The focus of this year's Summer School Edition Practices/Editionspraktiken is the examination of editorial practices, i.e., procedures of analogue and digital text edition, in relation to text and manuscript corpora from different epochs and manuscript cultures. The programme includes expert lectures and workshops with editors and edition scholars. On the basis of selected editions, they will provide insights into the handling of original texts, text versions and variants, the conception of apparatuses, commentaries, and indices, and will use concrete, implementation-oriented examples to introduce the procedures of edition practice in relation to different subject areas. In addition to this series of specialist contributions, two on-site visits to Berlin libraries and archives are planned in order to gain insight into material and manuscript collections and to deepen the discussion on different editing techniques using concrete documents and materials. The Summer School is directed at editors, philologists and edition scholars who are currently working on an edition project or on methodological questions of edition practices/edition philology in the context of a doctoral or postdoctoral project and invites them to present their editorial work during the two-week course and to discuss it with experienced colleagues.
