Description

The recent proliferation of digital and digitized editions of medieval texts available online poses new questions about the forms, uses, and scholarly objectives of critical texts. For this session at Kalamazoo, we invite scholars and editors engaged in digital text projects to discuss new work in any of the following areas: editorial theory and practice in digital environments; intellectual, technical, and institutional challenges posed by born-digital textual projects (along with proposed solutions); and interpretive work on medieval literature that is made possible by the availability of digital text corpora.
