Varieties of Textual Experience: A Symposium on the Material Text Across the Disciplines (RBS-Mellon Symposium)
1 April 2016
Time: 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
Location: Miller Library, Colby College
Presented by: The Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship in Critical Bibliography at Rare Book School, the Colby Center for the Arts and Humanities, and the Colby College English Department
This one-day symposium will bring together scholars from across the humanities to discuss the role of the material text in their research and scholarly practice. The bibliographic scholar D.F. McKenzie famously asserted that the form of a text inevitably shapes its meaning; from contemporary internet cultures to medieval manuscripts, how do we account for this in the specific archives, media, and disciplinary contexts in which we conduct our work?
This event has been generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship in Critical Bibliography at Rare Book School, the Colby Center for the Arts and Humanities, and the Colby English Department.
