CHB Training Workshops
This week I’m going to the University of Dundee to help lead the third in a series of three doctoral training workshops on Book History which the Centre for the History of the Book is running in collaboration with the University of Stirling and the University of Dundee. In December we held a workshop on the history of reading in Stirling, in January we held on in Edinburgh on bibliography and textual scholarship, and in April one in Dundee on manuscript, print and digital culture. We also organised a field trip to Innerpeffray Library, Scotland’s oldest lending library. You can see more details here.
