We are thrilled to announce that Michelangelo Zaccarello, University of Pisa, will hold the keynote speech on Thursday 16th July.
After teaching at some length in Dublin, Oxford and Verona, Michelangelo Zaccarello is professor of Filologia italiana at the University of Pisa: his main research areas are the textual scholarship of early Italian literary texts, mainly comic verse and short stories, and digital philology. Of his more than a hundred publications, many appeared outside Italy: Belgium, Estonia, France, Finland, UK, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, USA.
On Friday 17th July, Danielle Westerhof, rare books librarian, will hold the public lecture.
Since October 2018, Dr Danielle Westerhof has been Rare Books Librarian at Palace Green Library, part of Durham University’s Library and Collections, following on from a one-year position in which she worked on enhancing access to the Bamburgh Library. She has an interest in the materiality of the book and the relationship between libraries and identities, particularly in 18th-century England. Before joining Durham University, she worked freelance as a historic libraries consultant and rare books cataloguer.
A full schedule and list of speakers will be confirmed in March.
