Sydney Shep has lined up two intriguing offerings for the Wellington Rare Books Summer School this coming summer. The first option focuses on ‘The World of Altered Books’ and engages with the physicality of printed books to create new meanings. Taught by Paul Thompson, the class repurposes all kinds of print, both rare and unnoticed. It promises to be an engaging exploration that takes advantage of Wellington’s rich local resources.
The second option is taught by a German expert with training in classics here at Otago, Thomas Koentges will teach ‘Exploring Digital Humanities: A hands-on introduction to data-driven research’, an area that offers increasing insights for Book History (as well as many other humanist disciplines).
Descriptions of both offerings and details on how to obtain more information are listed in the attached PDF.
