Due to the material turn in the humanities and the increasing attention to manuscript materiality in textual scholarship, many students and scholars of ancient texts now find themselves in a somewhat awkward position: they were never trained to work with manuscripts. In this talk we present our new book project, "Working with Manuscripts: A Guide," under contract with Yale University Press. Drawing on our own experiences (and mistakes), we aim to put together a practical guide to manuscript work that also takes seriously the ethical challenges and legal requirements of working with manuscripts.
