Keynote speaker: Professor Michael Cronin (Dublin City University)
Interview: Basque writer Kirmen Uribe in conversation with Ned Thomas
Emendation has become a dirty word in the study of medieval texts. Especially when modified by "speculative." Best Text editors following on the work of Joseph Bédier reject virtually all emendation as ahistorical and despite a century of advances in textual criticism, the extended controversies regarding George T. Kane and E. Talbot Donaldson's editions of Piers Plowman bear witness to the persistent unease brought on by "speculation." This panel invites papers that rethink the nature of emendation in the broadest terms. We hope that papers will use a historical crux--be it textual, bibliographic or hermeneutic--to think about wider issues relating to the future of the study of medieval culture.
Keynote Addresses: Professor Christopher Fynsk (University of Aberdeen) and Professor Elizabeth Rottenberg (DePaul University)
Linda Hutcheon and J. Edward Chamberlin Lecture in Literary Theory: Professor Eric Cazdyn (University of Toronto)
