About this event
UNO - CPACS - Room 132D | Free & Open to the Public What was it like being a student in medieval Bologna? How did students get their textbooks, what did they wear, and what did they do for fun? Through an examination of student drawings, the speaker will explore their upbringing and personal worldview, their creativity and sense of humor. For more information, please contact Martina Saltamacchia at About the Guest Speaker Dr. Susan L’Engle (Ph.D. Art History, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University) is an art historian and manuscript scholar, specializing in medieval manuscripts of canon and Roman law.
