Subject: 	Folger Spring Conference: Further Transactions of the Book

Further Transactions of the Book
A Spring Conference at the Folger Shakespeare Library organized by 
Anthony Grafton (Princeton University) and Ann Blair (Harvard 
University), with Kathleen Lynch (The Folger Institute).

In recent decades, localized studies of the histories of the book have 
proliferated and matured. Attention to the effects of the transmission 
of knowledge in different media has consequently influenced work in many 
scholarly fields. This weekend conference carries forward the 
examinations of the 2001 Folger conference "Transactions of the Book." 
With sponsorship from The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation and the 
Center for the Book at the Library of Congress, it offers a close focus 
on the Continental book trades as well as on the impact of the printed 
book on transnational or international knowledge communities. As was its 
predecessor, this conference is an international gathering of social and 
intellectual historians, literary critics, bibliographers, and others. 
By extending the scope of investigation beyond the widely recognized 
impact of the printing press, the conference encompasses the work of 
influential experts and new perspectives alike to assess current trends 
in light of the evidence of carefully historicized local studies.

Panelists include: Blaise Aguera y Arcas (Princeton), Warren Boutcher 
(Queen Mary University of London), Jorge Ca
