Manuscripts, A Roundtable

Southeastern Medieval Association Conference, Spartanburg SC, 5-7 November
2020 [1]

We invite proposals for c. 10 minute presentations for this proposed
roundtable for SEMA 2020. Submissions are invited from all disciplines.
Topics might include, but are not limited to: using manuscripts in the
classroom, using digitized manuscripts, experiential activities influenced by
manuscripts, and how teaching with manuscripts can be done remotely in the
Covid-19 era. We are especially keen to hear from participants based in
libraries, archives, and museums.

Please email a proposal of 100-200 words length and a short bio to Vicky
McAlister [2] and Roxanne Dunn [3] before
Friday 22 May. We will submit accepted proposals to SEMA for their
consideration by the 5 June deadline.

Led by Prof. Michele Tomasi, the Art History Department of the
University of Lausanne is hosting an international conference titled
"Within and without the manuscript: interactions between illumination
and the other arts" on October 22nd-23rd, 2020.

The call for papers is open until May 15th, and we would like to
explore this question with papers from a broad geographical and
chronological range, including the Early Middle Ages, too often set
aside in such methodological approaches.

Could you please forward this call for paper to the EMF list?

Thank you very much in advance.

Kind regards,

Sabine Utz

Head Curator
