Medieval Studies | Medieval Manuscripts
M600 | 25637 | H. Wayne Storey

This year's seminar concentrates on the relationship among medieval
manuscripts, early printed editions and modern editorial techniques in
national traditions and examines ways of reading and using manuscripts that
are more consonant with the mechanisms and cultural aspects of manuscript
production. Topics will include the evaluation of modern editions, the
reevaluation of the editorial process from manuscript to incunabula and 16th-
c editions, the history of and recent debates in editorial theory and techniques
in national traditions, the role of codicology and manuscript description in the
identification and assessment of textual sources.
