Book Studies at Goucher College


The Book Studies Minor

The Book Studies minor explores the past, present, and future of the book.  Faculty and staff from the departments of Art and Art History, English, History, and Goucher's Library currently teach a variety of courses on the history, design, and archaeology of the book; bibliography; reception studies; and the history of libraries.  Book Studies courses not only involve materials housed in Goucher's Special Collections, but also engage world-class collections housed in nearby libraries and museums, including the Library of Congress, the Walters Art Museum, the Johns Hopkins libraries, and the Folger Shakespeare Library. Through hands-on experience with books and archival materials, students not only explore books in their many forms, but broadly, they gain a more nuanced understanding of the cultural, social, political, visual, and literary dimensions of the book and its fundamental role in shaping the transmission of knowledge over time and across cultures.
