What, actually, is “book history”?

9 June, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

The focus of this lunchtime session will be a question raised in the initial #BookHistShef meeting: what, actually, is book history?

The event will begin with a series of flash presentations encompassing personal responses to the question, whether with reference to a definition that can be unpicked, or a paragraph on the subject from scholarship, an elevator pitch of a current research project, or any other stimulus. Pitching provisional answers to this open question should provoke enough questions to get the discussion going. To volunteer as a presenter, email Seán Williams.

The session is open to everyone, and presenting is not a requirement!
