Book Arts

Seventh Annual Book Arts Lecture: A Conversation about Books as Texts, Forms and Culture


Thursday April 24, 2014
7:00 PM
In this Book Arts lecture, Rutgers University Professor Marija Dalbello will discuss the history of the book as a field concerned with the nature of the book, the relationships constituted by texts and their producers, readers, and in mapping the geographies of the book.

She will outline the scope of this field, its connection to book arts and textual art, and its origin in bibliography and sociology of reading. She will demonstrate how books and texts can be studied as material and aesthetic forms as well as protagonists in social histories. She will provide insights on her journey as a scholar and teacher in the field of book history and visual culture.

The Lecture is free, refreshments will be served and the program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

Marija Dalbello is an associate professor of information studies at Rutgers University and director of doctoral studies in the School of Communication and Information, where she teaches courses on book and information history, social epistemology and theories of knowledge. She co-directed the Rutgers Seminar in the History of the Book (2006-2012). Her edited books include Print Culture in Croatia: The Canon and the Borderlands (2006), co-edited with Tinka Kati; Visible Writings: Cultures, Forms, Readings (2011) with Mary Shaw, and A History of Modern Librarianship: Constructing the Heritage of Western Cultures (2014) with Pamela Spence Richards and Wayne Wiegand.
