Manuscripts on Mondays: Medievalist on a Roll Dr. Adrienne Williams Boyarin (Department of English) An in-depth look at one of the most treasured items of the Bruce and Dorothy Brown Collection, a 21-foot-long genealogical roll of English kings and events before 1472 CE. Dr. Adrienne Williams Boyarin will showcase the roll’s political biases (and even some of its humour!), discuss recent work on the roll by UVic students, and reveal new discoveries about its history and connections to other libraries.

Treasures & Tea: Red Ruling in Early Printed Books Dr. Erin Kelly (Department of English) Ruling, lines drawn around the text block and sometimes under headings, is ubiquitous in medieval manuscripts. But why add red ruling to printed books? By displaying instances of red ruling in individual copies of early printed books (including examples from the archives at University of Victoria!), Dr. Kelly will demonstrate how individuals red ruled their books to customize mass-produced objects and in the process signalled how both books and texts were consumed.
