Film and media adaptations have frequently projected an alternate cinematic world on screen that re-imagines the past and future. Movies (Blade Runner, The Quiet American), TV shows (Sherlock, Agent Carter), and digital ‘new media’ series—increasingly streamed and ‘binge watched’ on Netflix (House of Cards) and Amazon (The Man in the High Castle)—have been inspired by a variety of fiction novels, short stories, plays, comics, graphic novels, and historical works of nonfiction, memoirs (Bridge of Spies) or documentary (Jazz on a Summer’s Day) cine-essays that mediate and reframe history to portray an alternate worldview which re-imagines the past and anticipates a vision of future events.

This session seeks papers about electronic editions of medieval and early modern texts in both scholarship and teaching. How can such texts be best executed and then distributed? What information and features should they provide for readers? Do they replace hands-on study of manuscripts, or do they provoke more manuscript tourism? And how can such texts be used in research and also to bring textual studies into the medieval or early modern classroom?

If the post-9/11 moment associated terror with region and religion, how have events—Katrina and Ferguson, the Great Recession and Greek austerity, climate change and uprisings—mutated our understanding of the term? Can terror be a useful model for thinking through racialized and gendered violence, normalized extremism, and neoliberal policies?

Oral narratives are an integral part of our cultural learning process, allowing people to interconnect with past and future generations through shared experience; however, due to shame, fear, guilt, etc., that oral tradition is sometimes disrupted, leading to a fractured narrative that withholds crucial information from future generations.
