Roman de la rose: A Symposium on Fisher MS 07012
Centre for Medieval Studies
Please mark your calendars for an engaging seminar on the Thomas Fisher Library’s new acquisition, a fourteenth-century copy of the Roman de la Rose (MSS 07012)! Hosted by the Centre for Medieval Studies, this one-day meeting will include a small morning workshop on the manuscript itself, followed by lunch for participants. The afternoon session will include lectures by Dr. Timothy Stinson (North Carolina State University) on digital humanities and the Roman de la Rose Digital Library; and Dr. Daisy Delogu (University of Chicago) on the literary context of the Roman de la Rose and its medieval readers. Students from ENG1551H, 'The Canterbury Tales,' will also present their research on Chaucer's debts to the Roman de la Rose in a roundtable. The entire event will be followed by closing remarks by Chief Librarian Larry Alford and a reception at the Fisher Library.
