Juniors Conference "Editors at Work - Experiences and Problems with Neo-Latin Texts"

The rise of 'Meta-Neo-Latin Studies', which reflect the theoretical premises and the methodology of this field of research, is one of the most noteworthy recent developments in Neo-Latin studies. In his important article (2007) on the topic, Toon van Hal called for internal reflection within the field of Neo-Latin studies and the formulation of its own methodological recommendations, lest it 'grow into a giant with feet of clay'. Van Hal argued that self-reflection on its methodologies would give the field more objectivity.
