The book territorializes and deterritorializes. It binds together materials, technologies, and labor from far and abroad--a letter from Goa, an editor in Rome, Chinese paper, German engravers, Italian leather, English capital--only to be dispersed and reconstituted, from hand to hand, collection to collection, dismembered, reassembled, and reinvented for new audiences in new locations.

"Animating the Early Modern Stage," ACLA Seminar, July 6-9, 2016, Utrecht This seminar will explore what theater and the performing arts contribute to early modern theories of life, the soul, and autonomy. At a time when European philosophers debated the distinction between material bodies and lively bodies, between organic machines and ensouled beings, artists and performers innovated new techniques for bringing stage objects to life through mechanical or human manipulation. We invite contributions that examine a wide array of techniques for “animation” in theater and the performing arts of the sixteenth through eighteenth centuries, from any national/cultural perspective.
