Colóquio — Manuscript Studies in the Digital Age

5th Annual Lawrence J. Schoenberg Symposium on Manuscript Studies in the Digital Age
University of Pennsylvania
16-17 Novembro 2012

Taxonomies of Knowledge

In partnership with the Rare Book Department of the Free Library of Philadelphia, the University of Pennsylvania Libraries are pleased to announce the 5th Annual Lawrence J. Schoenberg Symposium on Manuscript Studies in the Digital Age. This year's symposium considers the role of the manuscript in organizing and classifying knowledge. Like today's electronic databases, the medieval manuscript helped readers access, process, and analyze the information contained within the covers of a book. The papers presented at this symposium will examine this aspect of the manuscript book through a variety of topics, including the place of the medieval library in manuscript culture, the rise and fall of the 12th-century commentary tradition, diagrams, devotional practice, poetics, and the organization and use of encyclopedias and lexicons.
Participants include:
  • Katharine Breen, Northwestern University
  • Mary Franklin-Brown, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities
  • Vincent Gillespie, University of Oxford
  • Alfred Hiatt, University of London
  • Eric Ramirez-Weaver, University of Virginia
  • Lesley Smith, University of Oxford
  • Emily Steiner, University of Pennsylvania
  • Peter Stallybrass, University of Pennsylvania
  • Joanna Weinburg, University of Oxford
Registration fee is $35 ($10 for students with valid student ID).  Registration opens August 15.
