CONGRESS CANCELED The Digital Middle Ages in Ireland and Beyond (A Roundtable)

Medieval Institute, Western Michigan University

Description

This session discusses how scholars and students can use digital technologies to achieve a more nuanced understanding of medieval culture. At ICMS in 2019 ASIMS sponsored the very successful Digital Castles roundtable. Particularly enlightening discussion during this session centered on the ways we can use the digital humanities to engage students in our work as scholars. Consequently, we are broadening the scope and appeal of digital humanities. This panel considers innovative approaches towards better understanding, through digital means, the material culture of medieval Ireland. We particularly emphasize how digital projects can be accomplished on a budget and at a distance from the geographic area of study. Maire Johnson
