It won the 2001 Beatrice White Prize awarded by the English Association (United Kingdom) “for outstanding scholarly work in the field of English Literature before 1590.”The main page of Electronic Beowulf is the gateway to everything inside, including this Help.

A proposito dell'autore

Laureata con lode in Storia presso l’Università Ca' Foscari di Venezia con una tesi sulla trasformazione delle istituzioni altomedievali attraverso i documenti privati, ho di seguito conseguita la laurea magistrale in Archivistica e biblioteconomia con una tesi sulle biblioteche digitali per gli studi medievistici. Da quegli studi e quelle letture nasce il progetto di condivisione delle risorse disponibili in rete per gli studi storici.
