Main content

The ninth workshop in the Studia Stemmatologica series: “New Insights in Stemmatology” will be held in Bergen, Norway. Due to the corona restrictions, we have decided to postpone the workshop to Thursday 30 June - Friday 1 July 2022. The workshop will be held at Grand Hotel Terminus in central Bergen.

This is a continuation of the Stemmatological Workshops initiated at the University of Helsinki in January 2010.

The Scientific Committee of the workshop in Bergen is composed of the following members:

  • Marina Buzzoni (Ca’ Foscari University of Venice)
  • Aidan Keally Conti (University of Bergen)
  • Odd Einar Haugen (University of Bergen)

The Studia Stemmatologica 2022 workshop “New Insights in Stemmatology” will explore new theoretical trends in stemmatology, as well as their application within both textual scholarship and other fields of study. Traditionally focussed on textual scholarship, stemmatology relates broadly to the study of historical and genealogical relationships between groups and units. A recent overview of approaches and applications both within textual scholarship and more widely can be found in the current Handbook of Stemmatology (2020).  

The 2022 workshop is open to a wide range of topics related to the use of stemmatological methods:

  • new theoretical approaches to stemmatology;
  • historical approaches to stemmatology;
  • their application in different research fields: textual scholarship, anthropology, musicology, linguistics, etc.
  • new or updated stemmatological tools.

The official language of the workshop is English.

A list of speakers and their titles will be posted on these pages in due course. All talks will be made available in a Collection of Abstracts before the Workshop.

N.B. The workshop is planned as an in-person meeting. If this turns out to be inadvisable even in June 2022, the organizers are prepared to hold the workshop in a virtual format. All details of the (either in-person or virtual) attendance will be shared here.
