Australasian Rare Book School - Scott Schofield: Inherited Innovation - Reflecting on the History of the Book in a Digital Age

decoration30 Jan. 2017|03 Feb. 2017
This course examines the continuities and discontinuities of past and present media. Questions to be considered include: What might the study of mise-en-page teach us about our current experiments in interface design? How do past practices in reading and searching compare with how we navigate today’s paper and digital environments? What is the history of social annotation and how does it inform current initiatives in crowd sourcing and social media? How does our conception of encoding change when situated within the long history of print production?

Rather than separating paper from digital, this course will consider both together, often working with one media in the morning and the other in the afternoon.

All classes offer a list of advance readings that students are expected to complete prior to beginning the class. Tuition for the week is NZ$ 1000 (c. AUS$ 940; US$ 685; £ 470; € 600). Applications close 1 November 2016.
