Texts and Contexts

Texts and Contexts: A Manuscript Conference at The Ohio State
University, October 26-27, 2012.

The conference seeks to investigate the textual traditions of various texts and genres, including texts in classical Latin, mediaeval Latin, Anglo-Saxon, Middle English, and the vernaculars. Preference will be
given to those abstracts which deal with newly discovered texts and their manuscript settings, or which present new perspectives on established textual traditions. We encourage graduate students and newly
established scholars to submit their work.  

Please send abstracts to Professor Frank Coulson, Director of Palaeography, 190 Pressey Hall,
1070 Carmack Road, Columbus, OH 43210 or by email to<>.

Virginia Brown Memorial Lecture: Craig Kallendorf, Texas A&M University

Professor Kallendorf's paper is titled, "Handwritten Marginalia in Early Printed Virgil Editions."

The conference will also host a special organized panel on Renaissance commentaries on the Classics.
