5.45-7.30 p.m. Music Library, Seminar Room: 4th floor, Music Building, 6361 Memorial Road.
***Directions from Buchanan Bldg***: Walk West along Memorial Rd, across Main Mall
Our next meeting will include a presentation by Marina Lushchenko and a session on manuscripts (Juliet O’Brien and Chantal Phan, with Kirsten Walsh).
“The Confusion between the Turks and the Parthians: Reading History in Medieval French Narrative”
We will be tackling manuscript study, palaeography, codicology, and digital philology; the session is intended as an introduction and rapid overview; and for newcomers to the area and other curious parties (graduate student and other). We will also be able to look at some facsimiles, and Kirsten Walsh, Music librarian, has very generously agreed to stay late that day to guide us in our quest and provide further insider knowledge; along similar lines to our earlier session on Early Romance library resources and its gracious help from specialist librarians (Susan Paterson, Keith Bunnell, and Mary Luebbe).
