Manuscripts studies and book histories

G.F. Pico della Mirandola, De rerum praenotione . . . (Kislak)

The Center and the Section are further developing their relationships with the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts. Indeed many of the talks and events in Italian Studies were co-sponsored, in 2017-18, with this Penn “jewel”: see for example the 11/16 talk by Stefano Dall’Aglio, who was a fellow of the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies; the residency of Prof. Lodovica Braida (University of Milan) during the week of April 9th was also part of this fruitful collaboration. For more on the collaboration with the Penn Libraries please see here. Starting with 2018-19, the Center will sponsor one visiting scholar a year for a week-long residency at the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies.
