Book History for Beginners

This June, the Centre for the History of the Book will be running its first Summer School, called ‘Book History for Beginners’. This course, taught in four distinct and interrelated modules on ‘print culture’, ‘material texts’, ‘publishing history’ and ‘the future of the book’, introduces students to the major debates in book history. It foregrounds the production, promotion, circulation and reception of the material book as a relay of culture and a form of knowledge. It’s aimed at advanced undergraduates. If you take all four modules, you can transfer the credit back to your home university. Alternatively, you can take any one, two or three modules not for credit. Registration is open now, so sign up here!
