Description

Among questions this session might address are:

1. How should we approach the manuscripts? Should we prioritize the manuscript itself (its history, its construction, its material aspect) over the text it contains, or the reverse?

2. To what extent have recent discoveries concerning Chaucer and his scribes altered the way we research, edit and read Chaucerian texts?

3. How do digital methods alter the terrain of editing and reading?

4. Can we crowd-source editions? Is the concept of a ‘crowd-sourced edition’ a nonsense?

We welcome also reports from editorial projects addressing Chaucerian texts.One of the most healthy aspects of recent work on Chaucerian manuscripts is the diversity of opinion about methodologies and possibilities. We would like this session to reflect this diversity.
