From Parchment to Pixels

You're invited to attend From Parchment to Pixels, a colloquium sponsored by the library, the College of Arts, and the Humanities Interdisciplinary Collaboration (THINC) Lab. 

The colloquium will provide a forum for discussion on the role books played in the medieval world and the world of today. University of Guelph history and art history students will present their research on medieval manuscripts in the “Manuscripts in the Curriculum II”* loan and other encounters with medieval books.

Please join us for the launch of our newest exhibit, Illuminating Life: Manuscript Pages of the Middle Ages, following all presentations. 

*“Manuscripts in the Curriculum II” is an initiative of Les Enluminures, a rare book firm based in Chicago, New York, and Paris, which sponsors loans of medieval manuscripts for use in the classroom to universities and colleges in the US and Canada. The University of Guelph was one of four recipients of a Les Enluminures loan during the 2019/2020 academic year. The manuscripts in the loan will be on view in the exhibit room of Archival & Special Collections from March 12 to May 12, 2020.
