‘The moving word: French medieval manuscripts in Cambridge’ is a product of a collaboration between the AHRC-funded research project ‘Medieval Francophone Literary Culture Outside France‘ (MFLCOF) and Cambridge University Library.
MFLCOF is a three-year research project based at King ‘s College London, the University of Cambridge, and University College London and directed by Professor Simon Gaunt with the collaboration of Professor Bill Burgwinkle (Cambridge), Dr Jane Gilbert (UCL), Dr Paul Vetch (KCL), Dr Nicola Morato (Cambridge and Liège), Dr Dirk Schoenaers (UCL) and David Murray (KCL). It is generously supported by an Arts and Humanities Research Council research grant.
