“Events, my dear boy, events”

January 9, 2012

Macmillan said that events were the greatest challenge for the statesman. For the academic, the challenge is fitting them all in.

2012 has started with a great range of seminars and lectures, including:

The Open University Book History and Bibliography Research Seminars. Dr Karin Littau on ‘Subsequent Steps Towards a Media History of the Book’, 11 January.

SCONUL’s Robert Darnton Lecture and Discussion on ‘The Digital Public Library of America: Current Plans and Future Prospects‘, 17 January.

The Open University Book History and Bibliography Research Seminars. Prof. David Finkelstein on ‘Assessing Don McKenzie’s Legacy in the Digital Age: a Case Study’, 18 January.

Birkbeck Early Modern Society. Dr. Emma Smith on ‘Reading Shakespeare’s First Folio‘, 20 January.

UCL’s Inaugural Lecture Series. Professor Claire Warwick on ‘The Monologue in a Crowdsourced World: Have Digital Resources Rendered the Inaugural Lecture Obsolete?‘, 24 January.

Not sure if I’ll make them all – though of course will definitely make the last one.
