Elaine Treharne: "Momentary Presence and Manuscript Permanence in Digital Space"
Elaine Treharne is Roberta Bowman Denning Professor of Humanities at Stanford University. She is the author of Living Through Conquest: The Politics of Early English, 1020 to 1220 and A Very Short Introduction to Medieval Literature and editor of Old and Middle English: An Anthology (now moving into its fourth edition), among numerous other publications in the areas of medieval studies, manuscript studies, and English literature.
