Codices and Communities: Networks of Reading and Production, 1350-1550

The tenth biennial EBS conference is hosted by Sue Powell, University of Salford, with visits and sessions to be held at Chetham's Library and the John Ryland's Library, Manchester, and a day out to Stonyhurst College. Proposals may consider any aspect of the history of manuscripts and printed books from 1350-1550, including the copying and circulation of models and exemplars, style, illustration, and/or the influence of readers and patrons, artists, scribes, printers. Special consideration will be given to proposals considering the circulation of MSS and early printed books within and/or beyond specific communities of readers or makers, as well as on transitions from MS to print or print to MS.
