The exhibit, “Scrolls to Cell Phones and Beyond,” curated by Haruko Nakamura, Japanese Collection Librarian in the East Asia Library, officially opens today. It is displayed in the Sterling Memorial Library first floor corridor cases.
This exhibit showcases the evolution of Japanese publishing technology and the experience of the written text. It is organized in conjunction with the annual conference of the Association of Japanese Literary Studies (AJLS) to be held at Yale October 15-17. Exhibited here are items chosen with the theme of “technology” in mind, ranging from rare books to multimedia phenomena, all collected by the East Asia Library and other libraries at Yale.
Please remember to start at the far right, in keeping with Japanese reading style!
You can learn more information about the exhibit from the press release. Dates and times for “gallery” talks will be forthcoming.
