medieval studies

This blog post is based off of the idea of “change logs” in Jentery Sayers “Tinker-Centric Pedagogy in Literature and Language Classrooms.” I'm not following the prompt he gives in his article. However, I do wish to "chronicle specific moments in the process when the shape of an idea is notably altered," as he puts it.¹ I want to use this post as a way of "versioning" my own thoughts on digital research, which I haven't really done thus far in my studies. I’m writing it like a TEI changelog because I’m a big ol’ nerd.

I started off this unit wanting to work on a Neatline exhibit for the ECDA, with the intent of working it into my later final project. But the recent Will Noel lecture inspired me to “get medieval” as it were, and work with a pre-modern text. My first problem arose when I tried to decide whether I should bother geo-rectifying a map. I mean, who would want to geo-rectify this?
