Cover to Cover: Exposing the Bookbinder's Ancient Craft

Date/Time: Friday, 28 July 2017 - Friday, 29 September 2017

Location: Barr Smith Library, Rare Books & Special Collections, Level 1

Cost: Free: All Welcome

Bookbinding is a humble pursuit. Rarely does it receive the attention and glamour afforded to other ancient crafts. Unlike the silversmith or glassblower, whose talents are immediately obvious, the binder's craft of construction is largely concealed, making it difficult to celebrate that which we cannot see.

Yet a binding offers so much more than mere protection; it is a story in itself.

Delve into this fascinating, lesser-known craft in the Barr Smith Library, where exposed bindings, rare and old books, bookbinding equipment, tools and supplies from both Rare Books & Special Collections and the curator's personal collection will be on display.

A University of Adelaide thesis project explained in just three minutes, using only one PowerPoint slide? That's the challenge ten of our research students will tackle in the national 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) competition.

The ability to effectively communicate research impact is a skill that all of our researchers must develop. Following fierce competition in the University heats, ten finalists will compete for the main prize and will go on to compete in the Asia Pacific finals.

At this special event Research Tuesdays our students develop their research and communication skills and share their amazing research, while our audience gets to hear from our future research stars.

The presentations will be judged by a panel of experts and we also invite you to have your say in the People's Choice Award.
