Exhibition Reception for "Language Architects Through the Ages" to be held February 25th
February 19, 2016
"Language Architects Through the Ages," an exhibit prepared by Professor Sarah Higley, showcases new and old examples of the imaginative use of strange alphabets, ciphers, asemic writing, and invented languages from medieval to modern times, with a special emphasis on the original artwork and calligraphy donated by outsiders. Items are collected from Rare Books, Robbins Library, Rush Rhees stacks; Sarah's students; and some of her own possessions. This exhibit dovetails with Professor Higley's Spring course, "Magic Language in the Middle Ages," as well as a visit in mid-April by David J. Peterson, author of Dothraki for Game of Thrones. Sarah will give a brief presentation during the event, and refreshments will be served.
Sponsored by the Medieval Studies Council and the Robbins Library.
