'Virtual' Meet the Author - Ann Blair

In the Meet-the-Author series, authors are invited to the MPIeR to discuss their books with the Institute's community. We will have the chance to engage in a dialogue with Professor Ann Blair (Harvard University) in the upcoming session. Her well-known book Too Much to Know. Managing Scholarly Information before the Modern Age (Yale University Press, 2010), whose French translation just came out, revised and updated by the author (Tant de choses à savoir: comment maîtriser l'information à l'époque moderne, Paris, Éditions du Seuil, 2020), will serve as the point of departure for our discussion. 

Since the exchange and production of knowledge can never truly be stopped, new avenues of communication and dialogue must be explored. In accordance with this guiding principle, we will hold this session online. For more information, please send an email to
