Digital Premodern 2-day symposium, May 2–3


This year’s medieval spring symposium on the Digital Premodern (part of a DHI-funded research cluster, and in coordination with the Mellon Digital Cultures Initiative) will be a double-header, taking place Saturday May 2 and Sunday May 3, approximately 9–5 each day.

On Saturday, in Voorhies 126, we’ll have “Codex to Code”: three distinguished medievalists (Ruth Evans, William Kuskin, and Alexandra Gillespie) presenting on their work at the intersection of book history and digital media and technologies, each with a respondent, plus a lunch session for all in attendance (if you rsvp!) with lightning talks on medieval elements in video games.

Sunday is the IMMERSe symposium “Medievalism and Video Games,” organized by Amanda Phillips, with a medievalist (Daniel Kline) as keynote speaker and papers by scholars from all over the country as well as a number of local participants. This will take place in the ModLab, Cruess Hall 234.

Poster and more details coming soon! We hope to see many of you at some or all of these events.
