AbstractThe sessions aim to connect scholars interested in the digital analysis of medieval text networks and intertextuality. They will focus on digital tools and approaches which can model or analyze those relationships between texts or parts of texts that typically characterize medieval legal, theological, or polemical texts. The sessions are intended as a forum to discuss current approaches and tools. This first half of a double session will focus on the digital detection of intertextuality, discussing extant tools and approaches to find and visualize shared topics, citation networks, and other overlap.
