Manuscripts after Print (MaP): new AHRC-funded project starts

ATNU is proud to announce that 'Manuscripts after Print (MaP): Producing and Reading Books during Technological Change' has been funded by the AHRC and is about to begin. The project is led by Dr Aditi Nafde, lecturer in medieval literature at Newcastle University, and asks a very pertinent question: what happens to the production and readership of manuscripts after the invention of print? ATNU is one of the project partners and have cooperated with Aditi to develop the digital facet of the project. Later in its life, the project will publish a 'Hands-on Reading' app which will mix digital text and handwritting to further explore how old and new technologies live together, how we read now and how we might read in the future. The real work starts now: watch this space for more updates and announcements!
