Organised by Kathleen Lynch and Owen Williams, Executive Director and Associate Director of Scholarly Programs for the Folger Institute, respectively, and Elisa Oh (Associate Professor of English at Howard University). The summer intensive skills course offered to help early-stage graduate students develop a set of research-oriented literacies as they explore the Folger’s rich collections. With the guidance of visiting faculty and Folger staff, up to two dozen participants examined bibliographical tools and their logics to hone their early modern book description skills, and improve their understanding of the cultural and technological histories of texts. Participants were able to ask reflexive questions about the nature of primary sources, the collections that house them, and the tools whereby one can access them.
