Description

This event centres on the theme of 'Animating Books: Rethinking Book History'. The invited guest, Prof. Jennifer Richards (Newcastle University, UK) has taken on this topic in her recent monograph, Voices and Books in the English Renaissance: A New History of Reading (OUP, 2019) and as co-Investigator on the AHRC-funded project 'Voices and Books 1500-1800'. The event will consist of a one-hour lecture by Prof. Richards, followed by a lengthy question time, in the course of which the PhD students will be asked to engage with issues addressed during the lecture (2 hours); and an interactive workshop, led by Prof. Richards. The lecture and the workshop will be devoted to exploring a novel approach to the study of book history-one which considers how voice might animate the material book, even for silent readers.
