The Material Texts Workshop is an affiliated working group. Affiliated working groups are coordinated and funded outside of the Department of English.

For a schedule of current events and a searchable archive of past presentations, please visit the website for the Workshop in the History of Material Texts.

The Workshop in the History of Material Texts has been meeting weekly since its founding in 1993. Participants (including faculty, librarians, graduate and undergraduate students, booksellers and anyone else interested) come from a wide range of disciplines.

All are welcome to attend; ongoing attendance is not required, and many people come only to the occasional meeting. Meetings are held on Mondays at 5:15 in the Class of 1978 Pavilion, in the Kislak Center for Special Collections on the 6th floor of the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center.

If you would like to receive announcements about upcoming meetings, please sign up for our listserv using this link. More information can be found on the website.
