Princeton-Rutgers Book History Colloquium | “The Virtual Materiality of Texts: Book History during a Pandemic”
Friday, November 20, 2020 @ 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM
A virtual colloquium on teaching, reading, and research in the time of Covid-19
The global pandemic and consequent ‘lockdown’ in most nations around the world have affected academic activity across all disciplines, but the impact has been especially profound for scholars whose research and teaching depend on accessibility to material texts and media. Yet, these unexpected challenges have also opened new opportunities. The purpose of this one-day colloquium is to provide the basis for discussion among scholars of book, manuscript and media history about the status of the field during this moment of difficulty in accessing archival resources, and to share experiences and ideas for teaching and research with material texts in the time of Covid-19.
Registration is required to attend. To register to attend this colloquium, please register for this webinar at:
