Philology (AAR-SOF sponsor)

Philology, Broadly Speaking

The AAR-SOF invites papers on theoretical, historical, and procedural aspects of philology, with special attention to the capacity of philology to open connections to the past, to establish cultural meaning, and to frame a scholarly way of life. Philology helped scholars to address questions of antiquaarina interest, but also to establihs cultural meaning, and to orient themselves regarding the world of ideas, thereby delineating a philological way of life. Papers treating Renaissance engagement with patristic and late antique texts are most welcome.

Recent proliferating attention to philology—witness new handbooks (e.g. Trovato 2014, Hanna 2015) and trade histories (e.g., Turner 2014), and well as radical re-positionings (e.g. Pollack-Elman-Chang 2015) and reconceptualizations (e.g. Butler 2016)—suggests that this cultural moment of disdain for the humanities figures equally as a renewal and re-thinking of ancient global traditions of learning.
