Doctoral Candidate Lacy Gillette and Doctoral Student Emily White Participate in Newberry Library Workshop

Published February 17, 2022

On February 11, 2022, PhD candidate Lacy Gillette and doctoral student Emily White traveled to Chicago to participate in “Teaching the Early Modern Book: Ways of Seeing, Ways of Thinking” at the Newberry Library. Led by Michael F. Suarez, Director of the Rare Book School at the University of Virginia, the workshop provided hands on training and exercises in examining printed books and their constituent elements from the Newberry’s collection. Lacy and Emily were among 15 advanced graduate students and early career researchers who participated in the full-day workshop that provided collaborative approaches for understanding the history of the book and the ways books function as historical objects.

Thanks to FSU’s membership in the Newberry Center for Renaissance Studies Consortium, our students have access to the Newberry collection in the fields of late medieval, Renaissance, and early modern studies (c. 1300-1750), as well as opportunities to participate in educational programs run out of the Newberry Library and the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C.
