MICHAEL B. WINSHIP is one of the world’s most important bibliographers. From his work for the Bibliography of American Literature and A History of the Book in America to his mentoring of generations of scholars of the book through Rare Book School, he has shaped humanities fields at every level and by every means. We celebrate the occasion of his retirement from the Department of English at the University of Texas at Austin—and his move to Philadelphia—with “A Bibliographer among the Humanities: A Symposium to Honor Michael Winship’s Career.” Former students, colleagues, and friends will gather at the Library Company of Philadelphia and the Kislak Center for Special Collections at the University of Pennsylvania’s Van Pelt Library to reflect upon Winship’s accomplishments, influence, and legacy.
