Canterbury Cathedral (Material Witness Series)

  • Canterbury Cathedral (map)

Our investigations into the materiality of objects in the digital age continue. Come and join us on Friday 17 May in the library and archives at Canterbury Cathedral where we will be exploring manuscripts and printed books in the cathedral collection under the expert guidance of Dr David Rundle (University of Kent) and Cressida Williams (Canterbury Cathedral). David is a Renaissance historian and palaeographer whose research focuses upon the role of books within the late medieval and early modern culture of Western Europe. Cressida is Head of Archives and Library at Canterbury Cathedral and leads the team which cares for the manuscript and book collection.

The day will begin at 11am and finish around 4pm, and will include lunch and a tour of the Cathedral led by Dr Alixe Bovey, Head of Research at The Courtauld Institute of Art, and the founder of Material Witness. 

Full details of the programme will be published after the Easter break and will be limited to 12 participants. In the meantime take a look at the blog posts by participants of previous workshops
