History of the Book and Reading

The History of the Book working group, founded in 2009, is fundamentally dedicated to the exploration of the nexus between the material text and its interpretation. Group members, who come from many different departments, work on a variety of subjects: medieval scribal culture, the rise of lending libraries, the dissemination of ancient texts in the modern world, the history of philosophy, and evolution of reading and writing technologies.
