Partnerships

This exhibit was made possible through a partnership of 4th-year undergraduate students in Digitizing Medieval Manuscripts – HIST4006A, and Carleton University’s History Department.  The central focus for the two-term course was on the history & culture of medieval manuscripts, chiefly from Western Europe, and particularly within the realm of digital media.  In the first term, each student selected one of ARC or CUAG’s manuscripts to research & analyze, transcribing them, and creating a collection of archival metadata using a variety of digital resources.  In our winter term, we approached Ann, Joan, & Tanya about hosting an exhibit, in order to demonstrate our work. The wonderful support staff were incredibly encouraging, and excited to collaborate with us on this exhibit.

We thank them for their generous cooperation, as well as the use of their glass exhibit space in Patterson Hall!

Archives and Research Collections (ARC) actively pursues & acquires archival collections and rare books, in support of research and scholarship at Carleton. They has been actively involved in this full year course through a variety of ways, and are always happy to provide consultations.

We would like to thank Archives and Research Collections for allowing us the use of several of their manuscripts in our exhibit, for providing display stands & mounting material, in addition to printing our publicity posters! We encourage you to take a trip over to the fifth floor of the MacOdrum Library to see these manuscripts in person!

CUAG is a vital cultural hub on the Carleton University campus, connecting art, ideas and communities. By offering a diverse program of art exhibitions, events and publications, CUAG pushes students & visitors alike to explore the ideas that shape contemporary society.
Much like ARC at the beginning of the term, CUAG generously let our class select from their manuscripts, for research. The manuscripts in this exhibit are taken both from ARC & CUAG, in order to demonstrate the breadth of historical material available at Carleton University.

Through this combination this exhibit brings together two remarkable collections allowing students and faculty to take in some of the many historical artifacts housed at Carleton.

Special Thanks

We could not have accomplished this project without the help of the many volunteers in from the Carleton community. Thank you to Shamus McCoy (Greek and Roman Studies) who recorded the Latin transcriptions of our folia. Thank you to Venerable Marc Saurette, who was patient and encouraging to us all throughout this process and whose plethora of spreadsheets kept the team on track.
