    Prof. Kopta Shares Research at the Medieval Academy of America

    Author: Jane DeRose Evans

    Assistant Professor of Instruction Dr. Joseph Kopta spoke at the Medieval Academy of America's 99th Annual Meeting at the Medieval Institute, University of Notre Dame, on March 15, 2024. His paper, "Bookmaking as Knowledge Construction in Byzantine Codices" explored the ways that late Byzantine colophons and recipes for inks and dyes help us understand that the act of bookmaking was itself considered a form of knowledge construction in Byzantium. The session, "Conceptualizing the Knowledge of Artists and Builders in the Global Middle Ages," is the first of two panels on this theme; the second will take place at the International Congress of Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, Michigan in May 2024. This material comes from Kopta's in-progress book project, tentatively titled The Materiality of the Byzantine Codex. Read More
