The Research Group on Manuscript Evidence, in keeping with the MMLA conference’s theme of “Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgängers,” is sponsoring panels on duality in manuscripts, broadly conceived.  Possible senses of duality include, strictly by way of example, textual variants, recensions, and copies; it also includes more figurative senses of duality like the dialectic between text and marginal glosses.  We invite all approaches—including hermeneutical, textual, art historical, codicological, and paleographical—as well as all time periods.  Despite the RGME’s medieval focus, all proposals that consider the material evidence contained in handwritten documents are warmly welcomed.
