Carol Symes, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Symes calls for a re-evaluation of the ways that performance and various forms of popular literacy shaped documentary practices and their meanings between the 11th and 13th centuries.  Her aim is to expand our understanding of the ways that medieval social and political actors exercised agency and participated in the making of public knowledge.
