Media in Transition

The Book as Material Object and Vehicle of Content from the Middel Ages to the Seventeenth Century

The seminar held at Aarhus University, 26-27 November 2010 will adress the material form of text from Medieval and Renaissance manuscripts through incunables to the print culture of later periods. Lectures will focus on:

  • Visual aspects of the book: Development in book bindings, script, and layout, and the influence of paratex tual practices
  • The use of books - reading praxis, and the book as performative action
  • The role of manuscript writing culture in the formation of the printed book
