Book as Object

Date: Wednesday 3rd February 2016

Workshop Leaders: Professor James Carley and Dr Ryan Perry

Location: Canterbury Cathedral Library and Archives

Within the reading rooms of Canterbury Cathedral Library and Archives, participants will be introduced to a rich resource of items which date back to the 8th century. The material of the codex can reveal much about its history and use. This workshop will therefore consider manuscripts and rare books as physical objects. The session will further discuss the many various ways of investigating a book as an artefact, rather than solely as a receptacle of text.
