In this roundtable, scholars of manuscripts, print, and digital media will discuss how contemporary forms of textuality intersect with, duplicate, extend, or draw on manuscript technologies. Panelists seek to push the discussion beyond traditional notions of supersession or remediation to consider the relevance of past textual practices in our analyses of emergent ones.


Subjects:

  • General Literature – Electronic Technology (Teaching, Research, and Theory)

  • General Literature – History of the Book, Reception Theory, Comparison with Other Media, and Performance
