Publication: ‘Tales of Medieval Dublin’, (eds) Sparky Bonner and Cherie N. Peters

Tales of Medieval Dublin
Sparky Booker & Cherie N. Peters, editors

 Walking through Dublin Castle or along the surviving medieval city walls, you can see only glimpses of what it would have been like to live in the city centuries ago. Tales of medieval Dublin provides a chance for modern audiences to meet the Irish, Norse and English men and women who lived in this colourful medieval city, and to hear their fascinating stories. While providing the most up-to-date research, these fourteen tales are written to appeal to anyone interested in the city’s past. They span almost 1,000 years of Dublin’s history and trace the lives of warriors, churchmen, queens, bards and barons, as well as those individuals who are so often ignored in the historical record, like housewives, tax collectors, masons, lawyers, notaries, peasants and slaves. This volume serves both as a history of the medieval city, and as a window into the day-to-day lives of the men and women who lived there.

 NOW AVAILABLE. 256pp; colour illustrations.

Publication: New Technologies and Renaissance Studies (eds) William R. Bowen & Raymond G. Siemems

New Technologies and Renaissance Studies, edited by William R. Bowen and Raymond G. Siemems, is now available in
print (http://acmrs.org/publications/mrts/renstu.html) and online (http://www.itergateway.org/mrts.htm#ntmrs). The volume is the first in a new series entitled, New Technologies in Medieval and Renaissance Studies.

As Willard McCarty so rightly notes in the opening article to this volume, “wherever one looks, computing seems to be at or near the epicentres of disturbance.” Most certainly, near the forefront of any examination of disciplinary pursuits in the academy today, among the many and very important issues being addressed one will inevitably end the role of computing and its integration into, and perhaps revolutionizing of, central methodological approaches. Published by Iter and the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, the series New Technologies in Medieval and Renaissance Studies addresses this context from both broad and narrow perspectives, with anticipated discussions rooted in literature, art history, musicology, culture, and more in the medieval and Renaissance periods. Articles in this volume cover such topics as the digital reconstruction and re-presentation of archival materials, the adaptation of text encoding systems to address the concerns of manuscript studies, the pedagogical opportunities presented by the electronic medium, and well beyond.

New online journal: “Historische Archäologie”

In spring 2009 the online journal “Historische Archäologie” was introduced to offer a new and open access medium on research in the field of Historical Archaeology.

The online journal wishes explicitly to present research and analysis from the late medieval to the modern period in all its aspects. Geographically the focus lies in German speaking Europe. However, contributions from other countries are also most welcome. The journal´s time frame ranges from the 14th/15th century until today and wishes to offer young scientists and established colleagues an opportunity to present their research. This does not primarily mean data structure reports, but rather asks for well-founded, methodologically or theoretically orientated papers, which are likely to be discussed in professional circles.

The journal also wishes to build a bridge to eastern Central Europe, to Scandinavia and to Great Britain. It is repeatedly said with regret that there is hardly any professional interchange in archaeology between English and German-speaking colleagues due to the language barrier. This is why we wish to publish articles either in English or at the very least with a detailed English summary. Only in this way can we draw international attention to research from this language area and take part in international discussion. Papers will be published with colour illustrations and put online rather quickly, to draw upon the advantages of online publishing.

Up to now German-speaking Europe had no methodological or theoretical forum for post-medieval themes. This gap is now filled. The bi-lingual journal (German / English) was created by an editorial team consisting of Prof. Dr. Ulrich Müller (University of Kiel), Prof. Dr. Jörn Staecker (University of Tübingen), Prof. Dr. Claudia Theune-Vogt and Dr. Natascha Mehler (both University of Vienna) and can be found at the website www.histarch.org
