                     Seminar: Using Graphic Arts as Primary Sources
                                   American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, MA
                                        Sunday, June 3 through Tuesday, June 5,

    Under the auspices of the Program in the History of the Book in American
    Culture, the American Antiquarian Society (AAS) will sponsor a hands-on
    workshop for scholars on the use of graphic arts materials as primary
    sources in historical research. Topics reflecting two of the strengths of
    AAS's graphic arts collection have been selected as this year's focus.
    Visiting scholars will lead sessions on using city views and maps to
    reconstruct nineteenth-century communities and studying political prints to
    understand the Jacksonian Era. One session will focus on publications that
    exemplify the ways in which historians have creatively used images as
    research documents.
