Begins on: Thursday 15 November 2018.
Ends on: Saturday 17 November 2018.
Location: Praha
In an important sense, this year?s twofold theme follows up on the agenda of ESTS 2017 (“Editorial Degrees of Intervention”): firstly, by taking the idea of editorial interventions down the imaginary cline towards its far end where editors become authors, and secondly, to strike a thematic balance, by proposing to look into various aspects of a contrastive configuration – of texts edited by their authors. What conditions – such as pressures of ideology, historical-cultural context, urge to interpret or requirements of authenticity – turn editors into authors? And how do we tell the editors – with their complex duties of a scribe, a compiler, a commentator – from the authors? How does this “crossover” bear on these newly-born authors? editorial practices? What circumstances bring authors to start editing their own texts? What are the principal features of this type of editorial process and its final product?
