Books of Unusual Size: Big Data and Tiny Books

Date: 22 March 2023
Time: 6:30 pm ET/4:30 pm MT
Location: University of Utah
Presented by: The Andrew W. Mellon Society of Fellows in Critical Bibliography

Alexa Sand, Professor of Art History at Utah State University, talks about recent research that combines quantitative analysis of manuscript sizes with historical patterns of making and use. In other words, why does the size of manuscripts matter?

This event was held on 22 March 2023. See below for a link to the YouTube recording.

Alexa Sand is Professor of Art History at Utah State University, where she also serves as the Associate Vice President for Research. Her own research addresses the intersection of word and image in later medieval art in France, England, and Italy, with a focus on illuminating questions of gender, visuality, and devotion. In her teaching, she emphasizes student-centered learning and critically re-imagines the boundaries of medieval art: historically, in the classroom, and for our contemporary society.
