The second MARK16 event will be co-organized by Claire Clivaz (DH+, SIB), Mina Monier (DH+, SIB) and Dan Batovici (CULouvain and KU Leuven), on the 2-3 June 2022, as online conference:
The Transmission of Mark’s Endings in Different Traditions and Languages
The topic of the endings of the Gospel of Mark have been studied for centuries and remains open to diverse hypotheses. Despite this large 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 online.
Moreover, the concept that had served as a basis to the project Marc multilingue, which produced a multilingual study of the first eight chapters of Mark, 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 should aim to provide researchers with the Status Quaestionis. We invite presentations on the short ending (Mark 16:8), the shorter ending (conclusio brevior), the long ending (16:9-20) or considering all together. We encourage particularly presentations highlighting the role of the digital humanities in reshaping and reconfiguring the study of New Testament textual criticism, based on the Mark 16 as a case study. We encourage also 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).
A call for papers will be issued in 2021: stay tuned on this webpage for further information!
On the 20th of November, the RBL has published a review of Claire Clivaz, Ecritures digitales. Digital writing, digital Scriptures (Brill, 2019), by Clarke Bates: https://www.sblcentral.org/home/bookDetails/13185
A four pages careful reading: thank you to his author! Accessible to the SBL members.
On the 11th of November 2020, the DARIAH General assembly has accepted the file of Switzerland as observer member of DARIAH from the 01.01.21 to the 31.12.23, under the lead of DaSCH (see DaSCH 12th November announcement). This vote requires an adaptation of the DARIAH status, and the final acceptation is now in the hands of the European Commission. Switzerland is indeed the first country to have applied as a DARIAH observer member. This status is conceived to lead to the full membership.
Prof. Dr. Lukas Rosenthaler has presented at the DARIAH GA the Swiss membership file, as director of DaSCH, the Data and Service Center for the Humanities. All Swiss institutions working on Digital Humanities can rejoice of this great moment, that follows a first step 2014-2020 during which nine Swiss academic institutions have been DARIAH cooperating partners: EPFL, the Swiss Academy of Social Sciences and Humanities, the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, the Universities of Basel, Bern, Geneva, Lausanne, Neuchâtel and Zurich. From the 01.01.21, all the Swiss academic institutions working in DH can be in touch with DaSCH to foster the DARIAH presence in CH, as soon as the European Commission would have confirmed the adaptation of the DARIAH status.
In waiting for the official announcement by DARIAH and DaSCH!
