The Book: Material Histories and Digital Futures

A four-week institute for twenty-five college and university faculty on the history and technologies of the book.

The proposal seeks funding for a four-week summer institute for college and university faculty to be held at Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) from June 18 to July 13, 2018. The Institute will consider the history of the book from material and embodied perspectives, studying how new and old forms of book technology and circulation impact the creation of and access to humanities scholarship and knowledge.
