Opportunity: NEH Summer Institute for College and University Teachers

About the opportunity:

The Book: Material Histories and Digital Futures will explore how the book’s evolving material qualities promote and circulate cultural knowledge. As Nicole Howard, in The Book: The Life Story of a Technology, writes, “No other technology in human history has had the impact of [the book].” In addition to looking at the history of the book, we will also consider the present moment of the book’s evolution as a prologue to humanist innovation, as developing technologies, digital and multimodal, offer a host of new forms and distribution channels. We will explore how transformations in the book can change interactions between bodies of knowledge and individual human bodies. The four-week Institute will take place June 18 to July 13, 2018 at Salt Lake Community College (SLCC).
