Material Texts

Formerly "History of the Book"

The workshop in the History of Material Texts will celebrate its 23rd year in 2015-16. Participants (including faculty, librarians, graduate students, booksellers and anyone else interested) come from a very wide range of disciplines; all are welcome to attend. The usual format of the seminar is a presentation of approximately thirty minutes, followed by discussion, based if possible on handouts or other visual materials. Unless noted otherwise, meetings will be held on Mondays at 5:15 in the Class of '78 Pavilion, in the Kislak Center for Special Collections on the 6th floor of Van Pelt-Dietrich Library. If you would like to receive announcements about upcoming meetings, please sign up for our listserv using this link.
