CFP: A Panel Discussion on Digital Humanities and Medieval Italy
52nd International Congress on Medieval Studies
Western Michigan University
11-14 May, 2017
This panel proposes to explore developing and newly developed digital projects that provide innovative points of access to research and pedagogical resources for the field of medieval Italian studies. Particular focus on visualizations would be welcome, including the digitization of manuscripts and illustrations, novel tools and techniques for the visualization and collection of research data, and enhanced digital editions of works like Dante’s Commedia and Petrarch’s Canzoniere that provide unique visual and material perspectives on these canonical texts. This forum will aim to show how medieval studies centered on Italy can rise to the moment in embracing technological resources and collaboration between scholars, libraries, and institutions and craft projects that can spread far and wide to a new generational audience.
Those interested in submitting a paper proposal should send an abstract of 250 words by 15 September to Dr. Akash Kumar. Click here for more information on the International Congress on Medieval Studies.
