PERFORMANCE AND THE PAGE: EXPLORING MANUSCRIPT PRODUCTION AND INTERPRETATIONS INTERNATIONAL MEDIEVAL CONGRESS LEEDS, UK 12 - 15 JULY 2010 CALL FOR PAPERS http://www.leeds.ac.uk/ims/imc/
This interdisciplinary session will consider the metaphorical journey undertaken by all those involved in manuscript production and interpretation. From manuscript design to current presentation and preservation, from the conception of a work to its reception today, this session seeks to explore how manuscript layout and design influence (and are influenced by) reception, past and present. Papers are invited on all aspects of "performance and the page", and could include: --Issues of manuscript interpretation (medieval and/or contemporary) --Issues of manuscript design --Reconstruction of manuscript "texts" (including music) --Aural performance of manuscript "texts" (including music) --The visual impact of the manuscript page --Presentation of manuscripts and their contents --The influence of media (e.g. printing, digitisation) on the interpretation of manuscript contents --The impact of manuscript digitisation on reception --Reader manipulation through manuscript layout and design --The manuscript portrayal of the author(s) --Editing processes (both medieval and contemporary) --The roles of some or all of those involved in manuscript production and transmission, from author to 21st-century reader. --Relations between "text" and image The conference theme for 2010 is "travel and exploration", and papers should address this theme in some way. Please send proposals of 200 words before 8th Aug 2009 to: K.Maxwell at music.gla.ac.uk
