Primary Instructor:

We all read, sometimes to command a subject, sometimes to take imaginative journeys. We do the same when we write. What do books reading, and writing mean in our lives? We will examine how the book as physical artifact has shaped the way in which we read. We will investigate representations of reading in various historical contexts and the cultural prescriptions they convey. We will survey numerous sources for evidence of the practices and preferences of actual readers. We will also address current debates in the history of the book, including the relation between print and digital. We will ask ourselves what it means to be reading and writing in the midst of a digital revolution.
