Matthew T. Hussey studies book history and the intellectual culture of Anglo-Saxon England with a focus on Anglo-Latin and Old English literature and their manuscript contexts. He has published on Beowulf, the Exeter Book, habitus and paleography and is working on a book on "scenes of reading" in Anglo-Saxon manuscripts. He has recently published a volume of codicological descriptions of manuscripts from early medieval Exeter. He is particularly interested in the materiality of the book and its meanings in the age of digitization. He is also the associate editor of the ongoing 'Anglo-Saxon Manuscripts in Microfiche Facsimile' series.
