Join Dr. Eric Johnson, Associate Professor and Curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts at The Ohio State University, for an interactive presentation that will provide an introduction to the physical “matter” of medieval manuscripts and demonstrate how and why they continue to “matter” today. Attendees will have the opportunity to work hands-on with real, original medieval manuscripts to learn for themselves how to tease meaning out of centuries-old books.
