Line-up for Leeds International Medieval Congress 2017...

The Models of Authority team and DigiPal are delighted to announce that between us we are sponsoring five sessions at the International Medieval Congress at Leeds next year (Monday 3rd July to Thursday 6th July 2017). Subjects covered will include diplomatic, palaeography, Scottish charters, Digital Humanities, the implications of the use of digital surrogates and IIIF. Almost a mini conference in itself! But enough preamble, listed below are the sessions and their respective papers.

We very much look forward to seeing you at some or (for inveterate set collectors) even all of them.
