LALW302 History of the Book 3 cr.


This course examines the relationship between how texts have been written and what they say during the millennia from the cuneiform tablet to the iPad. The course examines the relationship between spoken and written language, between libraries and scholarship, and between text for eyes and text for ears. It considers text-centric and image-centric book making as expressions and creators of human history. The course examines the possible future of books.
