Beyond the Text: Literary Archives in the 21st Century
April 26–27, 2013
The two-day symposium will bring together literary and information science scholars, historians, curators, archivists, writers, and publishers. Panelists will explore the collaborations between library professionals and scholars around use of manuscript material in teaching and research, the intersections between archival and literary theory, and the impact of the changing shape of archives on institutional stewardship and scholarship.
