This two-day international conference aims to review and reassess the contribution made by women to printing and print culture from its origins to the present day.
In conjunction with CPHC, Print Networks is organising a one-day conference that will consider the design, production and distribution of ‘industrial and business publishing’.
Two-day conference, from Thursday 28 – Friday 29 June 2018, to be held at Birmingham City University, Birmingham, UK
The University of Birmingham’s Arts & Science Festival is a week-long celebration of research, culture and collaboration across campus and beyond. It is is an opportunity for curious minds to delve into new thinking from leading academics.
Edited by Caroline Archer-Parré and Malcolm Dick, and published by Liverpool University Press, this is the first book to be published on the Birmingham printer for over forty years. It places Baskerville within his local, national and global context as a figure of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment.
This will be an informal event to launch the book and will include a talk by Susan Whyman, podcast and radio boradcast. All are welcome to join us and bring festive nibbles and refreshments, including wine or soft drinks, if you wish.
