Sambrook Fund Studentship for MA/MRes History of the Book

Tuesday 7 February 2017

The Institute is delighted to announce a new fully funded studentship for one place on our MA/MRes History of the Book programme. The award covers fees in full at the Home/EU rate. The studentship will be offered every year over the next four academic years. 

Our MA/MRes in the History of the Book provides an unrivalled base for the study of a subject that has been the focus of increasing scholarly attention over the past 30 years. Originally considering mainly physical aspects of the book and the details of its manufacture and trade, scholars have come to see the study of the book as an aid to understanding literary texts and as a focus for insight into social, cultural and intellectual processes in history. The course focuses not only books, but also newspapers, magazines, chapbooks and broadsides. Because the book did not begin with the invention of printing, the course will also consider the manuscript period before print--as well as the book in the digital era.
