Full House for Philologist Jana Schulman

Yesterday's Department Speakers Series keynote speech by Dr. Jana Schulman, "The Job of a Philologist Is Never Done: Translating and Editing Jónsbókthe Laws of Later Iceland," was attended by a large audience consisting of students, staff, and faculty from the Department, the Medieval Institute, and beyond. Schulman's fascinating account of her work on the diplomatic edition and English translation of the seminal code of law in late medieval Iceland focused on textual, linguistic, political, religious, and legal aspects.  

The next Speakers Series even will take place on Thursday, March 17, 7p.m., 3025 Brown Hall. Dorothy Noyes, Departments of English, Comparative Studies, and Anthropology, Ohio State University, will speak on “Fairytale Economics: Scarcity, Risk, Choice." This event is co-sponsored by: the Haenicke Institute for Global Education, Africana Studies Program, Lee Honors College, and the Department of Anthropology
