Faculty of Arts & Science
Collaborative Graduate Program in Book History and Print Culture
The Collaborative Graduate Program in Book History and Print Culture (BHPC) is the only truly interdisciplinary book history program in Canada, drawing on disciplines from across Arts & Science, from Art and Religion to English and History, as well as the Faculty of Information and Massey College. A graduate-level program, Book History (also known as Textual Studies, Print Culture or Sociology of the Text) creates and applies knowledge of the physical, cultural and theoretical aspects of the written word, including manuscript, print and digital media, along with associated practices of authorship, reading and collecting, within different disciplines. Your gift will support our visiting lecture series (Toronto Centre for the Book) and the J.R. de J. Jackson Memorial Lecture. It will also help establish a visiting fellowship program to bring distinguished scholars to U of T for short periods of research and teaching, and fund other scholarly and outreach activities, including archival work within Canada and internationally by our research students.
