Fragments in context

Photograph with both manuscript and print fragments - images osurce: Rare Book School, Charlottesville, VA

In view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences for keeping safe distances it is only natural that also for the study of fragments online events are being organized. I would like to point here to an event to be held by the Rare Book School, Charlottesville, VA, on September 15, 2020, A Fractured Inheritance: The Problems, Challenges, and Opportunities of Collecting Manuscript Fragments. At 17h ET a 75 minute online panel will start at Zoom. Fragmentology still sounds like a neologism, but it has become an umbrella term for a rich variety of activities, concerns and subdisciplines. This event’s panelists are Sumayya Ahmed, Tom Bredehoft, Lisa Fagin Davis, Rose A. McCandless, and Jim Sims. Eric Johnson will be the moderator of the session. Only 300 persons can register for this online panel. It will be broadcast later on the RBS YouTube channel. You will find further information and the link for registration on the web page of this scholarly event.

Normally the Rare Book School is justly famed for its couses where you can participate in small classes enabling close cooperation with the teaching staff and attention to personal perspectives and questions. Participants receive reading lists in advance and instructions to bring copies of relevant literature. The panelists of this upcoming online session will surely offer food for thought on many subjects touching current research on fragments of manucripts and printed works. Anyway, it is certainly worth your time to look at the programs of RBS Online.
