Teaching the Early Modern Book

The Center for Renaissance Studies at the Newberry Library is hosting a research methods workshop on Teaching the Early Modern Book: Ways of Seeing, Ways of Thinking.

This is a great opportunity for graduate students interested in the history of printing and cultural history in early modern Europe. Graduate students in History, English, Renaissance studies, and related fields at Northern Illinois University are eligible to seek funding to support their participation, since NIU is a member of the Center for Renaissance Studies Consortium.

Here is the announcement from the Center for Renaissance Studies:

Teaching the Early Modern Book:
Ways of Seeing, Ways of Thinking

Research Methods Workshop
Friday, February 11, 2022
Led by Michael F. Suarez, SJ (University of Virginia)

Application Deadline: November 1, 2021

Participants in this full-day workshop will learn through examples about the constituent elements of books and how to “read” their meanings and significance. They will also undertake a series of exercises—which they might make use of for their own courses and demonstrations—in bibliography, the formal analysis of printed artifacts (viz., format, edition, impression, issue, state, etc.) and in book history (viz., authorship, patronage, intellectual property, censorship, etc.).

We welcome applications from faculty and graduate students at any level. Priority will be given to applicants from Center for Renaissance Studies consortium institutions.
