Burger Lecture in Medieval Literature: Elaine Treharne

The Phenomenal Book: Making and Breaking Medieval Manuscripts 

Guest lecture by Elaine Treharne, Stanford University 

Elaine Treharne is Roberta Bowman Denning Professor of the Humanities at Stanford University, a medievalist, digital humanist, and book historian. She focuses on the long history of manuscript production and use, and this lecture will present some of her newest research from her current work, The Phenomenal Book. She will discuss the phenomenology of the manuscript: how it was perceived and use in the medieval world; and how manuscripts are mediated today by institutions in Reading Rooms or through digital display; or through book-dealers, including those who deliberately dismember medieval books for profit. 

A reception with provided refreshments will begin at 4:30 p.m. The Burger lecture will begin at 5 p.m.
