??????????

Dr Katherine Zieman

formerly Assistant Professor of English and Medieval Studies at Notre Dame University
will give two Oliver Smithies Lectures in Hilary term:

‘Miraculous Multitasking and Other Stories in the History of Attention’

on Thursday 20 February 2014, 5.00pm (5th Week) in Lecture Room XXIII, Balliol College.

‘William Gray and His Books’

William Gray was the single most important donor (by far) to Balliol’s 15th century library. More than half the surviving library of medieval Balliol came from Gray.

Lecture Room XXIII is underneath the Senior Common Room, near the top right corner of this map of Balliol.
