Recording, Constructing, and Evaluating Authorship


Venue & accessibility info: Rudolf Wolf Room, Collegium Helveticum

This is a public event. Participation is free of charge and registration is not required.

The seminar is followed by a small reception.

In his lecture, Mario Biagioli will present a paper on the history and function of the curriculum vitae. The paper deals not with the summary of relevant professional experiences people compile when applying for specific positions, commonly referred to as a resume, but rather to the closely related yet distinct genre adopted by academics to comprehensively represent the various forms of work they undertake as faculty—including publications, teaching, and service. The curriculum vitae is a crucial tool for job-seeking and also serves as a primary means of ongoing evaluation for academics by their institutions.
