Toronto and the Book
2014 BHPC Graduate Student Colloquium Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Toronto Centre for the Book March 28-29th 2014 – Massey College
The 2014 Book History and Print Culture Graduate Student Colloquium, “Toronto and the Book,” marks the 20th anniversary of the Toronto Centre for the Book (TCB). In light of the TCB’s ongoing commitment to interdisciplinary research, collaboration, and exchange, the BHPC Graduate Student Colloquium invites proposals related to ‘the book’ broadly defined for a graduate student panel. In an effort to explore all the aspects of the book as a material and cultural object, we welcome contributions from current students in all disciplines — and particularly from outside the realm of the Humanities.
This year’s event will take place on March 28th and 29th, 2014 at Massey College.
Topics to consider include, but are not limited to:
The city as a book;
Urban reading practices;
Cities as archives;
The history of printing in Toronto;
Digital humanities in the city and communication practices;
About the Toronto Centre for the Book Since its inception in 1994, the TCB has welcomed a variety of speakers to its acclaimed lecture series. In 2009, these became the lecture series of the graduate Book History and Print Culture Program, which is now a leading international forum for the multidisciplinary investigation of manuscript, print, and digital text and cultures. The TCB’s commitment to interdisciplinary work sustains this vibrant series for all interested members at the University of Toronto and among the wider Toronto community.
