Description


Rheagan Martin (Warburg Institute): 'Torn Parchment and Painted Coins: Illuminated Claims to Accuracy in Venetian Printed Classical Texts'

The Book and Print Initiative was founded in 2017 to bring together scholars of books, printed material, and printing, at all career stages, across the School of Advanced Study (SAS). It is an umbrella for new and existing projects. As part of the UK’s research centre for the humanities, it provides a national focal point for the interdisciplinary, global study of word, image, and other written content from before the print era (manuscripts, palaeography, codicology) through to its future (digital humanities).

The Book and Print Initiative unites the study of printed material as a physical object with the information it contains and its influence on society. Rejecting the conventional limits of ‘text and image’, its inclusive remit spans artefacts of bindings to zoological illustrations.

The Book and Print Initiative’s directors are Raphaële Mouren (Warburg Institute) and Elizabeth Savage (Institute of English Studies). 

THIS EVENT WILL NOW TAKE PLACE ONLINE VIA ZOOM. PLEASE BOOK IN ADVANCE.
