Symposium on Early Codices

If you’re going to be in the New York area a month from now (23 February) and have an interest in early codices, you may want to be aware of an afternoon symposium at the Bard Graduate Center that promises to be illuminating: Early Codices: Production, Destruction, and Modern Conservation. I’ll be speaking on “The Emergence of the Codex in the Roman Empire.” The symposium is taking place in conjunction with an exhibition that also opens on the 23rd of February and runs through the beginning of July, The Codex and Crafts in Late Antiquity.

    Brent, I would be very interested to hear what you have to say about the codex in the the early Roman Empire (on Feb 23 at 1.20 pm). This event is supposed to be live streamed. How do I get access to it?

  2. I think you just need to go to the symposium website to which I link in the post on the day of the event, and there will be a link to the stream.
