Description: In collaboration with the Bard Graduate Center, the Folger Institute will host a day-long workshop on early modern material studies. Topics to be discussed may include books-as-artifacts, relations of texts and practices as exemplified by food knowledge, collecting practices and institutions, craft and design, and natural historical objects. The different perspectives on material culture of the anthropologist, art historian, archaeologist, literary critic, and historian will be highlighted.

The workshop participants examined multiple holdings in the Folger collections, including this 1615 embroidered binding, from the Robert S. Pirie collection.

Organizers: Andrew Morrall and Deborah Krohn of the Bard Graduate Center, and Kathleen Lynch and Owen Williams of the Folger Institute.
