Abstract

With the increase in the availability of digital manuscripts and artefacts over the past twenty years, the ways in which we encounter the medieval has changed and will continue to change. The proliferation of digital archives online, via social media, within emerging digital editions, and 3D and Virtual Reality are dissolving old boundaries of custody and access. This session investigates the ambiguous borders of the materiality of medieval manuscripts and the changing borders of our digital and virtual encounters with the medieval, from the analogue to the immersive.
