CFP open now, with submissions due June 1, for the Medieval Academy of America's 2023 Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.
With the aim of identifying and reconstructing broken books, the field of Fragmentology has adopted digital tools and shared virtual workspaces. What data do we gather and what stories do we tell with this emerging field of research? How are librarians, curators, collectors, historians, musicologists, textual scholars, students, and digital humanists collaborating and producing new knowledge? How do these bits of books intersect with nationality and identity, and how do these constructs impact the scholarly work of identifying and reconstructing manuscripts? This session will be hosted onsite at the Library of Congress, and although it is not limited to any geographical scope, new research on DC-area collections of medieval manuscript fragments is especially welcome.
Moderator: Lisa Fagin Davis (Medieval Academy of America)
