VWB Zomeratelier

Next week, on Friday 12 July, the Vlaamse Werkgroep Boekgeschiedenis organises a 'Zomeratelier'. It starts at 15.30h and will end at about 17h. The venue is the Georges Eekhoudkabinet of the Hendrik Conscience Heritage Library (Hendrik Conscienceplein 4, 2000 Antwerp).

Nina Lamal will be talking about handwritten and printed newspapers. She currently works at the History department of Antwerp University as a post-doctoral researcher on the project 'Old vs. new media: handwritten newsletters in the first age of the printed newspaper', funded by FWO (Research Council Flanders).

Marianne Gillion will present her ideas about proofreading music in printed liturgical books. She completed her PhD in musicology at The University of Manchester. As a post-doctoral researcher attached to the department of musicology at Leuven University, she now researches early modern plainchant in printed sources.

Renaud Milazzo will tell us more about book prices in Antwerp (1540-1590) through the examples of Christopher Plantin, Joannes Steelsius, Martinus I Nutius and Jan van der Loe. Renaud Milazzo is Post-doctoral Research Fellow at the EMo Book Trade Project (ERC 694476): The Early Modern Book Trade: An Evidence-based Reconstruction of the Economic and Juridical Framework of the European Book Market at the Università degli Studi di Milano.
