The Program is organized by David Scott Kastan, Co-Chair (George M. Bodman Professor of English Literature, Yale Department of English); Kathryn James, Co-Chair (Curator for Early Modern Books & Manuscripts and the Osborn Collection, Beinecke Library); Andrew Brown (Ph.D. candidate, Yale Department of English); and Eve Houghton (Yale ’17).
To foster discussion across the many related fields practicing book history, the Yale Program in the History of the Book is organized around two events with each speaker: a public lecture and, on the following day, a seminar discussion centering on our guests’ work in progress. We also hold an annual symposium in the fall semester.
Papers are pre-circulated in the week preceding the seminar. To be added to the seminar list, please contact Eve Houghton (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Andrew Brown (email@example.com).
