CRASSH Secrets Conference...

How did I manage not to notice this conference before now? "Secrets and Knowledge: Medicine, Science and Commerce 1500-1800" runs from 15th-16th February 2008 at CRASSH at Cambridge University, featuring such stars as William Eamon (whose epic "Science and the Secrets of Nature" sits by my right shoulder) and Lauren Kassell (with whom I briefly corresponded about the Book of Dunstan back in 2001).

It sounds like a fascinating, fantastic mini-event, and I just can't wait... even though I'll probably be the only Voynichologist there. Does anyone else see the VMs as a mid-Quattrocento example of the "books of secrets" genre too? Apparently not... *sigh*
