Technology changes, people don't. Not to go dystopian, but controlling the past allows you to control the present and shape the future. Not by time travel but by discourse, education, narrative dominance.

As a final project they came up with this "Ethical Practices in Digital Collections Project Planning" which recenters the expected checklist for project planning around issues of labor and ethics (They want me to make it clear that this is 2 hours of work and it's very rough!)

Here we have the finished products! Four of my favourite medieval pilgrim’s badges including his gloves, an enthroned Becket, an ampulla showing the martyrdom (once filled with a mixture of blood and water), and Becket’s head inside a sun.

I have been teaching at for more than 15 years. For the third time, I just completed a doctoral seminar designed to prepare non-specialists to teach Byzantine Christianity to undergraduates. I have a few parting thoughts:

For those enjoying the previous post about the canivet method of cutting parchment to look like lace, check out our most spectacular version of this: the Lace Book of Marie de' Medici (W.494)! Every margin is cut differently!

On the back of the Voynich Manuscript story, especially for those outside of academia, I wanted to shed some light on the issues that have allowed this story, and others like it, to happen. In the beginning, you submit an article to a journal relevant to your topic... 1/20

Post- offer: if you didn’t attend this year (for ANY reason, incl. the boycott), but were interested in a paper listed, please reach out to me in a DM. I’m pretty sure I know at least one person who attended in each session and could get notes to you.

Answers include: 1) Fostering AND REWARDING generosity; 2) being on a team, not just leading it, is valued; 3) remind people that digital projects are made by people, not machines (and separate what they do well from what we do well); 4) (from audience) accessibility!
