A honors seminar in the spring at the University of Arkansas will examine the culture of manuscripts, documents written and copied by hand. Joshua Byron Smith, an assistant professor of English and director of Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program at the University of Arkansas will lead the seminar. He'll also deliver a public talk 5:15 p.m. Wednesday in Gearhart Hall on the U of A campus about the topic. We sat down with him for a preview.
