Implementing New Knowledge Environments ( is a major collaborative research initiative to study the history and future of reading platforms and devices. INKE aims to inform and influence new developments in the electronic reading environment by drawing on the achievements and failures of the long history of reading technology from manuscript to print. This talk will present the work of one of the sub-groups of this initiative, the textual studies group, and its central project, ArchBook, an open access knowledge base of the features and functions of manuscript and printed material that enabled and facilitated reading before the digital age.

All are welcome.
