The Week in Links (I Sing the Body Electric Edition)

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?
