Description

For the last ten years, the Marco Institute has sponsored its Manuscript Workshop, an annual gathering of scholars sharing their work on manuscripts and codicology in an informal collaborative setting. The guiding principle behind this program has been that scholars of all levels can better work through the thorny issues of textual scholarship with an engaged scholarly community, which can also open up new avenues of research for projects in development. The Marco-sponsored session “Mind the Gaps” will focus on understanding how readers interact with the physical layout of the page, script choice, or text-image interaction. “Mind the gaps” is open to papers covering topics like erasures, marginalia, missing portions, possible cases of censorship, or the disassembly and rebinding of manuscripts in the medieval and early modern periods.
