A Symposium at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst

Integrative Learning Center, Room S240

Recent scholarship in bibliography and the history of the book has attended to the ways in which bibliographic media resist, defy, and elude uniformity, even under the greatest technological pressures to conform. Whether through variables in the production process or through the vagaries of transmission and consumption, each book carries with it the traces of a unique history. Yet bibliographers and historians of the book have long neglected the role of the visual in these histories, perceiving the pictorial as supplemental to the book, an import from some other medium. At the same time, the book itself has never featured in art history's triumvirate of media: painting, sculpture, and architecture. In the belief that the book itself is an important medium in the history of art, this symposium brings together renowned speakers who explore how the visual and pictorial features of bibliographic media behave (and can be made to behave) in defiant ways.
