Dr. Sara Miglietti is a Senior Lecturer in Cultural and Intellectual History at the Warburg Institute, London. Her research mainly deals with the history of moral, political, and natural philosophy in the longue durée, with a particular focus on the 16th and 17th centuries. She is especially interested in the circulation, reception, and reuse of texts and ideas across geographical and linguistic borders, and in the afterlife of classical ideas in the early modern period. She studies these processes through a combination of close textual analysis, material book history (for instance marginalia and other forms of annotation), and translation and reception studies.
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. In its master classes, field leaders give vivid, hands-on demonstrations of their analytical methods, using manuscripts, books, and other media from Princeton University Library’s department of Rare Books and Special Collections.
