For more than half a century, Princeton has been a center for the historical study of books, media and their readers. The Committee for the Study of Books and Media (CSBM) gives scholars and students from many disciplines a forum where they can follow new developments in this vital, interdisciplinary field. Its workshop brings eminent senior scholars and brilliant young ones to campus so that Princeton graduate students can meet them and discuss their current work.

Valeria López Fadul is an Assistant Professor of History and Latin American Studies. She studies the intellectual and cultural history of colonial Latin America and early modern Spain, with a focus on the philosophy of language and the history of science.
