This conference, held under the auspices of the American Antiquarian Society's Program in the History of the Book in American Culture, will examine how the verbal arts of print, manuscript, and performance reflected and influenced each other, often in unpredictable ways, in pre-twentieth-century America. The highly fluid boundaries of print, manuscript, and performance had profound implications for the development of American literature and politics.
More than two dozen speakers will explore these issues in a variety of panel presentations.
