The next session of the John Rylands Seminar on Print and Materiality in the Early Modern World takes place on Thursday 4th Feb, from 5-7pm in the Christie Room, John Rylands Library. The theme of this session is ‘Sound and Embodied Emotions’. We have a fantastic line-up of speakers and papers:

Dr Penelope Gouk, Manchester, ‘On hearing and harmony: Francis Bacon’s proposal for a new method of interrogating sound and its perception’

Dr Matthew Laube, Cambridge/Brussels, ‘Objects of Harmony: Music and Material Culture in the Confessional Age’

Professor Thomas Schmidt, Manchester, ‘On the making of polyphonic music manuscripts and prints in the early 16th century: the evolution of standard layouts and formats’

It promises to be a great session and we look forward to seeing many of you there. As always, you can find the full programme for the year here:
