Between medieval illumination and modern illustration, there are many traces of reading as a visual (rather than verbal) mode, signs that we have been slow to see and study and for which we are poorly served by both methodology and terminology. This illustrated lecture will use the crucial case of Erasmus to reconsider the complex attitudes toward the relationship between reading and seeing in the 16th century.
Our lectures are FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
We wish to announce the publication of the first book to come out of the St. Robert Southwell, S.J. lecture series:
Michelangelo and the English Martyrs by Anne Dillon
The St. Robert Southwell, S.J. Lecture Series is administered by Susan Wabuda, Associate Professor of History, (718) 817-3945, firstname.lastname@example.org.
