Just as manuscripts were mutable, their material form and constituent parts manipulable, so too, printed books could be adapted to need or use, their format altered to fit a wide spectrum of functions, in response to contingent circumstances of all kinds. This colloquium will explore the many different ways printed and manuscript books were customized from the fifteenth through the eighteenth century. As bibliographers have amply documented, this customization occurred at every stage of a book’s life: printers and publishers often produced variable copies of the books they promulgated; patrons and proprietors intervened in the assembling or reassembling the books made for them; and individual owners of all kinds frequently altered the physical structure of their books by inserting, interpolating, subtracting, deleting, rearranging, and correcting texts and images alike. We will consider all these forms of customization and more, but the emphasis of our discussions will fall on the hermeneutic functions of the modifications made by makers and users to the structure of their manuscripts and books.

07:00PM 09:00PM CANCELED - Close Escapes: Four Poets on Leaving Georgia: University Event Topic: HumanitiesSchool: Emory CollegeDepartment / Organization: Fox Center for Humanistic InquiryMeeting Organizer/Sponsor: Fox Center & Georgia HumanitiesSpeaker/Presenter: Dr. Lizzy LeRudEvent Open To: All (Public)Cost: FreeRegistration / R.S.V.P. link: fchi.emory.eduContact Name: Fox Center for Humanistic InquiryContact Email: foxcenter@emory.eduLink: http://fchi.emory.edu/home/documents/GEORGIA%20SEMINARS/CloseEscapes-LeRudUPDATED.pdfBorn in Georgia, poets John Rollins Ridge, Conrad Aiken, and Alice Walker all experienced moments of extreme trauma that pushed them out of their home state. Born in Florida, Chelsea Rathburn moved to Georgia in 2001, returning to a place that had once been her family’s longtime home. Just months ago, Rathburn became Georgia’s newest poet laureate. These departures (and, for some, homecomings) marked significant events in these poets’ lives that correspond in turn with some of the state’s most pivotal moments: Indian Removal, the rise of Jim Crow laws, the Great Migration, and contemporary debates about women’s rights as mothers. How does leaving Georgia and leaving for Georgia influence these writers and their work? How do a state’s policies and communities shape the lives of its writers? This seminar will be moderated by Lizzy LeRud, scholar of American poetry and poetics, a former Fox Center fellow who is currently a Marrion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow at Georgia Institute of Technology. During the final seminar session, Lizzy will be joined by Chelsea Rathburn for a conversation focused on Rathburn’s newest book, Still Life with Mother and Knife (2019). This seminar will meet at the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry from 7-9pm on four Thursday evenings sessions during the spring 2020 semester: March 26, April 9, 16, and 23. + Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry<br>1635 N.
