March meeting in Special Collections
Posted on February 28, 2013
Our March meeting will take place on Monday the 4th at 10am.
Dr. Conway has generously offered to let us meet in Special Collections, and Sara Stilley has kindly agreed to help us present some materials for our discussion.
For the meeting, please read Borges’ “On the Cult of Books”. It is a little over 3 pages, but it is a wonderful introduction into the idea of “the book”. A copy can be downloaded here (password protected), and it is also available in A Book of the Book.
Rebecca will be presenting some materials from Special Collections to complicate the boundaries and definitions of ” the book”. Our discussion will help us negotiate this tricky term in defining the aims of our group, as well as in our own research.
