(e)Scripta at IMC Leeds 2019

The Scripta project and eScripta team will be represented at the International Medieval Congress in Leeds this year. Scripta is co-sponsoring a strand of three sessions on ‘Materiality in Series’, and two members of Scripta will be giving papers as part of a strand sponsored by Digital Medievalist. Details are given below. Of course these represent just a very small fraction of the many interesting papers and strands at the IMC, so we very much hope to see you at what looks like being some extremely productive discussions.
