Book and Letter Making Lab: Day One –Writing and Letterlocking Technology
Wednesday, January 12, 2022 at 1:00pm to 4:00pmVirtual Event
Book and Letter Making Lab is a three-day interactive exploration of books and correspondence, including talks, workshops, and making in MIT's Wunsch Conservation Lab. With inspiration from MIT Libraries' historical and contemporary distinctive collections and special guests' help, we will experiment with book, print, writing, and publishing technologies.
Day One will focus on creating, decorating, sharing, and collective documentation through the media of writing and letterlocking. Instructors: Jana Dambrogio; Dr. Nur Sobers Khan, Director of the Aga Khan Documentation Center; Holly Jackson '22, algorithm engineer; and Sheree Watson, MD, a pediatrics specialist with interest in diversity and representation, who works on research and letter-writer identification (mainly focusing on individuals from marginalized communities) among other realms for the Unlocking History Research Group.
Anyone wishing to attend all three sessions must register for each session separately.
