Abstracts of Papers for Symposia, Workshops & Colloquia

Abstracts of Papers
at our Symposia, Workshops & Colloquia

Here Listed by Year

Please Note.  For convenience, we distinguish between the Activities which we sponsor at larger Conferences and the Events of other kinds which we organize in their own right.

At Conferences, we sponsor and c0-sponsor Sessions and other Activities at the annual International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo in May.  We also sponsor Panels at the annual Convention of the Midwest Modern Language Association

Here we focus on the Events, including Symposia, Colloquia, Workshops, and Seminars, which we organize at other centers.

For convenience, we group these Events according to

I.  The Abstracts of Papers published on our website for the Events can be accessed in two ways.

A.  Seminars (Etc) on ‘The Evidence of Manuscripts’ from 1989 to 1994

B.  Symposia (Etc) on various subjects, from 1995 onwards.

Here we present the Abstracts for the Symposia and other Events (1995–)

They can be accessed both

1) By Year of Presentation and then by Author, listed alphabetically by last name: You are here.
2) By Author, listed alphabetically, and then chronologically by Year of Presentation [IN PREPARATION]

II.  Elsewhere we list the Abstracts published, as their Authors wish, for some of our Sessions (since 2007) at the International Congress on Medieval Studies.  They include both our

All the Abstracts for those Sessions are accessible by Indexes both

1) By Author
2) By Year

Before our first website, Abstracts of some Papers in our Sponsored Sessions appeared in the Old English Newsletter, as reported below, with our Index to their Authors and Years.

Now we begin to produce a list of the Authors of the Abstracts published in our Program Booklets for our Events elsewhere than at that Congress, including Seminars, Workshops, Colloquia & Symposia.  Many of our events were accompanied by Abstracts in one form or another, varying from single summaries to longer accounts.  They appear on this site at present through the Posts for their specific Events.

Here we list them in alphabetical order for each event, with references to their Abstracts as represented on this site or elsewhere.

*****

Note:  Elsewhere on our website appear the Abstracts, concise or extended, for the presentations in our series of Seminars on “The Evidence of Manuscripts”.  They constitute a closed and pioneering set of events which helped to develop and to refine our collaborative, collegial, approach to the study of manuscripts and their contexts.

Those events comprise a focused group, which paved the way both for the publication of the Illustrated Catalogue of Insular, Anglo-Saxon, and Early Anglo-Norman Manuscript Art at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge (1997) and for the further events which followed the move of the principal base of the Research Group on Manuscript Evidence to the United States in 1994. Among them are the Sessions and other activities at the Annual International Congress on Medieval Studies; multiple Publications (including our website in its first and current versions), and the series of Symposia, Workshops, and Colloquia listed here.

1995–2000
Symposia on ‘The Transmission of the Bible’

1995
‘The Bible and the Visual Arts’
Barnard College and Columbia University

[Abstracts not included]

This was the first event for the Research Group on Manuscript in the United States, and we did not know how it would succeed.
Hence the focus on the event itself.  It was a success, leading to more.  And the rest is history.

‘Shaping Understanding:  Form and Order in the Anglo-Saxon World, 400–1100’
A Colloquium at the British Museum

5-page Program downloadable here

The Abstracts, detailed to various degrees, of the 33 papers presented at the Colloquium were laid out in single columns in a 14-page Booklet (Princeton: Research Group on Manuscript Evidence, 2002), according with the principles of our Style Manifesto, for distribution at the Colloquium and circulation afterward.  That version is available online here.

The Abstracts alone, without mentioning the Research Group on Manuscript Evidence, were reprinted in double-column layout in the Old English Newsletter, 35:3 (Spring 2002), A-5–A-15, now available online.

Here we list the authors alphabetically (while the publications list them in the order in which their papers were presented), with reference first to the 2002 Colloquium Booklet and then to the OEN.
