Mark Friday 11 October as a date for your diary!
We invite you to join us at a special showcase event for the five Hunterian Associates who have been working with Special Collections and Archives material over the past few months. Please come along to the Henry Heaney seminar room (Special Collections: University Library: level 12) to enjoy fresh interpretations of our world class collections. Each Associate will talk about their project (for approx 30-40 mins) and mount a display of material related to their topic.
Feel free to drop in, or attend the whole day. Attendance is free and welcome to all, but please register via Eventbrite (https://hap-special-collections.eventbrite.co.uk/) as places in the Henry Heaney room are limited.
Schedule for the day:
10 am: Craig Lamont: Posters, Newspapers, Broadsides: Ephemera from Old Glasgow
11 am: Luca Guariento: From the origin of the cosmos to the heartbeat: a journey through Robert Fludd’s opera omnia
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available in the Special Collections foyer over lunchtime.
2 pm: Brianna Robertson: Singing treatises and their function
3 pm: Lorna MacBean: The Literary Networks of Zachary Boyd (1585-1653)
4 pm: Julie Wertz: Resurrecting Turkey red: Adapting a historic process for modern re-creation and analysis
This is also an opportunity for prospective Associates for 2014 to find out about the Programme and talk informally to current Associates and staff in Special Collections & Archives supervising projects.
We look forward to seeing you on the 11th October at what promises to be a fun and informative day!
