Costas Papadopoulos delivered an invited presentation at the Digital Humanities Colloquium at the University of Cologne (26 January 2022) discussing the potential but mostly the challenges that 3D scholarship has faced in the last few decades. He concluded his talk by presenting the concept of 3D scholarly editions, and explaining how it aligns with the work done for the PURE3D project, which is developing a national Dutch infrastructure to accommodate the development and preservation of 3D scholarship.
