The Book Unbound
Manuscript Studies and Editorial Theory for the 21st Century Twenty-ninth
Medieval Workshop at Green College, UBC
Sept. 17-18, 1999

"The Book Unbound" is a two-day workshop which will bring together new
theories and technologies with old objects of study. Taking the medieval
manuscript book as its focus, it will gather together scholars from Canada,
the US, and the UK, who are engaged in the re-evaluation of traditional
approaches to, and conclusions about, medieval books and the cultural texts
they contain literary, theatrical, historical, and musical.

As the conference title aims to suggest, the workshop will be a showcase
for scholars who are engaged in redefining editorial methods,ideas about
authorship and text, and ways of representing and reproducing medieval
texts. As we move into a new era, new technologies are opening avenues for
exploration which look, not just forward into the new millennium, but also
backward, offering new ways to understand what has gone before.
