This field brings together scholars from very different disciplines, asking them to develop new questions and to use unfamiliar methodologies. The problems which they address range from new approaches to understanding science as practiced in medieval culture, through the challenges of digital presentation of sources and research results, to the non-invasive analysis of manuscripts. But in all they are required to embrace the value of integrated interdisciplinary work, developing and exploiting new frameworks for technological and intellectual innovation. The Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies (IMEMS) and Durham University have developed a strong reputation over recent years for innovative research within this field. Drawing on the structural capacity for collaborative research provided by Durham’s Research Institutes, as well as the remarkable resources available in situ, notably the outstanding manuscript and early printed book collections in the University, Cathedral and Ushaw libraries, and the artefacts of the Oriental Museum, scholars are breaking disciplinary boundaries under the auspices of this new IMEMS research strand.
