Matt Kirschenbaum has been awarded a Mellon Foundation grant for Books.Files, a new project designed for assessing the potential for the archival collection and scholarly study of digital assets associated with today’s trade publishing and bookmaking. This project represents the first organized attempt to put ambassadors from the scholarly communities traditionally invested in safeguarding and studying the material history of bookmaking into contact and conversation with thought leaders and influencers from the contemporary publishing world. The centerpiece of the project will be a convening to bring those figures together in New York City in early 2018. Matt Kirschenbaum’s efforts will also be supported by site visits to observe the bookmaking process as it unfolds across different settings, and interviews with industry experts. Findings for scholars, archivists, and publishers will be presented in a white paper made publicly available in late 2018.
