What's a Digital Medievalist?

“My personal business card says I’m a Digital Medievalist. | It’s the best way to describe my training, my occupation, and my interests. | I am trained as a medievalist. I started studying medieval English literature as an undergraduate, and am currently completing a doctoral dissertation in Medieval English and Celtic literatures (I’m writing about fairies, really). Though my academic training predisposes me to work in the realm of codices and manuscripts, my professional life has frequently been in the silicon realm….The combination of digital technology and medieval studies isn’t as unusual as you might think. We medievalists are surprisingly technologically savvy; there’s a lot you can do with a scanner, some manuscripts and a computer.” Lisa SpangenbergWhat’s a Digital Medievalist?Digital Medievalist)
