‘Medieval Manuscripts as Truly Open Data’
Dr Will Noel, Director of the Special Collections Center and founding director of the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies, University of Pennsylvania
Thursday 10 January at 6.15pm in the Anatomy Museum, 6th Floor, King’s Building, Strand Campus, King’s College London. All welcome.
Dr Noel is a distinguished historian of medieval art and manuscripts, whose publications include studies of the Harley Psalter, Utrecht Psalter and the Oxford Bible. As Curator of Manuscripts and Rare Books at the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, Dr Noel was responsible foe a ground-breaking project using innovative imaging and computing techniques to recover a text of Archimedes which had been erased in the thirteenth century, which he has described in his recent book, The Archimedes Codex: Revealing the Secrets of the World’s Greatest Palimpsest. Dr Noel has recently been appointed to direct the University of Pennsylvania’s new special collections facility which opens this year and will include a digital media lab for experimentation in the digital humanities. He is also the founding Director of the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies, the endowment for which included a landmark collection of 287 medieval and renaissance manuscripts.
