“What type of document is it? Reflections from two ongoing projects (d-scribes and aphrodito.info)”

Typology workshop of Grammateus project

Abstract: This talk will present recent updates on two ongoing projects. The first is based in Basel, led by the presenter and called “Reuniting fragments, identifying scribes and characterizing scripts: the Digital paleography of Greek and Coptic papyri (d-scribes.org)”. The second is a collective work under the direction of Prof. Jean-Luc Fournet, based in Paris, in which the presenter contributes to the team effort of building an online guide to the papyri of Aphrodito (forthcoming aphrodito.info). Both projects had to reflect upon the classification of documentary papyri according to types. The presentation will make explicit the underlying goals below the choices that were made in each project regarding the “typology” they adopted.
