Description:
Books today serve as a dominant form for disseminating and consuming information. But the book—as a platform for writing and reading—is relatively new, and it may one day become obsolete. The bound and printed paper book was preceded by tablets, scrolls and manuscripts, and it may become a historical relic as electronic media takes over. How have material changes in the way texts are written and read had an impact on the way we understand Jewish history, identity, practice, and culture? Explore this rich topic with historian Brian Amkraut and cultural anthropologist Alanna Cooper.
