Virtual Lecture: "The Book: The Past"
“The Book: Past, Present, and Future” is a virtual lecture series exploring the forms and purposes of books as methods of communication. Scholars with expertise in each aspect – how books have been used in the past, how society uses books now, and the possibilities of the future – will share with audiences the origins and use of these objects.
Dr. Nick Wilding of Georgia State University will explore how books developed and were used over time. After Dr. Wilding's talk, program participants are invited to discuss how past use and production of books affected how we learn and document information. This is the first in a series of three events.
Funding for the series is provided by a grant from the Georgia Humanities Council.
