In a wide-ranging wrap-up program for the year, we will hear the following papers:

•       Panel presentation, ‘Exhibiting Early Modern Prints in the John Rylands Library: A student perspective’
•       Dr Edward Wouk (University of Manchester), ‘From Icon to Print’
•       Caroline Checkley-Scott (John Rylands Library / University of Manchester), Julianne Simpson (John Rylands Library / University of Manchester) and Professor Stephen Milner (University of Manchester), ‘Venetian Vellum: Skin, Bone and the Aldine Press’
•       Dr Naya Tsentourou (University of Manchester), ‘”The ghost of a linnen decency”: Fears of the material and the immaterial in Milton’s prose’

The session will be held in the Christie Room, John Rylands Library, Deansgate, Manchester. As this is a longer session, afternoon tea will be provided during the break. A group will go for drinks afterwards afterwards – all welcome.

The programme is supported by the John Rylands Research Institute and convened by Sasha Handley and Jenny Spinks. Enquiries: Jenny Spinks: jenny.spinks@manchester.ac.uk.
