I'm excited to share that the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (ACMRS) has officially accepted Joey McMullen's and my volume, The Legacy of Boethius in Medieval England: The Consolation and its Afterlives, which emerged from a conference we held at Harvard in 2014.
Featuring essays by Susan Irvine (University College London), Nicole Guenther Discenza (University of South Florida), Paul E. Szarmach (University of California, Berkeley), Haruko Momma (New York University), Hilary Fox (Wayne State University), me, Ann Astell (University of Notre Dame), Eleanor Johnson (Columbia University), Joey, Jonathan Stavsky (Hebrew University of Jerusalem), Anthony Cirilla (Saint Louis University), and Taylor Cowdery (Harvard University--though soon to be University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill), this volume presents the first unified assessment of Boethius's medieval English legacy.
Thanks to Tom Birkett of The World-Tree Project for this warm write-up of Digital Britain, which begins:
"Easter weekend was a promising date for a conference on the theme of renewal (or at least reconsideration) of the field of medieval literature. Hosted by Harvard University’s English Department and exploring new approaches to the early Middle Ages, ‘Digital Britain’ provided a perfect opportunity for the World-Tree Project to report on our method of community collection, and to enlist the advice of some of the leading proponents of digital medievalism."
Here's the program:
