Scholarly focus

During this two day conference, we will explore the use of digital resources in teaching and research in the Middle Ages.

We especially encourage submissions on the current state of the art in digital studies, on teaching and curricula matters, and on recent new and expected future developments in the field. Topics may include but are not limited to:

  • translation and dictionary projects
  • digital projects in the visual and performance arts (material culture, image annotation tools, paratextual information, etc.)
  • text corpora (creation of a corpus, search systems, etc.)
  • encoding of medieval manuscripts and printed texts (use of XML, TEI and extensions of these protocols)
  • management and preservation of digital resources
  • information design and modeling
  • the cultural impact of the new media
  • software studies
  • the role of digital humanities in academic curricula
  • funding and sustainability of long-term projects

This conference is co-sponsored by the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. For information about the conference, including submissions, registration and accommodation.
