Presented by: The Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in Critical Bibliography at Rare Book School, with additional support from Denison Library and the Scripps College English Department

Humanities research requires the study of books, but we often confront the limits of this category. This 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?

Organized by RBS-Mellon Fellow Marissa Nicosia (Scripps College, English) and featuring (among others) RBS-Mellon Fellows Glenda Goodman and Rachael Scarborough King. See the event website for additional details.

This event is sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in Critical Bibliography at Rare Book School, with additional support from Denison Library and the Scripps College English Department.
