Past Research Groups

The Digital Premodern

Faculty Coordinators: Matthew Vernon (English) and Claire Waters (English)

This 2014-15 research cluster, funded by the Davis Humanities Institute,, brought together scholars whose work focuses on the classical, medieval, and early-modern periods to consider how digital approaches have influenced the study of early literatures and cultures, and what both areas might learn from each other. The cluster sponsored several speakers over the course of the year and hosted a one-day symposium on May 2, 2015, featuring speakers from the University of Toronto, the University of Colorado at Boulder, and Washington University in St. Louis.
