Dear colleagues,

If you happen to be in greater Atlanta area, please consider joining us for “Off Script: Global Books and Textual Technologies” symposium, which will be held on 10/4 (F) at Emory University. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

All the best,

Off Script: Global Books and Textual Technologies

The event aims to foster the intellectual community of scholars working on book-related research in the Southeast, a region which, despite strong institutional holdings in a range of fields and areas, has generally been underrepresented in book history. Invited speakers will share current research and model pedagogical applications of critical bibliography in the global history of printing and the book. For further information, contact symposium co-organizers Hwisang Cho (hwisang.cho at emory.edu), Nick Wilding (nwilding at gsu.edu), or Corinna Zeltsman (czeltsman at georgiasouthern.edu).
