What is a Book? A Symposium on Bibliographic Research
Friday 4/17, 1-5:30
Holbein Room
Ella Strong Denison Library
Scripps College

Humanities research requires the study of books, but we often confront the limits of this category. This afternoon symposium will bring together area scholars, librarians, and students enrolled in the Scripps College course ENGL 197 to consider the question: What is a book?

This event was organized by Marissa Nicosia (Scripps, English) and sponsored by The Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in Critical Bibliography at Rare Book School with additional support from the Denison Library and the English Department.
