This series of round tables, within the framework of LECTIO, is intended as a 'laboratory' to explore, in an experimental way, as it were, the methodological potentialities and limits of textual criticism and text editing. This will not only be done in an interdisciplinary perspective, but also in a transversal one, in terms of language areas and time periods.
Each round table tackles a different topic, which can be of interest not only to editors, but also to anyone interested in texts in general. Several specialists, each with a different background, have been invited to expose their views on the topic, highlighting the problematic points and methodological issues. An open discussion will then follow, enabling the emergence of new ideas.
These round tables are open to every 'lover of the text'. Everyone is cordially invited to reflect on the proposed topics and to participate in the creation of new tracks for tomorrow's scholarship.
