Research and Publishing the Medieval Now

Friday 7 July 2017, 11.00AM to 18:30

Speaker(s): A Colloquium in Honour of Caroline Palmer

Recent trends in interdisciplinary paradigms and digital modes of publication have made traditional intellectual and material boundaries ever more fungible, even as highly specific knowledge concerning for example regional history or medieval texts and their manuscripts, retain their value as core data. Developing new paradigms in language not already saturated with nation-state assumptions is currently a field of considerable experimentation in medieval studies and an area of intensified political interest in anglophone and other cultures around the world. This colloquium’s papers discuss and exemplify contemporary research approaches in the areas of Literatures and Histories and Material Cultures in two sessions which, appropriately, have no fixed intellectual boundary between them.
