The Hanes Lecture Series in Bibliography continues its commitment to distinguished print scholarship this Spring with Dr. Brooke Palmieri and Kadin Henningsen.

About the speakers: 

Kadin Henningsen is an artist-printer and Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he studies nineteenth-century American literature, book history and Transgender Studies. He is the owner of Meanwhile…Letterpress, a letterpress studio focused on producing work by, for and about trans and queer communities.

Brooke Palmieri is an artist, writer and educator working at the intersection of memory, history and rampant gender-bending alternate realities. In 2018 they founded CAMP BOOKS, a platform and traveling bookshop promoting access to queer history through prints and zines; workshops and installations; and the collaborative construction of archives related to LGBTQIA+ activism and the long history of gender non-conformity. After developing “The Queer Book” at London Rare Book School in 2017, they have continued to teach free history courses in community centers and artist-led spaces. Their writing has recently been featured in Louche Magazine and anthologies by Pilot Press, and their work has been exhibited at Gaada, the Glasgow Women’s Library, The Bower and Chelsea Space.
