Lyon Winter Workshop 2022

This year’s Winter workshop will take place in Lyon on 28-29 November 2022 at Enssib, the French national school for book history, information science and librarianship. It will be organised by the Gabriel Naudé research centre and will be the occasion to open the research group to the Iberian world as we shall welcome Professor Pedro Rueda Ramírez of the Facultat d’Informació i Mitjans Audiovisuals of the University of Barcelona and Marina Ruiz Fargas and Núria Cangròs i Alonso from the Rare Book and Manuscript CRAI Library of the university. The event is in part paid for by a grant ‘Pack Ambition Internationale’ obtained from the region Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes to create new research connections with Barcelona. Two further events will be associated to this grant.

The Winter workshop is organised around the theme of determining provenances and grouping Sammelbände. This will be done with papers dedicated to specific cases and types of Sammelbände or with reference to wider themes (provenance via written indication, manuscript clues, binding information, etc). The Tuesday afternoon will be dedicated to a visit to the Diderot library of ENS Lyon to look at some specific cases from their collections.
