Description

This panel explores developing and newly developed digital projects that provide innovative points of access to research and pedagogical resources for the field of medieval Italian studies. There is a particular focus on visualizations, including the digitization of manuscripts like the Franco-Italian Huon d’Auvergne, novel tools and techniques for the visualization and collection of research data such as mapping Dante’s Commedia, and enhanced digital editions of works like Petrarch’s Canzoniere that provides material access to philologically different forms of a canonical text. Attention is also given to the extra-canonical, including the first Italian authorial cookbook by Maestro Martino, that provides a vital point of historical context in the transition between the Middle Ages and Renaissance. This forum will aim to show how medieval studies centered on Italy can rise to the moment in embracing technological resources and collaboration between scholars, libraries, and institutions and craft projects that can spread far and wide to a new generational audience.
