As the digital age has shaped our ways of viewing ourselves, society, and culture is has also reframed and revealed new perspectives on viewership and ritual. We invite proposals for an edited volume that seeks to explore the effects of this digital age on Medieval and Early modern studies. This collection of essays aims to engage in both the examination of medieval media, mediation, and technology from a theoretical framework. The second grouping of essays aims to explore how the digital humanities have shaped Medieval and Early Modern studies today.
We seek papers that explore these topics. Among others, we encourage submissions that are concerned with issues of technological and material manipulation, as well as mnemonic devices, perception, tech methodology, and pedagogy. Essays should be 5000-7000 words. Authors are responsible for securing copyrights to all images, diagrams, graphs, etc.
We welcome all aspects of Medieval and Early Modern studies (musicology, art history, history, literature, language, philosophy, science, religion, law, history of the church, etc.) Trans-European, visual culture, global medievalism, modern medievalism, and interdisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome.
Submissions: To apply, please submit two abstracts : 1 ) 400-500 words; and 2) about 100 words. a short biographical note of no more than 100 words, and your institutional affiliation (if any), to Katharine.d.Scherff@ttu.edu. Deadline extended 1 Sept 2021.
