Coffee with a Codex: Star Wars

An informal lunch or coffee time to meet virtually with Kislak curators and talk about one of the manuscripts from Penn's collections. Each week we'll feature a different manuscript and the expertise of one of our curators. Everyone is welcome to attend.

May 4 is Star Wars Day, so Dr Brandon Hawk will join Dot to talk about the manuscripts of Star Wars and how their designs are informed by real medieval manuscripts. (CWAC Recording) You can also read our paper Aionomica, Rammahgon, and De sphaera mundi: Bibliographic Medievalism in Star Wars, which we presented at Books on Screen: A Virtual Symposium, University of Leeds and Anglia Ruskin University, November 3, 2021.
