The Making and Knowing Project (a Center for Science and Society Research Cluster directed by Seth Low Professor of History Pamela Smith) has co-organized and will participate in the symposium “Du Manuscrit au Livre. L’écriture des Savoir-Faire à la Renaissance” (From the Manuscript to the Book: The Writing of How-To in the Renaissance) to be held March 15 – 17, 2018 in Toulouse, France.
The symposium will open the Toulouse Renaissance exhibit, an examination of the city’s cultural landscape during the Renaissance period. The exhibit will be on display in Toulouse at the Musée des Augustins from March 17 – September 24, 2018 and at the Bibliothèque d’Étude et du Patrimoine from March 17 – June 16, 2018.
The exhibition includes objects created by the Project as part of their research on the sixteenth-century French technical manuscript, BnF Ms. Fr. 640, compiled in Toulouse. The manuscript itself will also be on display.
