Sponsored by the RBS-Mellon Fellowship in Critical Bibliography and the National Humanities Center, the first Triangle Book History Symposium will take place on 20-22 April 2017 in the Research Triangle of North Carolina. The symposium brings together a diverse community of scholars and practitioners to share perspectives on the history of the book, broadly conceived. Through shared discussion and site visits to some of the unique collections and studios in the Triangle, the symposium aims to broaden the disciplinary interests of book history and to facilitate new collaborations among its participants, including from the National Humanities Center, NC State University, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Duke University, the Triangle Book Arts community, and beyond.
