The Impact of Digital Humanities on the Study of Non-Canonical Texts

One or two Traditions of Eastern Late Antiquity (AAR) sessions in 2017 will be co-sponsored with the SBL Digital Humanities and Pseudepigrapha program units. All papers for these sessions should explore the influence of the Digital Humanities in general, and the ongoing digitization of manuscripts in particular, on the study of non-canonical texts. These texts must fall into the broad category of “pseudepigrapha,” or stem from or have been influential in Eastern Late Antiquity, but need not fall into both categories. The session will provide opportunities for comparison between Digital Humanities projects in these subject areas even if individual papers focus on one or the other. Important questions to explore under this heading may include: What new opportunities does digitization provide for the study of non-canonical texts/texts from Eastern Late Antiquity? Does digitization and online availability confirm or challenge canonical divides and academic assessment schemes? Are canonical texts privileged or treated differently than non-canonical texts? Are earlier Western texts prioritized over Eastern Late Antique texts? How does digitization affect the imaginations of literary categories?

The Traditions of Eastern Late Antiquity program unit also welcomes submissions on *any* topic related to our subject area, for a second (or third) session.
