The American Antiquarian Society (AAS), through its Program in the History of the Book in American Culture, offers a summer seminar in the interdisciplinary field of book history. Held annually since 1985, these seminars are intended for literary scholars and historians (including advanced graduate students), librarians, archivists, and bibliographers, and other scholars for whom study of the interpretation of the cultural role of books and other forms of printed material would inform their dissertation-writing, writing for publication, and teaching. The 2007 seminar is entitled "Re-Reading the Early Republic: From Crèvecoeur to Cooper," and will be held at the Society in Worcester, Mass., June 18-22. Wayne Franklin, professor of English and American Studies, University of Connecticut at Storrs, is the seminar director.
