After eleven years, I have quit Facebook.

Efterlysning: gamla exemplar av Elementa rhetorica av Gerardus Johannis Vossius

Jag skriver på en artikel om pedagogiska och retoriska funktioner hos marginalia i tidigmoderna läromedel.

Bland annat studerar jag marginalanteckningar och annat 'klotter' i Gerardus Johannis Vossius' Elementa rhetorica, en liten latinsk retoriklärobok som användes i den lärda svenska skolan från mitten av 1600-talet till början av 1800-talet.

Eftersom jag i denna studie undersöker faktiska spår som olika elever och andra läsare lämnat efter sig i verket behöver jag också ta del av så många skilda exemplar av verket som möjligt. Av särskilt intresse är upplagor tryckta i Sverige, men också upplagor tryckta i utlandet kan vara intressanta eftersom också sådana använts av elever i svenska skolor och gymnasier.

Sitter någon på ett exemplar av boken och kan tänka sig att på ett ellar annat sätt göra det tillgängligt för undersökningen skulle jag bli mycket tacksam.

Kontakta mig i så fall på stefan.rimm@oru.se eller här på Facebook.

Message in a bottle, found in the Baltic Sea in 1944. It's in German, but what does it say?

"It follows that those social science and humanities academics who go through life anxious to prove themselves a ‘source’ (of citations) but not a ‘hub’ (of cites to others) are not practicing the reputation-building skills that they fondly imagine. Similarly a scholar who cites other people’s work only if it agrees with theirs, or who sifts the literature in an ideologically-limited or in a discipline-siloed way, ignoring other views, perspectives and contra-indications from the evidence, is just a poorer researcher. Their practice is self-harming not just to themselves, but to all who read their works or follow after them as students at any level."

M. R. James (1862-1936): Ghost Stories of an Antiquary. Read by Peter Yearsley.

Montague Rhodes James (1862-1936) was a medieval scholar; Provost of King’s College, Cambridge. He wrote many of his ghost stories to be read aloud in the long tradition of spooky Christmas Eve tales. His stories often use rural settings, with a quiet, scholarly protagonist getting caught up in the activities of supernatural forces. The details of horror are almost never explicit, the stories relying on a gentle, bucolic background to emphasise the awfulness of the otherworldly intrusions.

“Ghost Stories of an Antiquary” was written as two collections, presented here as two volumes in a single work. There is a short author’s preface before the first story in each volume. (Summary by Peter Yearsley)
