An interesting interview on the topic of how the NYU library and university press relate to each other:
Are you a press or a library?
And in this world of increasingly electronic publication even bibliomancy keeps up with new technology:
Sortes Virgilianae and the future of the book
A little more on open access:
Experts Debate Public Access to Scholarly Research at House Hearing
And two digi-hum conferences:
Textualities in the Digital Age Symposium
The Past Has Arrived: The Digital Middle Ages and Renaissance
Technology arranges hugs for medievalists:
International Hug a Medievalist Day
After all the digital, a throwback in several significant ways:
The Babylonian Talmud, Now in Arabic
And another throwback. I really can't stand Jonathan Safran Foer's work, but I did rather love this quotation in an otherwise problematic op-ed piece: "In the absence of a stable homeland, Jews have made their home in books."
Why a Haggadah?
