Textuality and Manuscript Transmission

As is usual at the Saga Conference, one strand concerns itself with manuscript transmission, and offers a platform for discussion of current research in the areas of text philology and transmission history. Contributions which focus on the analysis of manuscript material in relation to the conference theme, sagas and space, are especially relevant. One instance of such a focus would be the significance of spatial arrangement in medieval and early modern manuscripts, but there are also many other possibilities.
