The version of a cultural object is identified, articulated, and analysed through diverse mechanisms in different fields of study. The study of versions allows for the investigation of the creative processes behind the conception of the object, a closer inspection of the socio-political contexts that affect it, and may even provide the means to investigate the provenance and the object’s circulation. The publication brings together contributions for scholars from different research areas that work with different forms of media, including text, image, and sound. The term “versioning” is considered in the broadest sense; while the understanding of versions differ in disciplines, this volume will explore the convergences and variances in its conception. The conversation will highlight the range and depth of existing studies and provide an inter-disciplinary understanding of the term.
The volume is based on a series of presentations held at the symposium „Versioning Cultural Objects (VCO)“, Maynooth University.
