"The Book in Transition, the East and the West" Symposium(Dec, 9. 2017)

2017.11.06

The Integrated Database for Bibliographical and Visual Analyses of Early Printing in Europe project (research project leader: Associate Professor Satoko Tokunaga of the Faculty of Letters) under Keio University's Creativity Initiative wil hold a symposium by a theme as "The Book in Transition, the East and the West"

Historically, the introduction of a new means or material in book production has led to a change in form, use, perception and even meaning of the book. This process, however, is by no means straightforward and varies among communities.

This interdisciplinary/intercultural symposium examines the impact of shifts and developments in the production, reception, and interaction of books in the early modern period, with a focus on the moments when typography was introduced to the Eastern and Western cultures, respectively.
