The Material Cultures of the Book Working Group is happy to announce that we have received a UCR Mellon Workshop Grant for the 2013-2014 academic year!

The title of the project is, “The Material Cultures of the Book,” and this grant will allow us to conduct workshops with scholars from a variety of fields to discuss the materiality of book history and print culture.

The Mellon Workshop Grants are made possible by the UCR Center for Ideas and Society, and many thanks go out to all of the group members, both faculty and graduate students, for putting together a great proposal.

Stay tuned for upcoming workshops, presentations, and talks beginning this fall.
