Inhoud
This course provides a knowledge and skills base for RMA-students seeking to work with the early modern printed book in Europa. It gives a general overview of the advent, development and impact of the printing press, and introduces the students to different book historical debates, approaches and research fields. It will also show the importance of book historical research for other fields of early modern history. The course will be built around the three main fields of book historical research (production, distribution and consumption) and will explore, discuss and apply the current standards of research. It will deal, among other things, with the materiality of print, the reconstruction of print runs, the dissemination of knowledge via the printed book and the challenges of reconstructing readership. The course will also elaborate on relevant institutions (research libraries; book historical organisations), electronic tools (bibliographies; databases; search tools) and publications (journals; handbooks).

Please note:
Students from the RMA programme History and Philosophy of Science are welcome to participate in this course: please register in Osiris during the registration period in June. Students who are not admitted to either the RMA programme Ancient, Medieval and Renaissance Studies or the RMA History and Philosophy of Science are in general not permitted to take this course without approval of the course coordinator.

If you are a non-AMR student and wish to follow this course as a Research Master Elective, you can only enroll with consent of the programme coordinator Floris van den Eijnde.

The entrance requirements for Exchange Students will be checked by the International Office and the Programme coordinator. Acceptance is not self-evident.
