Mediaevalia, hosted at the Lilly Library, is an annual conference organized jointly by our Medieval Studies Institute and the Lilly Library. Scholars present history and study from manuscripts and early prints to students and faculty. The presentation seeks to give students a concrete understanding of what information the material aspects of a book can provide during the Late Antiquity to Reformation period.
Join us for 2022 Mediaevalia on Wednesday, November 2nd!
Dr. Eric Johnson of The Ohio State University Libraries will lead a workshop on interpreting various forms of “paratext,” from the physical evidence of broken bindings to the complexity of indices and other textual finding aids.
