The pre-digital worlds are ours to invent. Expect, then, more questions than answers, and more independence than in a regular class-room. Expect also to see your suggestions heard and followed!
The coherence of the project is the notion of book culture and the restitution of contextualizations in an age where books and manuscripts are often virtual. The outcomes will be a familiarization with the concepts and language of codicology, history of the book, and “new bibliography”; it will also provide a theoretical and practical frame to understand the digital book as a new object of book culture. Methodology will be a combination of lectures, debates, and workshops, with a final collective project consisting in a non-virtual exhibition and the description of what would have the corresponding virtual exhibition looked like.
