Mina Monier PhD publication

DH+ is proud to announce the publication of the PhD of Mina Monier, post-doc, under the lead of Joan E. Taylor, King’s College, London:

Monier, Mina. Temple and Empire: The Context of the Temple Piety of Luke-Acts. Minneapolis: Lexington Fortress Academic, 2020.

Temple and Empire explores the theme of temple piety in Luke-Acts and 1 Clement in historical context. Mina Monier argues that situating both works in Trajanic Rome, and reading them through the lens of Roman imperial ideology explains their peculiarly positive presentation of the Temple as a form of reverence toward ancient worship and ancestral customs that would not offend, but would appeal to traditional Roman sensibilities.

Available on the publisher website.

DARIAH Conference 2020

DARIAH Virtual Annual Event 2020: Scholarly Primitives

October 7, 2020December 2, 2020

Blog published on DARIAH website : https://www.dariah.eu/event/dariah-annual-event-2020/

Virtual | Papers and poster sessions: November 10-13, 2020 

Workshops, Synergy sessions and Working Group meetings: October 7 – December 2 (weekly sessions)

Topic of this year’s event is Scholarly Primitives.

Twenty years after John Unsworth first formulated scholarly primitives as a set of recursive and interrelated functions that form the foundations of research activities across disciplines, theoretical frameworks or eras, the event will be an opportunity to revisit and freshly interrogate both the notion and the scope of scholarly primitives. To what extent does this particular set of scholarly primitives still correspond to our understanding of what humanities scholars do on a day-to-day basis? Has our understanding of research workflows changed over time significantly enough to require a new classification?

To register, please log in to find all information:  https://dariah-ae-2020.sciencesconf.org/

Keynote speakers 

We are happy to announce that this year’s event will feature two keynote speeches by John Unsworth (University of Virginia).

14 May 2020: IGNTP online seminar: Claire Clivaz: “Mark 16 and the codex k (Bobiensis): what are the mistakes at stake?”. The Latin codex k represents a very interesting case in the history of NT research: well known since scholarly memory began, it has never been really considered in the complex file of Mark 16 evidence, since it has mostly been considered as presenting mistakes or odd variants in Mark 16. Based on the latest editions of this codex and on images of the manuscript, this paper will present different reading options for this specific version of the last chapter of Mark, including what we should call a “k shorter ending”.
