New Series of Book/Arts Workshops

Published: November 19, 2015

The Southern California Book History Consortium would like to share a new plan for the coming year. In addition to sponsoring works-in-progress, SCBHC will run a series of Book/Arts field trips and hands-on-workshops for participants. With continuing support from UCLA’s Center for 17th- & 18th-Century Studies and new support from the UCLA Department of English, these regional excursions will be subsidized. This effort incorporates our region’s vibrant Book/Arts culture into the group’s purview.

Please mark the following events on your calendar:

  • November 30, 2015: Jordan Wingate, works-in-progress
  • February 6, 2016: International Printing History Museum
  • February 12–14, 2016: Antiquarian Book Fair
  • March 4, 2016: Book/Arts Workshop
  • April 1, 2016: Book/Arts Keynote
  • April 29, 2016: Book/Arts Workshop
  • May 20, 2016: Aardvark Press
  • June 3, 2016: Book/Arts Workshop

Additionally, there are openings in the 2016 calendar year for works-in-progress. If you have interests in book history, manuscript studies, print culture studies, history of reading, or other related endeavors, we invite you to present works-in-progress (including first drafts, outlines for future research, seminar papers, and/or collections of primary materials).
