Description

This session will focus on the challenges and opportunies opened up by the digital turn. Editions may now take many forms beside traditional print, ranging from large online collections of unmediated manuscript images to sophisticated and complex editions of single manuscripts. At the same time, new life is being given to live performances of medieval texts through their appearance on YouTube, in tablets and in apps, and there have been notable experiments with games based (albeit loosely) on medieval texts. Again, while our focus is on the Canterbury Tales and Chaucer we invite papers exploring these questions in relation to any medieval text.
