ABA-IES Seminar: Before the Collection

 08/05/2018 – 08/05/2018 Dr. Kirsten MacLeod and Dr. Anke Timmermann: Before the Collection: Two perspectives on forming and working with collections.

Kirsten MacLeod is a lecturer in English Literature at Newcastle University whose most recent publication is a major cultural and bibliographic study of American little magazines of the 1890s. She brings the perspectives of an academic, librarian, and collector to her research and will be talking about how this intersection of interests has been essential in recuperating and defining a largely neglected and unknown field of late-nineteenth century American print culture.
Anke Timmermann is a historian of science-turned-antiquarian bookseller. As a manuscript scholar she worked on the history of alchemy and medicine, and in her final academic appointment as Munby Fellow in Bibliography at Cambridge, she re-discovered previously un- or misrecorded alchemical texts and images in Cambridge collections. She will talk about her experiences with collections as a scholar, and explain how, after joining the book trade, her understanding of the history of manuscripts, books, and collections has changed - and with it her approach to researching books and their stories.
All meetings are from 6 PM to 8 PM in Senate House Room G35.
