José Saramago's History of the Siege of Lisbon (1989) is structured around a transgressive proofreader who alters the course of history with the insertion of the word "not" in a historical text.

Medievalists must often reconstruct the nature of their objects and audiences in order to produce narratives on visual and literary interactions between images, texts, and their communities. Through excavations, primary texts, and artifacts, cultures of reception are articulated and experiences with objects and texts are interpolated.
