An Archive of Early Middle English

Preparation for electronic publication of two Early Middle English manuscripts (c. 1100 - 1350) and the beginning of work on an electronic edition of a third manuscript. (36 months)

We seek NEH support to create an Archive of Early Middle English (AEME). First, we will produce electronic editions of 3 key Early Middle English manuscripts containing transcriptions of the texts with encoded information on names, places, intertextual features, and philological, paleographical and material features. The editions will be searchable and easily adaptable to varied forms of digital analysis. Digital editing permits a more dynamic edition than print; it can be interactive, serve multiple audiences, be extended by other scholars, and facilitate many types of analysis, visualization, and comparison. AEME will significantly widen access to Early Middle English texts and manuscripts for a range of people who, due to geography, finances, or lack of training, face insufficient access. AEME will open new windows on Early Middle English, enable re-assessment of its place in literary history and produce new opportunities for drawing it into larger conversations in the humanities.
