The Center for Renaissance Studies has hosted an array of History of the Book programs—lecture series, workshops, symposia, and conferences—since the 1990s. These programs provide a forum for recent scholarship on the production and use of books as objects within medieval, Renaissance, and early modern culture, encompassing a wide variety of academic disciplines and theoretical approaches.

All sessions are free and open to the public, but space is limited and registration in advance is required.
