Led by Michael F. Suarez, S.J., University of Virginia
Center for Renaissance Studies Programs

Participants in this full-day workshop will learn through examples about the constituent elements of books and how to “read” their meanings and significance. They will also undertake a series of exercises—which they might make use of for their own courses and demonstrations—in bibliography, the formal analysis of printed artifacts (viz., format, edition, impression, issue, state, etc.) and in book history (viz., authorship, patronage, intellectual property, censorship, etc.).
