Fall 2011 Athenæum Series: From Gutenberg to Google: Southeast’s History of the Book

Please join us on Wednesday, December 7, 2011 at noon in Kent Library for the Fall 2011 Athenaeum Series Presentation “From Gutenberg to Google: Southeast’s History of the Book”.

UI 456: History of the Book is a new interdisciplinary seminar and hands-on workshop that offers students the chance to study the influence of printing on the formation of world cultures up to the digital age.  Dr. Kathryne Beebe and her students will discuss how they are using the approaches of history, studio art, and art history to explore the physical technologies of the written and printed word.  In this Athenaeum presentation, this semester’s students will present their findings and their final book-making projects, all of which use one or more of these technologies to probe the boundaries between oral and written, manuscript and print, self and “other”.

Everyone is welcome, and snacks will be provided.
