Textual Objects Forum: A Material History of the Tura Papyri
Stefaniw: “Even in this tiny fragment of the story of these codices, we have themes of chronography, displacement and patrimony which are part of the theoretical house we live in when we talk about manuscripts. Manuscripts and the way we engage with them are part of how we mark time, find our place, and belong to somebody. Working with these objects meant thinking about all the things that enclose them: archives, knowledge, readers, and time.”
