Layers of Parchment, Layers of Time: Reconstructing Manuscripts 800 – 1600, is an interdisciplinary day-long symposium that will explore various issues surrounding the complex subject of manuscript reconstruction. Our goal is to foster dialogues—between different disciplines—on how to approach dismembered manuscripts from intellectual and practical perspectives.
It will take place in Pembroke College, Cambridge on 23 June 2017
Call for Papers, 1 February 2017
REGISTRATION now open.
The colloquium will take place on Saturday, 6th May 2017 at Merton College, Oxford.
Morning and afternoon sessions will each consist of two panels running concurrently on particular topics (1.5 hrs) followed by a plenary session (1 hr) in which members of the two panels will report and comment on the panel session to all of the delegates, and facilitate further discussion. The hope is that by dividing the delegates into smaller groups than at the last meeting of Teaching the Codex more focused conversations will be generated.
The registration fee is £10:–, covering attendance, lunch, and refreshments. To register please follow this link to the Oxford University Stores:
