Upcoming events: The Islamic Manuscript Association presents “The Value of Old Paper” lecture and the “Introduction to Islamic Codicology” course

In Events,Workshops by AUB Libraries / April 20, 2015 / 0 Comments

The Value of Old Paper
Lecture presented by Professor Jan Just Witkam
22 April 2015, 18:30 Nabil Boustany Auditorium, Van Dyck Building, American University of Beirut

Paper that since the industrial revolution had become a disposable material, made in seemingly inexhaustible quantities, is nowadays becoming a rare commodity in libraries, archives and museums. Attempts to preserve our archives on paper have, for the moment, miserably failed on a world-wide scale.
That brings the question of the value of old paper (if it has any) to the foreground. How can we determine this value, and what is the difference between value and price? Or in other words: do we use our memory in order to retain moments of the past, or is memory in fact the ruthless filter by which most of our history is discarded? The speaker will make an attempt to find his way in the labyrinth of opinions that are available and he will use moments of his own life-long love story with paper as a source of inspiration.

Attendance if free of charge, but registration is advisable. For a more complete lecture summary or to register please visit http://www.islamicmanuscript.org/lectureseries

The Islamic Manuscript Association
