Welcome

Now it’s officially linked to the EDC website, welcome to our blog!
Not the most elegant word for a journal. Perhaps “commonplace-book” would be more a appropriate title for our collective antiquarian jottings. But I do like the notion of conversation, in the modern sense of social exchange, but with classical connotations of society “turning together”. Just the thing for our extended social circle.

As noted on our news page, we’ve intended for some time to find a way of opening up a conversation amongst the many (several hundred) wonderful and interesting friends we’ve made over the years amongst our students and colleagues.  So feel free to join in, and share ideas, tidbits, questions and suggestions that might be of interest to others in the EDC community.

One thought on “Welcome

  1. You may be wondering what a commonplace book is. I was inspired by a recent session on manuscripts at Sydney Uni, at which such a book of jottings was the subject of discussion. It had been kept over many years by the composer Johann Sigismund Cousser (Kusser) as a record of his large collection of sheet music.
