Session 1425: Building a Network for Digitally Editing Queens' Acts: A Round Table Discussion

Wednesday 5 July 2023, 19.00-20.00

Sponsor:Royal Studies Network
Organiser:Ana Maria S. A. Rodrigues, Centro de História, Universidade de Lisboa
Moderator/Chair:Lledó Ruiz Domingo, Departamento de Historia Medieval y Ciencias y Técnicas Historiográficas, Universidad de Valencia

Though research on queenship has progressed immensely in the last decades, there are still some areas of the queens' activities that are less well known because of the fragmentary and dispersed nature of the documentation concerning them. Several research projects - Queens' Resources, French Queens' Testaments, CORREGAM, ERA - have therefore been launched recently to collect, digitally edit, and study such documents: either those promulgated by the queens themselves or those addressed to them. The aim of this round table discussion is to share and discuss these experiences, in order to start building a network for digitally editing European Queens' Acts in a co-operative and pan-European project.

Participants include Paula Del Val Vales (University of Lincoln), Inês Olaia (Universidade de Lisboa), Diana Pelaz Flores (Universidad de Santiago de Compostela), Miriam Shadis (Ohio University), Manuela Santos Silva (Universidade de Lisboa), and Elena Woodacre (University of Winchester).
