Campus Conversations: “Meet a Medieval Manuscript” with Professor Carrie Beneš

October 24, 2019 : 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Event Navigation

Come join us for this rare opportunity to examine an actual medieval manuscript with Prof. Beneš, who will guide us through what it is, how it works, what historians do with these things, how they differ from printed books and digital formats, etc.

Professor Carrie Beneš
 teaches Medieval and Renaissance history at New College of Florida. She is a cultural historian specializing in late medieval Italy. Her main research interests involve intellectual networks and the construction of history as a means to identity: specifically, how people throughout history have used and manipulated the past to suit their own ends. Her other academic interests include book history (palaeography, codicology, illumination, and the history of libraries), Italian humanism, the history and historiography of the Renaissance, urban history, premodern travel, and the historical epidemiology (especially the plague). She offers courses on these subjects as well as general surveys of the medieval, Renaissance, and early modern periods.
