Acquiring reading comprehension skills regarding historical documents and secondary literature, reflection skills regarding methodical questions, presentation and discussion skills, improvement of academic writing.

Since the beginning of the age of printing the publication, trade and ownership of books were regulated by political and religious censorship. During the Reformation and the Enlightenment period censorship was reinforced. However, it was difficult, to exercise censorship at the Early Modern book markets due to the quantity of published books and clandestine book trade. The seminar analyses the practice of censorship at the Habsburg Monarchy (16th to 18th centuries). We will study books with false imprints and clandestine transnational networks of bookselling. We will analyse book markets, booksellers and their offer at the different Habsburg territories. The course is a general introduction to the Early Modern history of the book (methods, sources, digital aspects).

Reading and discussing primary sources and secondary literature; presentations in class and written papers.
