Agency in Regional Print Culture


yorkshire concert

Agency in Regional Print Culture collects a network of scholars interested in identity, location, and print.  We are researching the spaces - geographical, architectural, and textual - in which regional identities were created and articulated by print trade professionals.  In so doing, we are exploring the ways that print culture in the hand-press period contributed to the formation and negotiation of regional identity and the particular printed forms in which that occurred: newspapers, periodicals, printers’ letters, print trade autobiography.  A further strand of the project is gender, as we hope to uncover the positions and responsibilities available to women in the regional print trade compared with the metropolis.
