[Le STUDIUM CONFERENCES] Ephemeral Media of Knowledge: Perspectives From Intellectual History and the Digital Humanities

Date: 22 May 2024 to 23 May 2024

Lieu: Site CESR (Centre d'Etudes Supérieures de la Renaissance) salle Rapin

Organisateur : - Dr Stefan Heßbrüggen-Walter, LE STUDIUM / FIAS Research Fellow in residence at CESR / CNRS, University of Tours. - Prof. Elena Pierazzo, CESR / CNRS, University of Tours

Résumé : 

The projected conference is intended to serve as a platform to present and contextualise first, preliminary results of my project "The Afterlife of a Renaissance Genre: A Census of Dissertations  in French Libraries 1500-1800". It will discuss the genre of the dissertation in comparison to other ephemeral genres and modes of scholarly writing (scientific manuscripts, letters) and develop  preliminary assessments of their relevance for pertinent disciplines (medicine, law, theology, philosophy). Besides that, we will begin a conversation between experts in DH and domain experts with regard to two questions: What can DH contribute to the analysis of ephemeral genres from the point of view of traditional intellectual history? And to which extent may digital approaches extend and modify existing research traditions, e. g. through the generation of new questions and research areas?
