This course explores the production of varieties of knowledge, the technologies involved in their production, and the ways in which culture mediates their transmission. The course begins with an overview of key historiographical debates between historians of ideas and then moves to case studies concerning orality and literacy, manuscript and print cultures, and the translation and incorporation of medical, scientific, and artistic texts around the world from ancient times through the twentieth century.

This is a split-level Undergraduate/Graduate course cross-listed with HIST 6029.
