Prof. Glenn Most, “Philology as a Social Practice: Historical and Comparative Explorations in Scholarly Textual Procedures”


From the speaker: “In the coming years I shall be working increasingly on the historical and comparative study of scholarly textual procedures as these have developed in a variety of cultural traditions, including Chinese, Indian, Mesopotamian, Arabic, Jewish, and Greco-Roman. My talk will present some of the challenges and opportunities of this kind of research.”


Glenn Warren Most is professor of Classics at the Scuola Normale in Pisa. He has worked and taught at Yale, Tübingen, Heidelberg, Princeton, Siena, Michigan, Innsbruck and Chicago. In 1994, he was the first classicist to receive the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Preis of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.
