The theme of this year’s Book History and Print Culture Graduate Student Colloquium is “Mad, Bad, and Dangerous Texts: Controversies in Reading, Writing, Editing, and Printing.” We invite applications from graduate students, independent scholars, and emerging academics working in any discipline, time period, and geographical region. We hope to explore the ways that print objects have been used to elude and redefine notions of legitimacy. We welcome very broad interpretations of the idea of “danger,” as well as discussions of non-book materials, such as manuscripts, maps, film, or digital documents, that adopt a book history or bibliographic approach.
