Public conference by Roger Chartier

The Institut d'histoire du livre (Lyon, France) is pleased to announce that, as part of its Book History Workshop, the eminent French cultural historian Roger Chartier will give a public lecture entitled "Don Quixote in the printing shop".

Roger Chartier is a leading French historian of written culture and directeur d'études at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris. Since 1969, he has lectured and published on the relationship between the material history of institutions and the embodied practices that both animate and survive these institutions -- in particular, early modern techniques of reading, disseminating and collecting printed information. Recognized internationally for his work on the history of the book, printing and reading, Roger Chartier is a member the advisory board of various research institutes working in the field of publishing history. His books and articles have been widely translated. His most recent English-language publications include Publishing Drama in Early Modern Europe (London, The British Library, 1999) and A History of Reading in the West (edited with Guglielmo Cavallo: Oxford, Polity, 1999).



Several places are still available on the Institut d'histoire du livre's Book History Workshop which will run from the 14th to 17th October 2002.

The Book History Workshop offers three advanced courses aimed at the many specialists who encounter questions related to book and printing history in the course of their work: researchers, teachers, archivists, librarians, antiquarian booksellers, designers, etc. The courses are taught in French or in English by leading international specialists and are approached from both theoretical and practical points of view through illustrated lectures, discussions and the study of original documents. The collections of Lyons City Library and the Lyons Printing Museum provide an important source of original documents for study.
