Sponsored by Digital Philology: A Journal of Medieval Cultures
Organized by Albert Lloret (University of Massachusetts Amherst) and Jeanette Patterson (Binghamton University, SUNY)
The prevalent use of digital tools and online environments to edit medieval texts is resulting in a myriad of projects in which unique solutions are deployed to offer optimal representations of very different textual objects. Single manuscripts, library collections, authorial corpora, and works preserved in several witnesses, for instance, all beg for different editorial and archival approaches. The possibilities for study and representation, in addition, are multiplied not only by the technologies employed or designed ad hoc for each project, but also by the scholars’ ideas on the very nature of what is being studied. We invite paper submissions that reflect on the theory, developments, and challenges of editing and archiving medieval texts, including, but not limited to:
•theories of digital edition.
•the making of digital editions.
•technologies employed in the making of digital archives.
•examples of digital editions and archives.
