Programme for "The Book at the Bodleian"
I am delighted to share the programme for "The Book at the Bodleian: Whence? Where? Whither?".
For twenty years, the Lyell benefaction has offered a career development fellowship that has enabled scholars to study subjects that have included the History of the Book, bibliography and palaeography. Now, these nine Lyell Fellows come together for the first time to reflect on developments in their respective fields and present their current research.
Register now for what promises to be a lively, engaging and thought-provoking conference!
