The Book Unbound

I saw this posted on another list and thought some on this one would be interested.

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
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.

The conference program, registration information, and
local information
