Medieval Digital Humanities at Leeds 2017

Medieval Digital Humanities at Leeds 2017

It’s nearly IMC Leeds time again! I will be there at the University of Leeds on July 3-6, along with approximately 2000 other medievalists. This year I am continuing in my tradition of compiling digital humanities, digitally inflected, and DH-adjacent sessions, papers, and activities into one handy list. The total so far is 46 that are either fully within this definition of digital or include at least one paper that is. (Compare this list and total with the 36 from 2015 [I didn’t get a chance to make a list for 2016].)

The conference indexes individual papers with the category “Computing in Medieval Studies,” as determined by the presenter. Papers under that list are shown in blue. Additional papers and sessions below are ones I added.

The list includes the session number, room location, session title, paper title(s) and speaker(s). The session title is also a link to the conference website’s description of the session with further information. I will also add speakers’ Twitter handles as requested.

The session number is structured like #s38 as a reminder that if you are tweeting during a session, you should use both the conference hashtag (#imc2017) AND the session hashtag (e.g. #s538). Following this protocol helps people follow particular sessions remotely.

The conference website with the full pdf of sessions is available here. Tweet along with @IMC_Leeds using the hashtag #imc2017 [not #imc17]. IMC has a social media policy [here], so give it a look before heading to the conference. Dorothy Kim’s #MedievalTwitter post from In the Middle from a few years ago is still useful (available here).

See you in Leeds in in a few weeks!

I am certain there are papers and sessions that I missed, and there may be a name misspelling in there. Please leave a comment with a correction, an addition, or a removal.
