The Identity Engine: Printing and Publishing in the Creation of the Knowledge Economy


Tuesday, June 5, 2007 | 4:00 PM | 135 Humanities Instructional Building | Event flyer | Listen to podcast

Adrian Johns
discusses notions of skill and artisanal autonomy in the period from roughly 1780 to 1850, during the great technological shift that saw mechanization introduced to the printing and publishing industries. He will approach these notions via a set of confrontations between these industries and Charles Babbage, the Victorian computer pioneer, whose computer designs incorporated attempts to deal with problems that were essentially those of the book trade and, thus, traditional problems of artisanship. Adrian Johns is Professor of History at the University of Chicago. He is the author of The Nature of the Book: Print and Knowledge in the Making (University of Chicago Press, 1998).
Co-sponsored by the UCI Humanities Center.
