Abstract

This session is associated with the project Medieval Publishing from c. 1000-1500, which attempts an account of how Latin authors in the West published their works. Our research hypothesis is that publication strategies were not a constant but were liable to change, and that different literary, social, institutional, political, and technical milieux fostered different approaches to publishing. The papers presented in this session discuss publishing in the 11th and 12th centuries and prospects for statistically-oriented inquiry.
