The Columbia Early Modern Seminar, in conjunction with the Rare Book and
Manuscript Library at Columbia University, will be hosting the 2nd
Annual Forms of Early Modern Writing Conference on April 3, 2009. This
year's conference asks scholars from an array of disciplines two crucial
questions: What is your archive? And how do you work inside the archive?
The speakers will present papers which discuss how they use archival
evidence in order to foster a productive interdisciplinary dialogue.

In addition, each paper will be accompanied by an exhibit in the Rare
Book and Manuscript Library, which will be available for viewing the day
of the conference and beyond. The conference website includes full
abstracts and exhibits from the inaugural conference held last year.

The conference is free to all who attend.
