Doctoral Training Workshops 2018: The 21st-Century Book Historian

A series of three half-day events for doctoral students on the history of authorship, printing and publishing.

The 21st-Century Book Historian is a series of three half-day events which aim to give doctoral students working on book history (broadly defined) the basic training they need in the history of authorship, printing and publishing.

As in previous years, the series is a collaboration between the Universities of Stirling, Edinburgh and Dundee, supported by the Scottish Graduate School of the Arts and Humanities (SGSAH).

Each event will be free of charge and open to all PhD students. Students are welcome to attend one or all events, but booking is essential as spaces are limited (book now for the first event and second event).

Funding is available to support travel to each event for PhD students based at other SGSAH institutions.

Programme

This event will take place in April 2018 at the University of Dundee. It will consider different types of authorship, with a lecture by Daniel Cook on “secondary authorship” and a discussion on collaboration within and beyond the academic setting, featuring a Creative Writing lecturer and practising poet/artist.
