Heritage Resources Distinguished Speakers: Dr. Kathryn Vulic, "Exploring Medieval Manuscripts"
Using original and facsimiles of medieval manuscripts held by Western Libraries Special Collections, WWU Professor of English Dr. Kathryn Vulić will provide an overview of the study of medieval handwriting, manuscript construction, creation and preservation, leading us to a better understanding of the medieval processes around manuscript production and use.

She has been at Western since 2004 teaching Medieval Literature and Romance, Old Middle English, British Literature, as well as seminars on Chaucer, Chaucer’s England, and Tolkien’s Medieval Sources. She has published and presented on the composition of late medieval writings, medieval understandings of reading and literacy, and the influence of prayer rhetoric and meditative habits on the forms and content of Middle English texts.
