The Centre and the Thrill of CHASE

Last week, the CHASE consortium of universities ran another of its successful workshops for doctoral students on Material Witness. This session took place at Lambeth Palace Library and, alongside its Librarian, Giles Mandelbrote, the Centre’s Co-Director, David Rundle, was one of the presenters. His theme was the material evidence books can provide for the journeys they have taken and consideration of what medieval and early modern catalogues can tell us about how the books were seen.

One of the students attending the session was our own Helen Kemp and she has provided a blog-post describing her experiences of the day.
