Text, Image and the Digital Research Environment : 
Parker Library-Keio EIRI Conference on
Medieval Manuscripts and Printed Book

Friday 9 September 2011
Parker Library, Corpus Christi College, Cambridge

The monumental Parker on the Web project has now been up and running for several years, with constant updates and improvements. The Parker Library and the EIRI Project at Keio University (Tokyo) are co-organising a one-day conference focusing on new and future advances in digitisation and digitial resources and on the ways in which they are creating new research environments for medieval manuscripts and rare books.

Papers will range from individual research topics to institutional projects, and speakers will include: Benjamin L. Albritton (Stanford University) on an interoperable repository model for medieval manuscripts; James Cummings (University of Oxford) on new developments in markup language and textual encoding; Joanna Fronska (The British Library) on the structure, goals and challenge of the Digital Catalogue of Illuminated Manuscripts (using the Royal collection as a case study); Giles Bergel (Merton College, Oxford) on the material text in an age of digital reproduction; Grant Young and Huw Jones (Cambridge University Library) on the technical infrastructure being developed within the Foundations digital library project; Kiyoko Myojo (Saitama University) on theoretical aspects of the influence of digitization on modern literary studies; Peter Stokes (King’s College, London) on digital resource for medieval palaeography; Suzanne Paul (Parker Library) on Parker on the Web; and Satoko Tokunaga (Keio University/Corpus Christi College, Cambridge) on digital bibliography and incunabula studies.

A special exhibition of medieval manuscripts and early books will be held in the newly-refurnished Parker Library. Delegates will have ample opportunity to use the manuscripts of Parker Library. The full programme will be announced in June on this conference website. If you would like to attend, please return the Registration Form (which is available on the “Registration” page of this website) and the registration fee (£20; £15 for students) by 9 August to the Parker Library.
