When media revolutions occur within in a predominately manuscript culture—as in Song dynasty China, or Carolingian Europe—how do understandings of writing and genre also change? How can we gauge the awareness of all these changes among contemporaries? And how can historians guard against imposing their own categories on the texts of the medieval past? In this exchange, two historians of these two different cultures reflect on what they have learned from one another’s work, and on these larger questions.
