Description

These panels are in honor of the extraordinary contributions of Kathryn Kerby-Fulton to the study of English vernacular literatures and their manuscript traditions, upon the event of her retirement. Since the beginning of her career, Kathryn’s work has challenged linguistic and disciplinary divides, spanning vernacular and Latin intellectual traditions, reading literary and visual evidence, and elucidating the religious and political implications of Middle English texts. Kathryn’s work has made previously inaccessible intellectual and material traditions widely available to scholars of Middle English literature. This is particularly true of her sustained focus on English literary manuscript culture, which has helped to establish the material text as a worthy subject of scholarly inquiry, uncovering critical, formal, and cultural significance in the consideration of oft-neglected features of a codex--readers’ annotations, illustrations, emendations, linguistic shifts. This panel engages Kathryn’s sustained focus on material traditions of Middle English texts and their readers.
