Lecturer in Latin and Palaeography, Dr David Rundle, will be giving a talk titled, ‘Neil Ker and the Tradition of Studying Fragments in the UK’ on Thursday 23 April at 15.00. Dr Rundle’s talk will be part of the Fragmentarium project’s video conference series.
Dr Rundle shares, “As well as discussing Ker’s work and placing it in a longer tradition of scholarship, this will also give an opportunity to launch the online edition of Ker’s catalogue of pastedowns in Oxford bindings, as first published in 1954, augmented by David Pearson in 2000 and with further addenda from the 2004 reprint of Ker’s work.
This will appear on the Lost Manuscripts website. This project has been a long-term dream of mine, and it would not have been possible without the generous support of the Bibliographical Society of London and Oxford Bibliographical Society, or without the skilled assistance of Dr James Willoughby.”
