Alexandra Gillespie is a member of the Department of English at the University of Toronto. She teaches medieval literature, bibliography, and manuscript studies. Her research is concerned with medieval and early modern texts and books; she is especially interested in the shift from manuscript to print, in the relationship between book history, literary criticism, and literary theory, and in issues arising from the digitization of medieval books. The interviewer here takes her into speculation about the future of e-books. Everything she says seems very sensible.
