Schiff at Cambridge University Conference

Karen Schiff (Lecturer, History of Art + Visual Culture), presented a paper at Jesus College, Cambridge University, about the marbled leaf in the novel, Tristram Shandy.

Her paper, Revitalizing Humanity through ‘Reading’ the Marbled Page, offered new perspectives on the colorful, monumental project of paper marbling in the novel’s original edition. The Alas, Poor Yorick! conference of the International Laurence Sterne Foundation commemorated the 250th anniversary of the death of the novel’s author.
