Back to "Spring 2019" courses

How do 17th-century readers think of printed books and libraries? And how do 21st-century readers spin the text in the digital age? This course considers the Quixotic confrontation of materiality and abstract ideas, of objects and digital surrogates. By means of close readings, digital resources, rare books and objects from the museum, we will explore this iconic text to better understand both cultural moments. The visual, tactile and interactive experiences will help us appreciate the reading experience both then and now.
