Ph.D. candidate Christine Bachman will be presenting her talk, "Making Manuscripts in Early Medieval Laon," at the annual University of Delaware Graduate Students Forum for Research and Creative Works, happening this Friday, April 20. This is a day-long event in Clayton Hall Conference Center that brings together UD graduate students across disciplines presenting papers and posters. This year’s theme is “Building Bridges: Advancing Research and Communication Across Disciplines,” and the keynote speaker will be U.S. Senator for Delaware Tom Carper.
In her talk, Bachman will discuss eighth century manuscripts believed to be created in Laon as a means to study book production in the early Middle Ages. These manuscripts vary in topic and design and provide a glimpse into many disciplines of the time.
