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.
