Workshop Charisma of the Book: Global Perspectives

By Invitation Only


Location Abu Dhabi

This workshop brings together scholars, artists, and curators in the fields of religion, literature, art history, and media, to develop global perspectives on the history and future of the book. How might the concept of charisma illuminate the materialization—and marginalization—of the book's cultural status and social power in the digital age?
