2. Methods and Tools for Reuniting Manuscript Fragments (A Roundtable)
The medieval manuscript roll was remarkably versatile. Playing host to a variety of genres, the roll format was an omnipresent feature of the textual landscape throughout the Middle Ages. Though its popularity is often attributed to its portability or economical construction, scholars have also noted relationships between its form and the genres it contains. For example, the inverted images of Exultet rolls were visible to onlookers as the texts were read, while the continuous length of a roll could emphasise the continuous history of a chronicle or genealogy. At the same time, however, rolls contain many texts not obviously connected to their format: poetry, recipes, devotional texts, charms, poetry, and even chiromancy.
CFP FOR AN EDITED COLLECTION:
Architectural Representation in the European Middle Ages
Edited by Hannah Bailey, Karl Kinsella, and Daniel Thomas
The architectural remnants of the Middle Ages—from castles and cathedrals to village churches—provide many people’s first point of contact with the medieval period and its culture. Such concrete survivals provide a direct link to the material experience of medieval people. At the same time, exploring the ways in which architecture was conceptualized and depicted can contribute to our understanding of the ideological and imaginative worldview of the period.
Twenty-seven years ago, Approaches to Teaching Medieval English Drama, edited by Richard K. Emmerson, presented possibilities for engaging students in the literary, theoretical, historical, and performative explorations of the field. Scholarship in the intervening decades has expanded these approaches and introduced new ones. Manuscript digitization, 3-D modeling of medieval cities, and online databases provide research and instructional opportunities far beyond those available in 1990. Research on Teaching and Learning and rhetorical pedagogies have demonstrated the importance of educational research and strong theoretical approaches. The panel welcomes theoretical and practical discussions of teaching all pre-modern drama.
