Professor Barrett to Present at Fulbright Lunch & Learn Seminar

The Iowa Chapter of the Fulbright Association—in conjunction with UI International Programs—sponsors a series of Lunch & Learn presentations by Fulbright scholars on campus. Professor Tim Barrett will be the presenter on March 3 at 12:30 P.M. (in room 1117 UCC).

Professor Barrett will share details of his memorable experiences in Japan four decades ago when he undertook two years of research on the Japanese craft of papermaking. He will also describe how he went on to a fulfilling and rewarding career as a specialist in the wider history and technique of hand papermaking. His current research interests are focused on 15th century European papermaking materials, techniques, and aesthetics.

Barrett is the author of two books, seven videotapes, and thirty-six articles or book chapters on the history, technique, science, and aesthetics of hand papermaking. In 2009, he received a MacArthur Fellowship.
