Each year the University of Toronto’s Book History and Print Culture program hosts a graduate student colloquium. The colloquium is a one-day annual event which invites graduate students, emerging scholars, independent scholars, and keynote speakers to bring a multidisciplinary approach to that year’s topic.

This year we are proud to announce colloquium topic Mad, Bad, and Dangerous Texts: Controversies in Reading, Writing, Editing, and Printing. The event will be held March 23, 2019 in the Upper Library of Massey College.

We are pleased to announce that this year’s keynote speaker is David Fernández. He will be speaking on depictions of monsters in Early Modern books in relation to his current exhibit De monstris: An Exhibition of Monsters and the Wonders of the Human Imagination at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library.
