Edition von autobiographischen Schriften und Zeugnissen zur Biographie
The volume contains the papers on individual authors and specific problems delivered at the conference of the German Studies Work Group on the Scholarly Editing of Texts in Weimar, where the conference topic was the editing of autobiographic writings and biographic testimonies. Germanists and historians from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Italy and France presented state-of-play reports on ongoing edition work and discussed theoretical and genre-related problems of scholarly editing. There thus emerges a collection mirroring the present level of interdisciplinary theoretical reflection on the editing of relevant text genres and providing information on the specific problems involved in dealing with specific authors and specific genres. The volume also contains extensive information on the practical progress being made in various ongoing historical-critical editions of diaries, correspondence and autobiographic testimonies.
