Middle English Text Series (METS)

Preparation for print and digital publication of six volumes of medieval literary texts (13th to 15th centuries) and implementation of an updated digital interface to enhance and expand user access. (36 months)

The Middle English Text Series (METS) is now in its 29th year of providing affordable and open-access critical editions of medieval texts for researchers and students. Ninety-five volumes have been published as of fall 2019. This proposal requests funding to support the print and digital publication of 6 volumes, and implementation of a re-designed digital edition to enhance and expand user access, support, and interaction. The primary purpose of METS is to make available for scholarly use critical editions of the textual tradition of medieval Britain. The focus of this project is upon vernacular texts from the 13th to the early-16th centuries that move beyond the ‘canonical’ authors, expanding our understanding of and access to the multilingual and multicultural culture of a vibrant and global British Isles. With its digital and print editions, the series has a global reach and influence, with users from the U.K., France, Italy, and Germany to China, Korea, India, and Australia.
