Harvard-Yale Conference in Book History, May 5, 2014, Linsly-Chittenden Hall
Two members of our research group, Monika Barget and David de Boer, took part in this year’s “Conference in Book History” at Yale University.
This conference was sponsored by the Yale University Department of English, the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and the Seminar in the History of the Book at the Mahindra Humanities Center, Harvard.
In the panel “Editing History”, David de Boer presented a censored historiographical work from the 17th century Dutch Republic and discussed questions of authorship, objectivity and censorship in times of revolt.
The panel, which also included a talk by Devin Fitzgerald (Harvard) on Ming history, was chaired by Monika Barget.
