Chartier_posterOn September 17-18, the EUI will host the conference The Author’s Hand and the Printer’s Mind: Towards a Connected History of Textual Practices (Teatro, Badia Fiesolana, 9h-18h), organized by the Chair of the History of Science at the Department of History and Civilization, Professor Stéphane Van Damme. In honor of the leading cultural and book historian Roger Chartier, professor at the Collège de France, the conference emerges from, and takes the name of, his most recent publication, The Author’s Hand and the Printer’s Mind (Cambridge: Polity Press, 2014). It will bring together book, literary, and art historians, as well as historians of science and knowledge in an exploration of the materiality of texts in the early modern period.

Part of the conference will be live-tweeted under hashtag #EUIChartier

EUI | History of Science

The History of Science working group is a non-official, student-led group aimed at bringing together PhD researchers with similar interests in History of Science. Thus, the group’s members engage with a wide coverage of topics ranging from natural history over imperial science to amateur inventions, from seventeenth-century France to Interwar Russia. In our blog, we wish to bring forward the diversity of research in History of Science, to seek for a broader understanding of history of science and review available instruments, which includes reading of classics but also examining recent methodological approaches. As a student-led project, we wish to maintain a wide scope of the published material, with a nevertheless strong emphasis on the rich and necessary links with other historical fields, and with history in general.
