From Medieval Britain to Dartmouth: Situating the Dartmouth Brut Manuscript

Saturday, May 21, 2011
9:00am – 5:00pm
Haldeman Center, Kreindler Auditorium Room 041
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Lectures & Seminars
In 2006, Rauner Special Collections purchased a fifteenth-century manuscript containing a copy of the most popular version of British history to circulate in the later Middle Ages. Previously in private hands and therefore not included in any of the major studies of this textual tradition, the Rauner Brut contains a unique compilation of textual versions. This conference will bring together scholars with various kinds of expertise to bring the Dartmouth Brut into the current scholarly conversation about late medieval English culture.
