March 21 is Write Like a Scribe Day
Join Professor Jeffrey Cohen from the GW English Department and his Chaucer class for hands-on history at Write Like a Scribe Day.
View selected manuscripts from Gelman's Special Collections and then use the latest technology of the fourteenth century - a quill that you will make yourself, ink, and parchment (the real animal skin kind) - to create your own page. Get your hands dirty and learn something about history you can't necessarily find in a book - how the media you use in part determines the possibilities for the writing and story-telling you can undertake.
Medieval(ish) refreshments will be served. All are welcome.
