20 October 2018
University College Dublin, Ireland


The first of the Practices of Knowledge Selection (PoKS) event series, this workshop brings together seven scholars working on complementing topics, themes and texts in early medieval codicology. This small opening event will take place on campus at UCD over the course of a day and will feature  innovative work-in-progress that will set the tone for the conference in the following spring, also in Dublin.

The workshop will examine the central questions of the PoKS project by comparing specific manuscript examples, as presented in informal papers by specialists in both Western and Eastern early medieval codicology, palaeography and textual practices. The workshop audience will also be invited to participate fully in questions and discussions throughout the day. In particular, this event will focus on the interaction between texts and their material supports. It asks: how were the different textual and material layers of medieval books brought together over time, and what effect did this have on intellectual practice?

The advanced results of the workshop will be presented by its participants at the principal PoKS conference on 24 and 25 May 2019. The reviewed, revised output will be digitally published on this website by Networks and Neighbours (N&N), in association with Punctum Books

As with all N&N events, this will be free, no-fees and open to all (with all output published in similarly no-fees, open-access). If you would like to attend as a guest, please let us know in advance.
