Keynote Speaker: Associate Professor Nicholas Dames, Departments of Comparative Literature and English, Columbia University

The Bancroft Library and the Departments of English and Comparative Literature at UC Berkeley invites scholars of all disciplines to submit papers to the History of the Book and Reading Townsend Center Working Group conference. This conference will explore what comprises the field we call “History of the Book.”

How do reading and writing practices inflect or constitute meaning?
How do changes in book media—from wax tablets, to scrolls, to codices, to electronic texts and beyond—inform structures of reading and perhaps change what it means to read?
What do print and material cultures across periods and geographies reveal about texts?
How might intellectual property relate to its physical media, particularly in terms of piracy and copyright practices?
What are the effects of the spaces and conditions of reading—in, on, and around the page?
