The Book as Object: Workshop for Schools

Workshop for students in years 11, 12 or 13 with Dr Jane Rickard (English) and Ellie Johnson (Educational Engagement)

Date: 14-10-2015
Time: 13:00 - 16:00

This interactive workshop will enable participants to explore a selection of books published from the 17th to the 21st centuries, which experiment with form and the physical properties of the printed page. It will consider how certain books depend for some of their effects on being experienced as physical objects and therefore cannot be successfully translated into digital form. Aimed at year 11, 12, and 13 pupils from local schools, the session will highlight what always has been and remains special about books.

Places are limited and restricted to pupils in years 11, 12, and 13.

Location: Laidlaw Room, Laidlaw Library
Cost: FREE via Schools
