*Virtual Research Environments and Ancient Manuscripts*

**

/Call for papers/

This workshop is focused on an important challenge in digital 
humanities: what changes when research on ancient manuscripts occurs in 
a Virtual Research Environment (VRE), especially in Early Jewish and 
Christian Literature, New Testament, and Classical Studies? Because they 
offer access to diverse information regardless of geographical location, 
VREs continue to define the research landscape of the humanities in more 
complex ways. They serve as the new “covers” of scientific objects, 
replacing the paper covers of printed books as signs of knowledge 
territories. As some have suggested, VREs are likely to become the 
default location for critical research and other cultural activities in 
the very near future.

This workshop invites papers that explore the significance of VREs on 
the study of manuscript cultures and research in the humanities, 
especially papers that explore issues related to Early Jewish and 
Christian Literature, New Testament and Classical Studies. If you are 
involved in a VRE, work with manuscript cultures using digital tools, or 
reflect critically on these emerging research spaces, you are invited to 
submit to both organizers**an abstract of*300 *words**exploring one of 
the following questions or related issues: how do VREs enlighten 
particular manuscripts or manuscript cultures? How do VREs differ from 
or supplement traditional research models? What critical benefits or 
difficulties arise in using VREs? How can research on manuscript 
cultures be further advanced using digital tools? What are the 
limitations and challenges of VREs? Selected papers will be submitted 
afterwards to Classics@, the CHS online journal 
<https://chs.harvard.edu/CHS/article/display/1167.classics-introduction-to-journal>, 
for a special issue co-edited by the two organisers.

*Deadline*: *1 December 2019*; answers will be provided before the end 
of 2019.
