Abstract

These sessions seek to explore the links between Time and History in the Middle Ages. While scholarship on the genres and forms of medieval history-writing has recognised the importance of time in the format and organisation of texts, few studies have explored in detail the mechanics of how authors and illustrators engaged with theories of time. This is part of two sessions which follow on from topics discussed and collaborations built during previous IMC strands in 2017 on ‘Visualising History in Medieval Manuscripts’ (one session) and in 2018 on the science manual Durham, Dean and Chapter Library, MS Hunter 100 (four sessions). It is hoped that they will provide a forum for further discussion and debate, and lead to the eventual establishment of a research network, which will be used as the basis for planned applications for future research grant funding.
Both sessions have respondents, designed to discuss the future aims of the Time and History project, and maximise time for discussion and analysis.
