Dr. Ford Presents at Southeastern Medieval Associations Conference
Assistant Professor of English Dr. Gabriel Ford presented “Monuments, Holy Sites, and Shrines in Silk Road Frametales” at the 2017 Southeastern Medieval Associations Conference in Charleston, South Carolina.
Dr. Ford was awarded a Heckman Research Stipend to support an on-site research trip to the Hill Museum and Manuscript Library in Minnesota. He will use that time to transcribe and collate texts from three medieval Latin manuscripts. This research is in support of his long-term project to produce a new critical edition of the Latin framed story collection Disciplina clericalis by Sephardic converso and Norman court intellectual Petrus Alfonsi.
