The Philological Conversations series fosters critical reflections on philological scholarship from a comparative and global perspective. It features scholarly dialogues, book discussions, and essays on the politics and ethics of philological and historical research. While the dialogue form gives voice to the persona often overlooked in academic research, the book discussions and essays encourage reflection beyond the conventional academic review. We welcome original contributions committed to rethinking and renewing the craft of philology. The series is curated by the editorial board of Philological Encounters. Contact: Islam Dayeh.
