The Executive Board of Digital Medievalist is pleased to announce the CFP for the following Digital Medievalist Sponsored Session at the 54th International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, May 9-12, 2019:


Digital methodologies and tools are commonly used among medievalists working in a variety of disciplines; less common, however, is the application of these methodologies and tools to cross-disciplinary scholarship. This session will consider 1) the role that digital projects play in reaching across disciplinary boundaries in medieval studies, 2) best practices for cross-disciplinary digital and computational research, and 3) examples of the success and failure of such research. For example, proposals may consider the use of stylometrics in historical source criticism, the use of social network analysis in literary studies, or probe manuscript datasets for evidence in support of liturgical, literary, historical, and art historical research. Our goal is to demonstrate how the development and application of digital tools, methods, and formats can enable and facilitate the interdisciplinary and collaborative research of experts and specialists across their respective subdisciplines in order to produce, provide, and openly share better insights and new knowledge with scholars and the wider public alike.


Please send abstracts (ca. 250 words) and the ICMS Participant Information Form* to Lynn Ransom at Deadline is September 15, 2018.
