A Symposium on Fragments (manuscript and print) will take place in University College Dublin, 17th October 2019. Lisa Fagin Davis (Medieval Academy of America and writer of the Manuscript Road Trip) and Christoph Flueler (University de Fribourg and Director of the Fragmentarium Project) are among the confirmed speakers for the day.

The purpose of the Symposium is to raise awareness of the research value of medieval fragments, and to explore contemporary curatorial solutions to describing manuscript fragments in order to promote their accessibility. The workshop will involve an audience of academics and manuscript librarians and archivists. The Symposium is funded by the College of Arts and Humanities, UCD.

For further details, contact Dr. Niamh Pattwell (School of English, Drama and Film, UCD) at niamh.pattwell@ucd.ie or Dr. Elizabeth Mullins (School of History and Archives UCD) at elizabeth.mullins@ucd.ie.

Further details will be published by UCD later in the Summer. Registration for the conference will open September 1st 2019.
