Medieval Digital Humanities at Leeds 2019

Shortcuts to: Monday | Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday

It’s IMC Leeds time again! Thousands of medievalists are at the University of Leeds on July 1-4, and 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 a whopping 63 sessions that include at least one digital/computing presentation. (Compare this list and total with the 41 from 2018, 46 from 2017 and 36 from 2015.)

The conference indexes individual papers with the index term “Computing in Medieval Studies,” as determined by the presenter. Papers under that list are shown in blue. I have also included sessions in the conference strand “Manuscripts – Digital and Science.” Additional papers and sessions below are ones I added. Since I am not going to the conference this year, I don’t have the physical program and had to rely on the conference database to search for things, so this year’s list may be more skewed to sessions that officially tagged themselves as “Computing”, fyi.

The list includes the session number, 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 #s138 as a reminder that if you are tweeting during a session, you should use both the conference hashtag (#imc2019) AND the session hashtag (e.g. #s538). Following this protocol helps people follow particular sessions remotely.

The conference website with the full list of sessions is available here. Tweet along with @IMC_Leeds using the hashtag #imc2019. IMC has a social media policy [here], so give it a look before heading to the conference.

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