Fall 2018 CMRS Symposium - Books and Their Use[r]s

Gregory the Amanuensis

Books and Their Use[r]s: A Symposium

Friday-Saturday, October 19-20, 2018

Thompson Library, Rooms 202 and 204

The Fall 2018 Symposium on the subject of 'Books and their Use[r]s’ is an opportunity for scholars to reflect on and exchange ideas about how and to what ends people have acquired, collected, organized, marked, common-placed, shared, disposed of, and otherwise engaged with the books they bought, stole, or borrowed. The talks will address not only British materials, but wider European and New World cultures.  We also aim to stimulate discussion among specialists in book history across national/regional, as well as traditional period, divides.

Speakers: 

Ryan Giles, Indiana University

Glenda Goodman, The University of Pennsylvania

Elizabeth Kolkovich, The Ohio State University, Mansfield

Leslie Lockett, The Ohio State University

Aaron Pratt, The University of Texas

Mark Rankin, James Madison University

 

Keynote Address, Earle Havens (John Hopkins): "Using Montaigne: Lord William Howard's Reading Machine"
