Charles E. Young Research Library Lobby Gallery
Off the Shelf: Medieval Manuscripts and the Aesthetics of the Past
Extended through July
“Off the Shelf” assembles medieval manuscripts, printed books, board games, and even comic books to explore different visions of the medieval English past. In particular, the exhibit focuses on the afterlives of medieval manuscripts and their subjects, as illustrated by items from UCLA Library Special Collections. It has been organized by UCLA English Professor Matthew Fisher and graduate students Gillian Adler and Emily Runde and scheduled in conjunction with "Medievalism's Manuscripts: The History of Medieval Manuscripts off the Shelf," a symposium coordinated by the UCLA Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies and the J. Paul Getty Museum.
