping and reconfiguring the study of New Testament textual criticism, based on the Mark 16 as a case study. We also encourage all contributions that are focusing on codicology and paratextual elements in the diverse manuscripts of the last chapter of Mark. This conference will be the second event of the SNSF MARK16 project, (https://mark16.sib.swiss).

Newsletter by Judith Schulte, OPERAS Communication officer

OPERAS is glad to announce that the COESO project (Collaborative Engagement on Societal Issues) kicked-off on 19/20 January 2021. The 3-year participatory research project, funded by the European Commission through a Science with and for Society grant, and supported by the OPERAS research infrastructure, will serve as a meeting point between various European communities: the social sciences and humanities community, the citizen science community, as well as the open scholarly communication community.

The OPERAS Research for Society Service will be further developed in the COESO project. http://operas-eu.org/4493; https://twitter.com/OPERASEU/status/1357348270083690504

OPERAS and PKP join forces to launch “European Community in SSH” Forum

It aims to bring together stakeholders involved in various capacities in the scholarly communication process, such as publishers, editors, publishing platform managers, or reviewers and researchers to stimulate a dialogue. The Forum is open to everyone involved or interested in scholarly communication, not only to OPERAS community members or European stakeholders. The “European Community in SSH” is moderated by EKT on behalf of OPERAS.
